Shelves stand out when “color blocked” in multiple colors – paint base, back, sides, and shelves in coordinating colors to match your decor.

Place shelf on flat work surface covered with drop cloth.
If you’d like to preserve some natural wood trim, carefully mask those areas off. Then apply 2 light coats of primer to the entire unit. Let dry completely and sand between coats. Wipe away dust with tack cloth.
If the shelves are removable, take them out. If not, mask off all areas you don’t want to be Mountain View, and apply 2 to 3 light coats. Let dry completely between coats. Remove tape and kraft paper.
Repeat step 3 for each color – beginning with the back in Khaki, proceeding to the sides in Celery, and finally the shelves in Sweet Cream. Let dry completely between coats.
Remove the masking tape on the natural wood trim.
