Paint a wooden chair

The Team from Resene ColorShop Pukekohe

Take one plain wooden dining chair and make it a stand-alone statement piece with two Resene colours. You don’t always need a full set of dining chairs; they can be statement pieces all on their own!

You could use a chair like this in a home office, as a plant stand, or as a bedside table for your books and lamp. Painting one chair is an easy way to inject a bit of colour into a room too.

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

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Was your place flooded? Flood costs now $17.6m and rising

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The cost of the floods on July 17 and 18 is more than $17.6m for damaged roads and state highways, damaged schools, slips on walkways, broken pipes etc. But this does not include private insurance claims for damaged houses, vehicles, businesses and farms. Was your place flooded? If so, how is the clean-up going?
