This is just a silly, self-explanatory post about how a little paint can help out a boring shelf...
AFTERI bought one of those premixed sample paint cans from Lowe's for just under 3 bucks. I slapped on one coat of paint to the back of my shelf. It took me a total of 10 minutes. TEN MINUTES start to finish!
It's not a huge change, but I notice it and like it! That's all that matters, right?!
