To leaf or not to leaf?

What do y'all think about silver-leafed mirrors?  Yay or nay?

I've got a little big something that needs a face-lift and I was thinking about doing this.  So what's the verdict?

I personally like them. Can't wait to see what you're going to face-lift.

I have to imagine that the silver leaf won't give a clear reflection, which is great if you want to bounce around light but don't have anything pretty to reflect. Can't wait to see the results!

I think I like regular mirrors more

i've never seen one in person. but i think it would go very well with your style. very sophisticated, but not fussy. go for it!

Not a fan, personally, except on the frames.

It's sounding like it's split.....I don't know if the squares would show or not -- I've never silver leafed anything before.
I would be silver-leafing clear glass that I want to add some opacity to. Any other ideas for this?

I don't like them. They look like a frame around a silver board. Definitely not a mirror in any sense of the word. I DO like mirrors that are etched, aged, and silvery though!

Seems like there's something out there that would etch the glass - acid based. Thanks for the fabric store! I've already passed it on to several friends and my sister in CA is bringing her measurements to stock up! :)

I've found this tutorial, maybe it would look better than the silver contact, because the contact has those lines.

Not loving it BUT I have seen the metallic silver spray paint, which looks awesome and doesn't have those lines.
