Wagon back from the brink...

My wagon was featured on CapCreations this week. 
Nice surprise, thanks.
New favorite garden accessory/decoration. A bent wheel base worn out old wagon.

A couple of Saturdays ago I found this homemade wagon, it needed some major tweaking and was a lesson in perseverance, if one way doesn't work try another...
Here it is with its steering seized up and the handle broken. After a couple of sessions of trying this and that, once the little anvil came into play, it came apart. With a little care it was as good as new with some grease and oops rust paint.
All painted and good to go used three coats of oops. 

Other photos - the pile cap Seagull and this bright pink/yellow rose, taken at the Fort Langley Rowing Club.
Playing around, bought the Belgium Mums at Costco and used a neighbour's planter for another shot. Mr. Pickwick and Mickey in a rustic planter and the teacup is Royal Albert "Silver Birch". Kangen Water Machine, solid brass towel bar, a glazing hammer, a carving from a Brew Pub in Mission. Mt. Baker from the Canadian side and last loaded with Kangen water and oops paint for when I go home.  

Kangen water is turned from acetic to alkaline it is a Japanese Invention disease doesn't flourish in alkaline conditions. What's your ph?  If one looks on the bright side, It's sure to be the right side.

  9. Great job transforming the wagon, Rob! I love it's new pop of color. Is it going in the garden?

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  10. I enjoyed this post. The wagon reminded me of one that I had in the past. My husband made it into a wheelbarrow of sorts...I planted it each year with trailing flowers. It was always so pretty. It was so heavy that I had to leave it, when I moved. I wonder if they use it today?

  11. Rob you really gave this worn out wagon a new life! Love the color and what a useful little wagon also!
