- Gold Knobs
- Gold Nail heads
1. Decide what kind of nail head design you want and with a marker, mark holes where each tack will go. If your holes are 1 cm in diameter, your holes need to be 1 cm apart for a continuous line of tacks.
2. Drill a guide hole (1/32 drill bit) for every tack if you have trouble nailing them in right away. Don’t drill all the way since you want to hammer your tack into the wood itself, or else it will fall right out.
4. Switch your knobs for classy gold ones and buy a glass top (also can be bought from Ikea) for the top of your chest. And…Voila!
