STEP 1: Remove shutters and transfer to an area covered with a drop cloth for painting.

STEP 2: Prep the shutters by lightly sanding any rough or glossy surfaces.

STEP 3: Wipe with a clean, damp cloth to remove dust or debris and let dry.

STEP 4: Pour paint into pail.

STEP 5: 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.

STEP 6: Allow paint to dry completely. Follow suggested dry time on the can label.

Optional: Apply a second coat of paint for added durability.

STEP 7: Using a hammer and finishing nails, reinstall newly painted shutter to house.

STEP 8: Add your personal touches to the space, like decorative pillows, hanging planters, and fun decor!
