week thirty-one – decorative blocks, part two

So this week was all about decorating the little wooden wagon that holds the blocks I painted last week.

As I mentioned last week I picked up this toy second hand for a mere $5 and decided to spruce it up for Baby C.

It was structurally sound so after lightly sandpapering the wooden tray, I painted it with acrylic paint. I chose blue and yellow to match the wheels (the same colours I used on the blocks). I wanted a fun and bright look.

As the wheels and handlebars are plastic I chose to leave them as they were. I then lined the inside of the tray with a piece of felt which I glued down.

This has been a really fun and easy project to work on. Until next week… happy painting!
