Base paint color of your choice - I used white craft paint
Clear Coat Sealer
So this is what my shelf started out as.
It was not pretty. It was only a dollar though and I can use it to hold ribbon. I think it was a toilet paper holder in it's previous life.
Step 1: Sand it. I needed to get the seal off of it so it would take the paint.
Step 2: Paint it. I painted mine white.
Step 3. Mix Mod Podge and glitter together. I used a mix of blues and greens. I mixed it 2 parts Mod Podge to 1 part glitter.
Step 4: Paint it again. This time with the Mod Podge and glitter.
Step 5: Seal it with a clear sealer and you are done!
