Table with Gold Leaf Accents

I've never gold leafed before...so you experts can tell me how I did my first time around.

My best client, Shayne brought me this table. Same old story...great bones, but needed updating.

She wanted it white with gold leafing and distressed. So I gave it my best shot!

I used the Krylon gold leafing pen and I think it would be easier to use gold paint on a piece like this. The Krylon pen is great, but for smaller projects.

So how'd I do? Be honest...can't improve without constructive criticism ;)
