Funny you should ask. I just got a FREE baby crib. Its not really in a style I like, it's old, but modern. My first thought was to make a garden bench...that is the reason I got it in the first place...but now I'm still thinking on that one. But I spray painted the springs and they are now holding up my climbing plant...whose name escapes me at the moment. Sue
I don't know if you can follow this but if you can you will get a boat load of ideas to use springs. There is one on there somewhere that they hung a full size set of bed springs between the porch rail an the top an used it as a privecy devider with vines on it. I love that one. http://pinterest.com/search/?q=bed springs
Oh, great! Checked out Pinterest. Now I have to have bed springs.
We're actually taking out an old metal bed with exposed springs at our cabin. The fight will start when I say I want to keep the springs. I need my own garage!
