Uses for old sets of springs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
We have:

The metal part of a crib. You know the part the mattress sets on top of?

And we will soon have springs from an old sofa as soon as dh is done harvesting the wood out of it.

The first thing that comes to mind is maybe there is a way to use this for fencing of some sort? For animals or gardens?

What else could these be used for?

A very creative friend of mine took a set of box springs and wove christmas lights in it and hung it on the ceiling. It made an awsome lighting fixture in her kids playroom.

I have place on the outside of my house that needs a "sculpture" of some sort for a vine support. It would be really cool all rusted out hanging somewhere for something to grow on, too.

I'll be interested to see what cool suggestions you get with this one!!

I personally would just recycle them
