In reply to Exterior Shutter Paint by Kurt on April 11th, 2002 10:48 AM [Go to top of thread]

This is probably something that you would be better off taking to a paint store.

Last summer, I did a house that was similar to what you discribe. Ths shutters and door were done with a color that I can only discribe as a brownish cranberry. Looks sharp!

I made the paint by starting with Ben Moore's Cottage Red, I added some black paint to it and then added just enough green pigment to knock the purple color into the brown family.

A little complicated for the average homeowner. Best go to the store and get some color chips and see what looks best.

Hope that helps!
