“How do I paint a shared fence?”

Photo by Phil

“Dear PoPville,

I have a typical rowhouse iron fence around my front yard with one side shared with a nasty neighbor. If she were a regular person, I would simply offer to paint her side as well as mine, or ask how she would like me to do it, but that isn’t going to happen. So my question is – am I “allowed” to paint the sides of the bars and the top rail of the shared fence?”
