This morning Mrs. Blandings has a delightful post about silver leafing. It has prompted me to share again some information about Melissa Sellars and her sophisticated DIY projects.
Her ethereal bedroom, featured in Elle Decor about seven years ago, proves that with a good eye and restraint, a little DIY can yield supremely elegant results. (Sellars hired Tom Scheerer to orchestrate her overall interior decor but chose to do some things on her own.) For starters, she silver-leafed her king-size four-poster bed. Sellars also made her own curtains and enjoyed hunting for vintage and antique furniture. Visit Mrs. Blandings for the how-to.
