French Provincial Chest & Nightstand Makeover!

Okay, I bought a french provincial high boy chest and matching nightstand off of craigslist some time back.

I mentioned it in a previous post and have decided to follow through on silver leafing it... eh-hem, aluminum leafing it I mean. I've found that aluminum is much cheaper than silver and it seems to have the same beautiful outcomes. I have yet to start the actual leafing process but have removed the pulls, cleaned, lightly sanded and primed both pieces and am ready to start.

I'm a bit nervous but excited about the upcoming long road I have set in front of me. I'll have to remember to take good photos of my process. Whenever I'm done I'll come back and post an update. It will take me some time... I'm currently 6 and a half months pregnant so I will be taking lots of breaks. ;)
