How to Silver Leaf Furniture

I seriously just survived the messiest project I’ve worked on to date. Both myself and my husband were shinier by the end of the project and even my baby monster got in on the fun and decided her feet needed to be silver leafed while she watched me work. I've posted a tutorial about the whole process at http://www.paintyourfurniture.com/how-to-silver-leaf-furniture-the-worlds-messiest-project/
