I "inherited" an old gold mirror from my in-laws years ago. It has never been my favorite color. I've always wanted to paint it silver. I few months ago I was inspired by this article in Better Homes and Gardens.
I finally bought some silver leaf at Roberts the other day and the sunshine motivated me to get to it. It took me hours! It wasn't as easy as I had hoped, but was fun to try. Here is my mirror so far. I still need to seal it with something and I may use something to tone it down a little.
