Here’s how…
1. Paint the inside, outside, and top edge each a different color. Let the paint fully dry before moving onto the next color or section of the shelf and in-between paint coats.
2. Lay shelves out on the floor to find a layout that you like.
3. Hang and then fill with air plants and succulents!
