6. Attach your new shutters. This process will depend on the construction of your house. We used 3″ deck screws and made sure to hit a stud on the back side. This is definitely a two person job!
7. Touch up the screw holes. If you’re not too picky you can simply glob some paint into the screw hole and hide it pretty well. That’s what we chose to do since these shutters won’t be inspected up close. You could also use a little filler to hide the holes better and then sand and paint over the filler.
8. Enjoy! Once the shutters are up, all that is left is to stand back and enjoy the view!
