Little Red Wagon - Repainting with a Little Red and Black Paint

We bought it new, years ago. As time passed, it quietly became a peeled paint, bent mess.

Today, I decided to lightly refresh its younger look. Nothing too crazy, just peel off some of the peeling paint, rough up the rusted spots. Clean off the pieces of spider web.

I also found some new machine screws for reattaching the wheels and handle.
