Merry Junkin’ Christmas!
Every junker needs a beat up pick up truck. Unfortunatly mine comes in this toy size. One day I will own an old beat up truck, but for now I will have to just enjoy this one.
I really wanted a vintage toy truck, but they are not easy to find and when you do they are VERY expensive.
I looked and looked for a cheap one to junk up.
Success…. I found this toy truck at my local thrift store.
I am not a fan of the colors it came with. I wanted it white “ish”. I covered the wheels and started off to paint it.
The dark colors that were on the truck did NOT want to be covered. It took a LOT of paint to cover.
Finally I was somewhat happy with the color.
I gave it a nice decorative sanding and then began to bling it up!
Just toss a tree in the back and a wreath on the front and you are ready for the holidays.
This little truck will find a place of honor in my home this year.
I am sure it will travel to some shows also 🙂
