Nail Head Trim Message Board

Last week I was inspired by a post from Janell at Isabella & Max Rooms. She posted a DIY message board with nail head trim. It was absolutely divine and I just had to have one. Thankfully I had all the materials on hand that I needed to put my spin on it.

- Drop cloth remnant
- Nail head trim
- Old wood board
- Batting
- Hammer
- Staple gun

Since Janell posted a tutorial I didn't feel the need to duplicate the effort. I basically followed the same steps using a wood board and adding 4 layers of batting instead of cork board.

I also didn't "frame" the board in nail head trim, I put it on the top and bottom of the board and added our last name initial. I must admit it was a bear trying to hammer the nail heads into the wood in a straight line. Ugh... its going to take some practice, but I will not be deterred.

I added it to my very eclectic gallery wall and I've started putting the board to good use.

Thanks for visiting... till next time.
