How to Paint Shutters

Front of a green house with blue shutters

Shutters are another architectural feature that would benefit from the application of a high sheen paint.

For Best Results:

To promote adhesion and durability of your topcoat, use a PREMIUM PLUS® primer.

Consider using BEHR ULTRA products--innovatively developed as a paint and primer.

  1. Dip brush into paint.

    Step 1

    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.

  2. Paint shutter slats.

    Step 2

    With your brush, paint the shutter slats starting at the top of the shutter.

  3. Paint shutter edges.

    Step 3

    Beginning at a top corner of the shutter, paint the side edge of the shutter where it meets the body of the house.

  4. Wipe off excess paint.

    Step 4
    Continue until all side edges around the shutter are complete. Wipe off the excess paint that has overlapped onto the stiles.

  5. Paint shutter facings.

    Step 5

    Return to the top of the shutter and begin painting the face of the shutter frame.

  6. Completed shutter.

    Step 6

    Continue until the shutter is complete.
