It takes the right person with the right attitude to succeed in the trades. Someone with grit, determination and endurance. These are the kinds of strengths that women have and that the industry needs.

Like Sofie Graf-Russell from D&R Decorating Ltd in Queenstown who after four years in hospitality, changed to a career in the trades finally felt “at the place I’m meant to be.”

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Queenstown

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
