Fully restored an old little red wagon originally built my father in law. New paint job, some minor repairs, and new oak rail sides to keep our little passengers safe :-)

Approved by my little granddaughter and my son

Great job on the refinishing, it is what grandfathers are good at, and when we are lucky we get a hug from
the grandaughter.
