  • How to make furniture. Wagon Bookshelf - Step 1
    Step 1

    Remove the wooden sidepiece from one of the four wagon sides.

  • Step 2

    Use the primer to paint the rest of the wooden sides as well as the rubber wheels.

  • Step 3

    Use the white spray paint to paint the entire wagon white (we needed at least 2 to 3 coats of spray paint).

  • Step 4

    Once the paint is dry, use the card stock to make a triangle template and trace your triangles along the front and sides of the wagon. Use the teal craft paint to fill in the triangles. Paint the inside of the front wheels with the yellow craft paint.
