Was looking for something to do with an old Radio Flyer wagon.. Saw some great pics on Ana's site for garden ideas and thought this might have the right shape to make a water feature.. beats making a flower potter out of it. -And it does in fact work.. The original plan was to use a simple chrome hook-style faucet but found a great brass antique on ebay for under $10 which really set the tone for its look.
The inside of the wagon is double-coated with Rustoleum clear sealant, over-layed with a red top coat. The wheels and handle are original and the hanging bar across the front is from conduit. The wagon is attached to the stand only around the drain by 2 1/2"x 1/4" machine screws. The brass handle on the right end is so the wagon can be tilted to drain settling water. The drain is a standard 1 1/4" sink kit that connects to a compression coupler. Both the feeder and drain line have hose connections.
For advice, I would definitely say to be cautious of the amount of weight that hangs off the back of the cart. I used the extra pieces of 2x4 to build a frame to tie the pallet wood into. Combined with the feeder-line plumbing It added so much weight that i had to move the back wheels out to give it stability.
Much thanks to Ana's site and community for ideas. And I gotta give credit to the crew in the H/D paint dept in Alpharetta, GA for the sealant paint recommendation.
enjoy the pics!
