This is awesome!  It looks like a watermelon.  Did you coat it with anything after the paint?  I have a couple of shelves that I painted, but haven't coated them to protect them because I'm not really sure what to use.

thanks  Grin i used clear a  matt varnish over the top because the paint was basic emulsion so a bit chalky without a cover coat
