Recently I posted a tour of my craft room. Believe it or not, I am running out of space for my stuff… I know… I’m crazy. My daughter outgrew her toddler bed and I wanted to repurposed her bed spring somehow.  After thinking about it for a few days I ended up making Repurposed Bed Spring Craft Storage! Here’s how I did.


  • Bed Spring
  • Krylon Sea Glass Spray Paint
  • Tarp
  • Wire baskets
  • S Hooks
  • Mason Jars or Recycled Jars
  • Pipe Repair Clamps
  • Twine


First I spray painted the bed spring in a well-ventilated area. I used two coats of Krylon’s Sea Glass spray paint. I also did a touch up coat.


Once it was dry I had no idea what I was going to do with it… Ha! So after I came up with my craft storage idea, I headed to Home Depot and bought some S Hooks. 


I actually already had Pipe Repair Clamps that I bought when a hardware store went out of business months ago.


I inserted some old spaghetti sauce jars and tightened the clamps.

To attach the jars to the bed spring, I used twine. You can also use plastic ties. By attaching it this way, I figured I can easily move it if I change my mind.

I attached the baskets with S hooks. S hooks also make it easy to rearrange the baskets if needed.

Here are a couple AFTER photos. I also used clothespins on the wires to attach some things.

  • I just found this when I was looking for ways to repurpose an old spring bed that’s been in the storage room for years. Thank you so much! I now have a place to hang my tools… pinned to my “Cleverly Repurposed” board.

    I saw this randomly on pinterest, wasn’t looking for anything like this.. but am sooo glad I saw it! Our crib just completely fell apart and I took it apart to throw it away.. well thank goodness my dad hates to throw things away! He saved it to burn the wood in a fire pit and still has the spring part! I am reclaiming it and turning it into my craft storage!!! I have very limited craft space and this is perfect!!!

    • Yelena, I am so glad you were inspired by it!! I love hearing that! Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. I truly appreciate it and good luck on your project. If you get a chance, send over a photo!

    Where did you find the wire baskets?

  • I love your ideas! Thank you so much for sharing! I like doing things at home by myself because I think that in that way the rooms get some kind of special character. Regards!
