Before: An old but perfectly decent looking building with sensible California colors.
After: I can't find the words. Suffice to say that no matter how blue it looks here, rest assured it's even bluer in person. Also note that the dark trim used on the fence was originally the middling blue used on the building before someone realized that was really going too far. As Stephanie says, this is the color of a Smurf. As a neighbor suggested, we should paint fish on it. Our building belongs in the neighborhood from Edward Scissorhands.
The entryway, before. Ignore my futile attempt to pry loose a doormat glued to the ground by the Will of God. That's another story.
The entryway, now. It may not be clear from this photo, but the blue is so overpowering, it's like leaving an airlock to go underwater.
