DIY radio flyer shelf

i was browsing pinterest... so clearly i can't take credit for the idea.
but i can show off my version!

here it is... D's new radio flyer shelf.
what we did:
1. i posted on facebook that i was looking for an old metal wagon. {craigslist only had plastic ones}
2. i had a friend respond that she had one for me! thank you S!
3. ryan removed the wheels and handle.
4. he measured and installed two wooden pine pieces for shelves. he rounded the back portion so it fit snuggly {a compression fit my dad recommended}. he also drilled two holes through the back of the wagon in through the wood. 
5. he used the preexisting holes and mounted it onto the wall. best thing... since the wagon is metal, the level stuck right to the side making it easy peasy to level.  
6. here's where i come in again... i found fun things to decorate it with. 


oh... and D loves it. he looked at it, screeched, and continued destroying his room.
