Wipe wall with the clean, damp cloth to prepare surface.
Lay down a drop cloth to protect floors.
Cut a piece of string that equals one-half the length of the shelf plus 3 inches.
Determine position of circle by using the pencil to lightly mark the center, making sure to leave room for entire circle.
Tie one end of the string tightly around the pencil and secure the other end to the center of the circle with a thumbtack.
Starting at the bottom and keeping string taut, lightly draw a circle by moving pencil clockwise until circle is complete.
Affix painter's tape to outside edge of the circle, using small strips of tape to create rounded edges; press tape firmly to wall to ensure a tight seal.
With the mini woven roller, paint inside the taped circle.
Remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; clean up any mistakes with the clean, damp cloth; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.
Sand shelf and wipe with the clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris; with the flat brush, paint shelf the same color as the circle and allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.
