It’s no secret that I think nailhead trim adds a little decorative oomph anywhere you place it, and this modern side table is no exception. It looks rather glam, doesn’t it? Would you guess that this was a clever IKEA Hackers project? Because I sure wouldn’t!

Erin Corcoran took two Lack tables, assembled them to match the form she wanted (with a solid base), and then added the nailhead strips. Total cost? $32! Visit IKEA Hackers to see more photos, and find out how to create this jaw-dropping look without dropping a lot of loot.
