Repurposed Bed Spring Craft Storage

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 it.



This list has some recommended product affiliate links for your convenience.


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 repurposed 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 of my repurposed bed spring craft storage idea. I also used clothespins on the wires to attach some things.

  2. 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!!!
