Other Peoples' Castoffs

We're still working over at the other house.

The previous tenants (and probably other tenants before them) have left behind a lot of stuff. We've been sorting through it and trying to rescue what's salvageable.

One of the items I found was this - bedsprings for a single bed. It's not much use without a frame. The local auction house won't take it.

So.... come the spring, I think I'll stand it up in the garden somewhere and use it as a support for Morning Glories.

If I didn't already have one, it would also work as a message board. You could clip bits of paper to it with clothespins...

Hi, I hadn't seen my BFF in awhile, so thought I'd stop in!

Happy Day!

You could also hang it from the ceiling and hang things off of it. I had been envisioning a cast-off farm gate for my own ceiling, but something like this would suffice and look a little more urban.
