Sprucing up the shutters

When we moved into our (what was then new) home, the shutters were a rustic red shade,
which was fine.

Not long after however we had a mega hail storm roll through, and we had to replace siding, a window, and the roof.
We chose to add a metal roof instead of going with traditional shingles, and ended up picking
out a dark gray.   Well, I no longer liked the rustic red shade on our shutters
with our light gray siding, and dark gray roof..
so I opted to take them off the house and spray paint them black.

It has been several years since then, and the paint had started fading off and revealing the
red color underneath.
 The shutters were looking a little shabby to say the least!

So I spent a day removing the shutters and repainting them.
(with a little help this time from my hubby)

This project was long overdue to say the least. :0)

I chose to go with a Matte finish this time, and am happy that I did.. it almost looks more like a
deep dark charcoal gray which is what I really wanted in the first place but couldn't find a
spray paint in that color.   So I am really pleased with how they turned out.

What a difference a little time, and a fresh coat of paint can make. :0)
