Give your old drinks server a touch of bling with silver leaf and chalk paint. A unique way to present your drinks!

Materials you will need:

  • paintbrushes: one for paint, one for adhesive and a soft-bristle brush to apply silver leaf
  • soft cloth
  • Annie Sloan chalk paint in Graphite
  • Annie Sloan Clear Wax
  • silver leaf (available at craft shops)
  • gilding size (adhesive)
  • mirrors cut to fit on both trays

Step 1

Paint the bottom third of the trolley with two coats of chalk paint, allowing it to dry between coats..

Step 2

Once the second coat has dried completely, apply the wax with a soft cloth to seal the paint.

Step 3

Apply the gilding size to the top section; let it stand for a few minutes to get tacky. Do this in sections, rather than all at once. We created an ‘organic’ line where the paint and silver leaf meet.

Step 4

Gently place the silver leaf sheets on the tacky adhesive and brush with the soft-bristle brush to make sure it adheres everywhere.

Step 5

Let the adhesive dry completely then use the soft-bristle brush to wipe away any excess silver leaf.

Step 6

Put the mirrors in place on top of the trays.
