Paint a hat box

The Team from Resene ColorShop Victoria Park

Turn a cardboard lidded hat box into a stylish piece of home décor using Resene testpots, with a tribal twist.

When painting with a tribal theme, throw perfection out the window and embrace crooked lines, texture, and less than perfect paint techniques to get a more organic result.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene. Find out how to create your own

Campbell from Grey Lynn

Hi Everyone,

Our 4 year old Huntaway x Fox Terrier has gone walkabouts at around midday Sunday 18 October in Waihi Township.

His name is Blue, and he is Black and Tan with a white chest and white front paw (see photos).

Blue mostly lives in Whiritoa and Auckland but was last seen on SILVERTON ROAD in WAIHI TOWN (rather than the beach) on SUNDAY 25 OCTOBER over labour weekend.

Blue is desexed, microchipped and registered in Auckland central, and has a blue Auckland central tag number 841204 on his brown leather collar.

A massive thank you to the kind locals of Waihi for continuing to call and alert us, and for trying to coax and secure Blue.

He is very friendly and sweet natured, but he is very stressed and spooked and has been running away if people attempt to approach him. If you see him, please contact Campbell on 021 532 339 or Ruth on 021 311 840.

Thank you 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
