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.

paint the entire piece anchor grey and then silver leaf the raised areas, touch up all the silver leaf boo-boos, then hit it with some antiquing glaze and clear wax to seal it. Wait 1-3 hours until it's tacky, then apply the silver leaf, let that dry over night and then use a dark glaze to age the piece, it makes all the difference in the world !!
