Oh no she di-int! 
Yes, she did. It’s true. Mandi from Vintage Revivals covered her nightstand in tinfoil. But that’s not even the crazy part. The crazy part is it looks awesome!
As I scrolled through her post HERE and watched the transformation, I was pretty sure it was going to end up looking like my high school notebook from Spanish class. The class wherein instead of conjugating verbs, I spent the entire semester sitting in the back, peeling gum wrappers apart and decoupaging the cover of my notebook and writing super cheesy poems inside. In English. Sorry Señor Hall. 
But it looks nothing like that, it looks like weathered tin or something equally vintagey and cool. Great job Mandi!

    I confess to an similar semester long foil project, but it kept me awake and that is always a plus.

    I totally decoupaged gum wrappers onto my notebooks too when I was in high school! Oh the memories!

    were we in the same Spanish class?
    I am not sure on the teachers name, but I am sure there were notebooks/ binders/ even braclets covered in gum wrappers. Spanish class brings that out somehow I guess.

    It looks awesome! The aluminum foil project brings back memories from my childhood, when it was a popular craft. I even remember doing a smaller scale foil thing in Girl Scouts. Maybe, like fashion, home crafts can enjoy a good revival from time to time?

    my biology book took all year to cover and we weren’t allowed to chew gum at our school-a true character building challenge.

    The tin foil finish looks great! I was expecting to hate it but it’s lovely.

    Is it durable or do you have to be verrrrrry careful with that nightstand now?
