Begin your painting project by pouring thoroughly mixed paint into a bucket and dipping a quality 2"-2½" wide nylon/polyester brush into the paint.
With your brush, paint the shutter slats starting at the top of the shutter.
Beginning at a top corner of the shutter, paint the side edge of the shutter where it meets the body of the house.
Continue until all side edges around the shutter are complete. Wipe off the excess paint that has overlapped onto the stiles.
Return to the top of the shutter and begin painting the face of the shutter frame.
Continue until the shutter is complete.
