Painting vertical louvers?

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I would like to paint my vertical louver window shades. They are plastic and I was hoping to do one of those suede or leather look finishes on them. Has anyone done this? Do you think it would work?

Personally, I've never tried to paint a leather look on louvers. I'm sure it is possible and would look nice. My biggest concern is getting a primer to stick so your paint won't peel.

A good primer to use is <a href="//" target="_blank">XIM Plastic and Vinyl Primer</a>. It does stick to most plastics.
