My design confidant, Nicole, is in the process of redesigning her bedroom. I love watching her imagination run wild as she comes up with incredible design concepts. She has a nice large collection of accessories that I like to "rent out," sometimes she comes over and notices a piece and asks "Is this mine?" and I of course try to convince her that it is mine or that she had gifted it to me months ago..
Last week Nicole asked me what I thought about her wrapping a dresser in a metallic silver wallpaper, which of course if done correctly would look ridiculously sexy.. but the cost of materials and labor would end up costing more than the dresser itself. I suggested possibly silver leafing the dresser instead. After some research, I saw that silver leafing was cost effective, time consuming but easy to apply, and the end result is almost identical to the original concept.
