I don’t really want you to think about this box. I do want you to think about what it is.
Fort Collins, Colorado is a college town that consistently ranks as one of the USA’s top twenty cities. One of the reasons why it’s such a cool place to live is the city government. They are open to paintings on electrical switch boxes that would otherwise be a boring dull green.
This is a win-win situation. Artists get more visibility for their work. Everyone enjoys seeing color and creativity in unexpected places.
The application of this for you – what are some ways you can bring creativity to what would otherwise be boring? If you can think of a way, share it as a comment so others can be inspired.

In Lawrence, KS, they used to let people paint the fireplugs. Seems to me those kinds of things add value all around.
Burnaby, British Columbia — “next door” to Vancouver — does something similar. Bus stop shelters are also painted. It’s a nice touch.
