Don't have photos, but while at the indoor flea today I saw some really cute ideas. One vendor had taken old (rusty and well used) Radio Flyer wagon beds - wheels and axles gone - and had added old wood to make shelving units. Really cute for the porch or garden shed. You could add grommet holes to hold hand tools if you wanted. Very clever idea and I really liked the upcyle of the wagon bed.

Also saw a beautiful paint job on an old Duncan phyfe style dining table. I've seen so many poorly done paint jobs on these I've lost count. This was really stylish in a dusty/slate blue with stencils. All feet had the caps too. Pretty.

The wagon sounds adorable. Wish there was a picture to see of it. Maybe if I go to pinterest I can find something similar. We shall see Smile

Juxtapost has a good photo. How did we manage before Google?

Dusty blue on a Duncan Phyfe sounds perfect, and I never would have thought of it myself ---thank you! Smile
