INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Some steps may require several coats. Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Paint the bottom three horizontal panels in Eggplant.
  2. Mix Eggplant with Purple Sunset to create a purple shade that falls between the two colors. Use the mix to paint the middle panel. Save mix for STEP THREE.
  3. Apply the mix from STEP TWO to the two vertical edge panels (with the handle). Paint the last three horizontal panels in Purple Sunset.
  4. Mix Purple Sunset and Iris together to make a shade that falls in between the two colors. Paint the bottom three horizontal panels with the mix. Add a slight bit more Iris to this same mix to make it a hint lighter. Use the new mix to paint the middle panel and the horizontal edge panels. Paint the top three horizontal panels in Iris.
  5. Mix Iris and Lavender Fields together to make a shade a bit lighter than Iris. Use the mix to paint the bottom three horizontal panels. Add a touch more Lavender Fields to this mix. Use the new mix to paint the middle horizontal panel and the edge vertical panels. Paint the top three panels in Lavender Fields. Let dry completely. When dry, stack the shelves dark to light.
