The Wray Ave Solar Parklet is a crowd-funded initiative to transform an un-used road space into a community space for all!

The proposed park, which will occupy the parking bay space opposite Lenny the Ox cafe in Fremantle, has been designed as a relaxation/meeting spot for public use. In other words a free for all oasis! The park will be run on solar energy so you can charge your phone, computer or even plug in some music to enjoy. As a sustainable space the park requires little to run yet it does need your support to get off the ground.

We have been having some fun with MTN Hardcore Copper paint!

Especially loving it sprayed onto old bottles to make vases. This one is a Cascade Pale Ale beer bottle - bottles with embossed designs look especially great when coated in copper.

Tip: turn your bottle upside down for the first coat, then upright for your final touch ups.

$7.95 - Shop for MTN Hardcore Copper here.
