Red paint

I once saw this guy in my neighborhood painting his curb with red paint.
I thought it was hilarious.
I also started wondering, what would happen if he decided to park outside his own house, and began to explain to a police officer that it was he who painted the curb, not the city.
Is it illegal to declare somewhere a nonparking zone? Then he would get in trouble for painting, not for parking. And if it isn't illegal to just buy red paint and choose anywhere on the street you don't want people parking, then would you be fined if you parked there yourself?

I didn't have my camera on me when I drove by. I would totally send it to... well, some website or newspaper that caught people in the act of doing possibly illegal things, I guess.
