Remember the vintage wagon I salvaged from a neighbor’s trash pile last summer? I finally got around to repairing it and this vintage wagon restoration was so simple. The wagon is now in working order once again and I’m so glad I rescued it from the trash!
When I was a child, we had a wagon just like this at my grandpa’s house. It had belonged to my mom when she and her sister were young and I had always loved it. I loved the removable sides and the distressed red paint, and I have so many great childhood memories with that old wagon.
When I saw a similar wagon sitting in a neighbor’s trash pile, I had to rescue it. The neighbor had had a hard time parting with the wagon but it had apparently been in his garage for years and he knew he was never going to get around to fixing it. He seemed thrilled that I decided to take on the task instead of letting the wagon go off to a landfill.
