Question Looking for decorative hex bolt covers.

I am building a loft bed for my daughter. It is held together with 3/8 inch bolts and nuts. The bolts are not recessed. I would like to put decorative covers (plastic) on the bolt heads, but I can't seem to find anything that would work. All I can find are expensive motorcycle and auto bolt covers.

I suppose another option would be to recess the bolts and use a cap over the hole.

Does anyone know where I might be able to locate anything like this?

Thanks much.

Thanks for the suggestions. I checked out all those sites and couldn't find what I need.

I did have another thought, though, which I came across while I was looking at these sites. I'm wondering if I could use furniture joint connector bolts instead, which have a low profile head. I've never used these before. Could anyone suggest a web site that shows how to buy the right size, and how to install them?

Thanks,
Sue
