Love this silver dresser. i have one pretty similar that I have never loved but wasn't sure what to do with. I'm going to go this with the silver leaf. its too bad she doesn't have a step by step tutorial but the internet is vast and wide I'm sure there is are detailed instructions out there and I will share when I get it.
Painted Furniture & Such - This board has lots of DIY painted furniture examples, and other unusual painted items. Also lots of tips and how-tos on painting furniture, floors, rugs, etc. like this faux silver leaf finish tutorial -- unreal - done with pieces of aluminum foil - tutorial.
For this project, I 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.
