Was anyone else as smitten by Veranda’s Jan/Feb 2016 cover as I was? That stunning mirrored china cabinet instantly grabbed my attention, as did the owner’s shared love of blue.
I have a couple of Ikea pieces that, while functional, certainly don’t win any design awards. I’ve already changed out the hardware, but the mirrored cabinet got me to thinking. Could I paint it silver-leaf and get a similar effect? Maybe even do a little gold-leaf mercury-glass effect?
LiveLoveDIY has a great post on how she transformed a standard wooden vanity into a beautiful silver piece. Her result is gorgeous!
I also like how DIY & Crafts combined flat grey paint with silver leaf for the details.
So…when the weather warms up, looks like I’ll be experimenting with silver paint and silver leaf on my china cabinet & dresser. I’ll let you know how it goes!
