Trashy Tuesday, Springing on you

Le Junque

  1. You must have had a real spring in your step when you found that!!

    Cute idea you have for a memo board! It might be cute with bright colored wooden clothes pins to hold your memos onto the springs. It would make a cute idea board or even take the place of a pegboard above a work bench using “s” hooks to hang your tools and gadgets!! Neat-o find 🙂

    Your findings were so easy, they were like taking mattresses from a baby! 🙂 Hehe. Sorry, I couldn’t resist! When I saw your springs, I thought of a wall-hung herb garden with lots of moss!

    I recently salvaged fabric from an old mattress that came with a bedroom set I bought at an auction. It had a few stains (ick) but I ran it through the wash with some bleach and used the baking soda/peroxide trick to remove any that remained. It’s got a pretty pattern (which didn’t fade!) and it feels like muslin. It came from a full sized mattress, so I’ll be turning it into a tablecloth one of these days. The mattress was so old, it had excelsior instead of batting, so we didn’t have that to salvage. We didn’t keep the springs, because we didn’t have room. 🙁 They went in the recycling bin, though.
