    I think spray painting is definitely the way to go, too many crevices to do it any other way.


    As for color, I love tan houses with black shutters...

    All paint will fade from sun and weather. Use Rustoleum 2X spray paint. Several light coats will give you a smooth finish.


    If they made paint that lasted forever you'd only need to buy paint once and they'd be out of business.

      I did mine with the Rustoleum Spray Paint you mentioned 2 summers ago on my faded shutters. It worked great!

    Mitchell....Rustoleum has some great spray paints.

  • I used Curb Appeal paint by DecoArt and it has held up great after 2 years. I used black.

    I used F 11 !

    Its not a paint but a liquid wax

    it’s costly but it works great

    you only need a little

    we use it on our cars and motor cycles

    I tried it on one shutter just to see if it would work and it still looks great after several yrs

    Nothing wrong with visiting a professional. Check with Sherwin William’s, Lowe’s or Home Depot and always “read the can” even if choosing to spray paint.

      I've never found a professional at Home Depot or Lowes. Sherwin Willians yes. I have a plumber friend went for a part time job at Home Depot after retiring. He got hired and they put him in the lawn and garden department. HA HA! What ever position they have open.
