Remove shutters and transfer to an area covered with a drop cloth for painting.
Prep the shutters by lightly sanding any rough or glossy surfaces.
Wipe with a clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris and let dry.
Pour paint into pail.
Using an angled paintbrush, paint the shutters, starting with the center panel and working outward to the edges. Apply evenly so paint doesn't build up in the corners.
Allow paint to dry completely. Follow suggested dry time on the can label.
Optional: Apply a second coat of paint for added durability.
Using a hammer and finishing nails, reinstall newly painted shutter to house.
Add your personal touches to the space, like decorative pillows, hanging planters, and fun decor!
