I spied some of these cheerful boxes while out walking near my home in Auckland and they inspired me to discover more of them throughout New Zealand.

A few years ago, the Keep NZ Beautiful Society and telecommunications company Chorus created a cabinet art programme to bring smiles and deter taggers.

Here are some of my favs from the project.
