    5. Starting at the top left corner, mark lines at about a 60-degree angle with 4-1/2" in between each line. Continue the lines down the dresser, matching as best as possible.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Once the lines are marked, begin with the lighter Metallic shades up top and the darker shades at the bottom. Stagger the colors and find a pattern that flows. After the first layer, you will need to go back it over again. On the second layer, paint over with similar colors to blend and fade the colors into each other, but keep the colors the same with Metallics you want to highlight.
