First up: a little red wagon for my nephew James. By Christmas, he'll only be about 14 months old, which is a little small for a toy like this, but he can always grow into it.
I intended to sand it down and refinish it to its former wooden glory, but that was not to be. I went at it with my orbital sander, but couldn't fix it up enough to make refinishing an option.
So, I switched gears and went with paint. Spray paint. The DIY/Crafter's best friend. (I taped off the wheels first, to preserve a bit of contrast.)
I know it's strange to reveal a gift when Christmas is still a month away, but I doubt James will be reading the blog any time soon. And if his mum is reading... well, sorry to ruin the surprise. :)
Are you making or refurbishing any gifts this year?
