If you choose this method, open your plantation shutters at an angle of 45 degrees to match the spray direction. Now spray at an angle of 45 degrees in the opposite direction. Finally, you will want to open them completely and spray them in a continuous vertical motion. After you repeat this process on the other side of the blinds, you need to wait for the primer to dry completely before spraying the paint according to the same instructions.
