Something Pretty, Something UGLY!


Let's start with pretty. I don't know the name of this plant ,but have enjoyed watching the bees and butterflies. I've taken so many photos you'd think they were grand kids and you know how obsessed I am with that!




This is obviously the UGLY! I got the beds for $7.00 each. At a garage sale of course!




Some more pretty!




Well, back to UGLY. I know I can make the beds pretty. But,what do I do with the springs? Please help! You see, my husband did NOT want to haul these springs home. I assured him I would make something with them. Now that it gets down to it,I'm beginning to think I lied! I'm coming up with.....Nothing! I will be grateful for your suggestions.




This is not pretty. This is Beautiful!

P.S. Don't forget about the springs. Tami

looks like candytuft. weve just bought a set of bunks for $5.oo better half said if we dont use them we could make them into a shelf for firewood or other lumber to keep it off the ground in the shed. the only other suggestion.....may or maynot work, turn each spring into a candlestick holder, maybe spraypaint them silver, glue some feathers on them, oooh maybe make them into christmas tree angels?

Hey, I was in a shop and they had the bed springs attached to the ceiling on chains. Used it for displaying hanging things.
I'm thinking maybe a pot rack.
