Painted Garage Door

When we lived in Los Angeles, I came across this garage door in a nearby neighborhood.

I wonder what the Homeowners Association would say? Fortunately (or unfortunately for some people) the few Homeowners Associations that exist in Los Angeles are strictly voluntary.

I lived down in Irvine, in Orange County, for several years - which is "HOA central." Apparently in Irvine it's against the law to leave your garage door opened for more than 30 minutes. I seriously doubt something like this mural would have been allowed. Too bad. It's what gives a neighborhood character.

Oh, and for whatever it's worth, homes in this neighborhood of Los Angeles - 1800 square foot 50 year old tract homes - start at about $1.5 million. Yikes.

I think it is a great garage door. Even true to the local flora, with the flowering yucca. I wish I had a garage door to paint just like that--of course, back on the East Coast, they really wouldn't get it. Gene

I have seen a lot of garage doors in Perth and every where else I have been to but this one looks brilliant. It was indeed a great artwork that I never thought anyone would think of painting on a garage door.

Great blog, I love everything you have done. What a stunning transformation! This garage door is fantastically designed. I wish my garage looked like yours. Garage doors in Perth are not usually decorated like you have done. I will definitely go for it. :)
