Once the baby grows out of her crib, you can remove the metal spring support and use it for a variety of purposes—it can even serve as the framework for an outdoor chandelier of twinkle lights. Weave in some vining plants to bring a romantic ambience to a screened-in porch or patio.
Everything old is new again—and alive. Painted bright orange, this old bedspring animates a living wall in this outdoor patio space. Plants are added by wrapping them in coco liner and nestling them into the coils. A little regular misting is all they require, and more plants can be added anytime.
