Why Purchase New House Shutters When You Can Update Them Using Spray Paint for Under $20. Spray Paint Can Change The Look of The Whole Home and Give It a Fresh New Look. CreativeCainCabin.comWe had a warmer day yesterday, 60 so I took the shutters off our guest house…..which is now our rental home and updated their look with spray paint. Earlier in the day I was at Menards and priced new shutter, it was $20 a pair which I didn’t think was bad but I decided I would try and spray paint one of them first to see how it looked before investing in new. The shutters were burgundy when we first bought the house and over the years…probably in the late 80’s I painted them hunter green (yep I’m dating myself for sure). Then the house sat and the shutters faded and I didn’t much care what color they were. The siding on the house is gray so I decided basic black sounded like my best color choice. After grabbing 6 cans of RustOleum Satin Canyon Black Spray Paint I headed home to take the shutters down and get painting.

CreativeCainCabin.comI had 6 shutters and one large star to paint, and only used 3 full cans of spray paint. So it only cost me $12 for the whole project and took less than 30 minutes to take them down and have everything painted with 2 coats. I couldn’t believe how well it covered. Maybe it covered so well because there wasn’t a huge color change, but I’m quite pleased with the results. And the price was fantastic.

CreativeCainCabin.comThe tin star hangs in the peak of the house, and as you can see it was in desperate need of an update too. I still have the front door to paint. Currently it’s navy  blue but I’m going to change it to a dark gray, the same gray that’s on the cabin doors. So stay tuned for the shutters on the house and many more updates taking place at the rental.

    Hi Dawndie! Oh, honey! These shutters look so nice and you are really fast! I’m sure they’ll look wonderful hanging up too. You’re really on a roll! I think of doing something and get all fired up and then talk myself out of it! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Be a sweetie,
