By Gary Boutin

Tools and Supplies:
Gloves or dish washing gloves
Glidden Gripper White Primer/Sealer paint
Paint brush
Paint can opener

Towel clean wet and dry

We have lived in our condominium for seven years and the laundry shelf  was damaged from the liquid soap we used in our washing machine. This is a simple repair and these next six post shows how this shelf will be repaired. 

This post shows the seven steps on how this shelf was painted with primer. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Glidden Gripper White Primer/Sealer paint that was used to paint the entire shelf. This paint is good enough to only give one coat of paint. Fig.2 shows that you need to cover your hands,  either use dish washing gloves or disposable gloves.

Step 2: Fig.3 shows a free wooden stirrer from the Home Depot paint department. Plus a 1-1/2 inch paint brush that was used to prime the shelf.
