Post #8438477

I am repainting a little dining set for our daughter. Each chair has what I will call 'metal decorative nail cover' x 2 @ each joint that can be seen from the front of the chair. I will try to get a photo and post. In the meantime . . . I have had a difficult time painting around these things. they are approx size of a decorative upholstery tack but not one center sharp post/shank to nail in but 3 short sharp points to tap over a headless nail. These are like a cap. I just discovered they are removeable. Now if I could remove them all, clean them up and replace that would be great but I am sure some get bent/twisted in the process and not re useable. Can you id by name what this type of item is called for me to go looking? I find lots of metal decorative nail/tacks but not this cap like thing which is only a cover. many thanks.

HOURS LATER: I THINK THEY ARE CALLED METAL PLUG BUTTONS.
