STEP 3: Using the cub brush, apply first paint color just inside the taped areas, then paint the remaining wall, from baseboard up to the level of the desk top, with the mini woven roller.
STEP 4: Repeat step 3 for the next two colors, painting each shelf and the wall between them a different color for a dark-to-light ombre effect.
