Answer: it all depends on the type of wood and your tastes.

Oil, stain or paint, there are different ways to give a beautiful shine to your wooden shutters. The first step is to know the essence of the wood. If it is exotic or coniferous, then linseed and Chinese wood oils are widely used. They make it possible to waterproof. If the shutters have veins that you want to highlight, then use a microporous, water-repellent stain. Finally, if you don't know what wood your shutters are made of, opt for microporous paint. It lets the wood breathe while effectively protecting it against humidity and strong temperature variations. Once the shutters are removed, pickle them with a special wood product, and leave to act for around twenty minutes. Then sand to obtain the smoothest surface possible in the direction of the wood fibers. For oils and stains, make slow and regular gestures until saturation. Paints only need one coat.
