Paint Your Wagon-DIY

October 10, 2012

I had been on the lookout for a red wagon-I had been to a few yard 

sales but nothing really caught my eye.  So you know the old saying 

"Necessity is the Mother of Invention."  

Bead board, nail gun, spray paint and presto!

So the Little Red Wagon was born!

She is a simple wagon but packs a cute little punch.  I tucked her 

into our front flowerbed and placed a few pumpkins here and there.

I think my little red wagon adds just the right amount of color and 


Sheet of Bead Board

We used bead board for the construction of the wagon.

Bead Board Cut into 4 Sections-Rectangular Configuration

Two sides of Bead Board Attached to the Rectangle Frame

All Four Sides Nailed onto Rectangle Frame

Two boards nailed onto bottom of Frame for Future Wheels

Wheels cut from a 1x6  piece of wood cut in 5 1/2 inch circles

Wheels painted with Black Spray Paint

Festive Red Wagon Fall Display

I am thrilled with my little red wagon!  She is just the right size and 

has truly brought a touch of a rocky mountain Fall to my Texas 


Just wondering what you might be doing in your corner of the 

world for your Fall display?
