Painters covering the the boathouse’s bronze paint with white primer

A crew of city painters today began the job of repainting the Echo Park Lake Boathouse into what’s considered a more historically-appropriate color: Navajo White.  The new color-scheme comes only about two years after the landmark boathouse, built in 1933, was painted a bold shade of bronze as part of a $1.3 million renovation. But old photos of the boathouse show a white or cream colored building, which prompted the current paint job.

A coat of stark-white primer was being applied today and will be followed up with two coats of paint, which will have more of a cream-colored appearance than the primer, said one painter. The $47,000 job is expected to take two weeks to complete.
