Clayton Grey Inspired Nailhead Side Table

Materials: Lack Side Table

Description: I bought two Lack tables. I assembled one fully and used the top of the second glued it and used it as a base which created the form I needed to replicate the nail head side table from Clayton Grey. I used strip nail heads and followed the lines in the picture!

Total Project:
14.00 2-tables
18.00 for strip of nail heads.

Clayton Grey’s $445.00

    That is even better, as you have the shelf on the bottom, too.

    That’s brilliant work – practical and looks funky. I love bespoke furniture designs rather have the same old table or chair as everyone else.
