Repurposed Bed Spring Turned Craft Storage Idea in a Few Easy Steps
I posted a tour of my craft room a few years ago. This was one of my projects for it. Believe it or not, I was 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
- Wire baskets
- S Hooks
- Mason Jars or Recycled Jars
- Pipe Clamps
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.

This project was done quite a while ago. Since then we have had a new home and a new craft room. I went a different route in style, but used then same furniture and made some small adjustments. Check out the new craft room makeover!
