DIY VIDEO: Kids Wooden Wagon Overhaul

Share this project

We’ve had this awesome kids’ wagon sitting around the backyard for years and I knew if I didn’t get to it soon, it would be a lost cause. The hubs found it in an alley somewhere a long time ago, so it already wasn’t in the best condition, but it had wonderful bones and the kids loved riding in it. I figured a little love and a lot of paint could go a long way, and it sure did! The colors are super fun and non-gender specific, unlike the original pink, and of course turquoise had to be included. It never had cushions or pillows so I made those from scratch using strong outdoor fabric, which I can wash when needed. The entire overhaul took me two weeks, a little work each day, and I’m absolutely in love.

Watch how we took this old wagon and turned it into a darling beach buggy!

I hope this video will inspire you to refinish something fabulous that you have lying around (or that you find in an alley)!

This wagon-reno is a MUST SEE!

This cutie was up early with me taking photos and couldn’t wait to get in her new wagon for a ride!

The cutest girl... so happy in her refinished wagon!
