Step 1:

Wipe interior closet walls and shelving with clean, damp cloth to prepare painting surface

Step 2:

Lay down the drop cloth to protect floors; affix painter's tape to baseboards, ceiling and any molding or trim.

Step 3: 

Using the angled brush, apply paint just inside taped areas, then paint remaining area with the mini woven roller; use the angled brush to paint any built-in shelving and to fill in gaps.

Step 4:

Remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on paint can label.

Step 5: 

Lightly sand any rough or glossy surfaces on the wooden shelf brackets; wipe with clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris.

Step 6:

Use the flat brush to paint the brackets; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.

Step 7: 

Determine the placement of each bracket; use the pencil to lightly mark each position on the shelf.

Step 8:

Apply wood glue to the edges of each bracket and adhere to the shelf; allow to dry completely. 

Tip: For added stability, install finishing nails from underneath the shelf through each bracket to secure in place.
