It was in rough shape.
You know what? It never fails...bold paint colors outdoors are amazing! Just make sure the paint is exterior grade and that it is cohesive with your garden and landscape colors. For me, I use a lot of lavender, blues and whites in my garden, so this intense cobalt really works. I would love to see this done in orange, with a yellow scheme, too. There are so many options so be bold, be unafraid.
