    Creación de una biblioteca en casa que es inteligente y bonita

    used aluminum leaf because it was the brightest silver tone and looked the most to me like mirror (and the bonus is that aluminum is less expensive than silver leaf). A box of 500 5.5 x 5.5 sheets is $40-$50 and was more than enough for these two dressers.
