It's always sad when the pool is winterized and closed at the end of the season. Instead of waking up and looking out on a sparkling blue pool, we now see the dreaded winter safety cover in all its glory. My cover was originally made in 1999 and will probably need to be replaced at some point in the not too distant future. Once I have a new one made, I was wondering what it would cost to have an artist paint the fabric (all 800 sq ft) to make it look like a pool when it's open? Has anyone ever seen a beautiful custom painted pool cover? Would fabric paint even hold up to winter conditions? You would think there might be a business that does this, but I googled a bit and have not found anything for custom pool cover painting/artwork.
