    I've got a set of indoor shutters on a bathroom window that are looking alittle ragged. The window sill and framing is ceramic tile, with a set of shutters screwed into the sides.

    If I take them out, what's the best way to fill the holes? Window is not in direct line of fire from the shower.

    I've read auto body filler?

    I'd just use tile grout. Mix it from powder or squeeze it pre-mixed from a tube. Available in whatever color suits you to match the tile. If the first squish shrinks in, put on a second. Latex (water-based) = easy peasy cleanup. Available at any decent tile dealer. Leave the Bondo out in the garage. Rick

    Caulk also might work well.
