{ Red Wagon Shelf }

I have yet to pass up a broken wagon sitting on the edge of the curb in the trash.
I have at least 6 of them. lot's of red ones, a yellow one and a black one. 
O, I love that black one.
Some we use in the yard, some just sit in the garage piled with stuff.
This red one was missing some wheels.


So, I sawed (and when I say "I" I mean my nephew Matthew) off the axle and 3 remaining wheels
and was left with this.  The perfect little shelf. 


The wooden shelves are pieces left over from this project.
It's the perfect vintage pop of color for my kitchen.

  17. I'm glad creative people like you are out there. I wouldn't have thought of something like that. Now I'll be looking for an old wagon being thrown away to put shelves in for my Grandchildren. They would love to see a wagon on their wall. They would think it was cool. Boys.....BTW thank you for sharing.
