Putting Sizzle in the Splash

Greece, is one of the most beautiful countries in the world! Whether you have had first-hand experience, or are a screen-top dreamer, you will agree that the gorgeous beaches, blue waters, and white-rimmed sand are extraordinary. This was the inspiration when Hands On Painters was engaged to paint the Five Oaks Swimming Pool diving board base in Catonsville.

Five Oaks was originally built in 1931 and was a public facility until the 1950’s when it incorporated and became Five Oaks Swimming Pool, Inc. It is one of the oldest in Baltimore with one of the last high dives in operation. The dive was transformed by using a Grecian-inspired blue. “I like taking the use of color to the next level. Nothing is wrong with a white or silver base but the blue is really striking,” states Jonathan. “I can’t imagine a better color for an outdoor summer diving board.”
