10 Ways to Repurpose Old Wagons

Each month I’m sharing a themed collection of repurposed projects and this month I have a fun round-up of ideas for repurposing old wagons.

An old wagon, especially a rusty one, would be perfect repurposed as a planter in the backyard.

A wagon repurposed as a shelf would make a fun addition to a playroom or child’s bedroom and a great place to keep treasures.
This wagon turned into a tray is such a fun idea and a great way to add some color to a room.  I love the vintage feel.

Or an outdoor bar?  Wouldn’t this be a fun accessory for al fresco entertaining?

Or you could make a very simple version and use it as an outdoor table.  I love all three of those versions.
Using a wagon for book storage is a simple but practical way to repurpose.  And it can move all over, like a little bookmobile {smile}.
An old wooden wagon repurposed as a coffee table is just so cute.  A piece of glass gives it an even, flat top.
A wagon is also perfect party decor.  This wagon doubles as a beverage cart.
Here’s an unexpected but intriguing idea.  Would you ever think to repurpose your wagon as a grill?
Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to repurposing.
