I've been exploring letterforms and have been sketching on graph paper which is not the usual sort of paper I use. It helped me to conform this design to the proportions of this dresser. The letter W is in view here although it might not be obvious, mainly because of the horizontal line that connects the left and right vertical lines. That line seemed necessary to tie the design together.

After doing the typical prep of rough sanding and cleaning, I used a dry brush technique to brush the white paint on in the areas that would be masked off. Then, using a ruler, I drew the deconstructed W, masked it off with Frog Tape then proceed to paint two coats of Ralph Lauren Metallic Paint in Graphite. It was sealed using a staining pad and Minwax Wipe-On Polyurethane.
