Let Us Spray
You don’t have to be Banksy to appreciate a decent can of spray paint.
At Homebase, you’ll find dozens of cans of high-end paint ($7) (imported from Germany) artfully stacked on open shelves. If the graffiti outside is anything to go by, the colours spray sharper and more saturated than most other lines and stick to anything from brick, and metal to plastic and wood.
DIY-ers can get cracking on a Miro-inspired mural, or why not paint those garden chairs a bright shade of Schiaparelli pink? My old, neglected bicycle is due for a makeover. A fresh lick of cherry red would suit me fine. —Athena Tsavliris
