Hello friends, I recently shared this wonderful storage idea in the shape of a Wagon!
It was a labour of love and something I really enjoyed designing and putting together.
Die-cutting all the different elements and adding all the little details was fun, and, as always I totally went over the top and crazy with my colours!
As this is a storage box, I made sure that there was plenty of space, so not only does it look good but it’s practical too.
How cute is this window!
and the Wagon wheel detail finishes it off perfectly.
