Last year the husband and I went shopping for a sofa. I fell in love with the blue Loveseat at Macy’s called ” Jaqueline Loveseat ” especially the nail head trim but my husband didn’t like it at all, so I had to search for another alternative 🙁
We ended up buying an off-white loveseat at IKEA, and I added some blue throw pillows and accents pieces to have this hint of blue in the room.

This was a year ago, but I kept on thinking about the Jacqueline Loveseat, so Yesterday I had an idea how to make this IKEA a Macys:
I bought Upholstery Nails at Home Depot (5 boxes) for $1.30 each.
This is the before:
How to apply the Nails was so easy, since I didn’t have the proper tools: the mallets and needle nose pliers, I used what I had in hand: Hammer and Scissors.
I hold the Nails in place with the scissors ( instead of the needle nose pliers) and then pound them gently with the hammers ( instead of the mallets). To have an equal spacing between each nail I had to use a spoon handle ( check out the below picture)
So finally I got to say BYE BYE IKEA HELLO KITTY..hmm I mean HELLO MACY’S
