A New Easy Chinoiserie DIY


I adore Chinoiserie mirrors in gold or painted in virtually any color, but isn't there something elegant and sophisticated about this silver pagoda mirror? Consider silver if you snag a great vintage Chinoiserie mirror - DIY options include silver leaf, Rustoleum Metallic Silver Spray Paint, Silver Leaf Rub N Buff, and even a Krylon Silver Leafing Pen.

Beth, Which is your favorite? I'm a gold leafer myself, But I have new client project for which I need to silver leaf a table.

Love that mirror and have the perfect small-ish mirror I can try to work a bit of magic on....scary proposition though! Hope it turns out well...thinking of the spray paint with silver leafing on top....will see what develops! Thank you, Beth!!
