I waited 30 min, then I started sanding to get all those different shades of paint to come thru. Use as many colors as you want!! I wish I would have done a pretty pink in there somewhere!

So glad I found this tutorial! Thank you for posting it! I also need to know what kind of paint to use after Krylon. I’ve spent the last hour on google trying to figure out if it has to be oil or latex and can’t find an answer anywhere. Maybe it doesn’t even matter? Just scared I’ll ruin my shelf 🙁
