Upgrading utility boxes

You know those big utility boxes that you see around neighbourhoods? They house electricals and things like telephone wires. Well, I love that in our neighbourhood someone has taken the time to decorate them. I took photos of a few of them to show you how cute they are.

Some of them are themed depending on what they are near. This one featuring the heavens (space) is at the cemetery:

This one with oranges is at the supermarket:

Pin It


  1. Love these! I also like seeing them around and what the artists have created :)

  2. That's really cool. Are the artists allowed to do it? Better then the ones over here that are covered in people's names and other words you don't want to read!!

  3. The ones in my city (San Jose, ca) are much smaller, but were recently painted by local artist who were sponsored by the city. It's fun to see the different designs. One on my walking route is painted like a farm stand.
