Guess who’s been busy? This gal! I moved last week and it’s been…an adventure, to say the least. But, I did have time to whip up this DIY nailhead trim message board today and put it in the perfect spot in my hallway. It’s the little things!

This project will probably take you about 30 minutes to complete, if that. Honestly, it’s so quick and easy but gives a very elegant result!

I used a linen fabric for this project and I highly recommend it. I purchased 1.5 yards from JoAnn’s and with a coupon, it came to around $11. All in all, I would say this project cost under $30 to complete.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Two foam core boards
  • 1.5 yards of a beige linen fabric
  • Nailhead trim (I love the Dritz nailhead trim package that you can get for a good deal here)
  • Stapler
  • Iron and ironing board (if your fabric is wrinkly)

//Step 1 – iron your fabric if it’s wrinkly. Be sure to get any major creases out.

//Step 2 – tape your two foam cords boards together. If you don’t take the price stickers off, be sure to sandwich them on the inside of the boards, otherwise they’ll be seen!

//Step 3 – lay down your fabric, and then wrap it around the boards like you’re wrapping a present. Pull the edges tightly and secure with several staples.

//Step 4 – apply the nailhead trim about 1-1.5 inches inside the perimeter. Secure every few “nails” with one of the provided pins.

Voila! A finished message board! Any leftover pins I use to tack things up. I loved making this nailhead trim message board because it added an instant amount of class to an otherwise boring-looking hallway. It’s amazing with 30 minutes and $30 can do to transform your room.
