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.

Materials:

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

Instructions:

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.
