Upcycled Mattress Springs Creates Funky Lampshades,,,

Make funky lampshades from upcycled mattress springs.  In my shed was an old mattress, I wanted to upcycle it, So this is what I did.  Removed the fabric covering, underneath was a layer of horse hair, which is good for lining for hanging baskets, ( Waste Nothing ), the springs were knitted together with long springs.  Now I won't lie, it was time consuming and sometime a little monotonous unraveling the inter-joined springs, but I got there. I made lampshade from the small springs and will make some kind of functional structure from the longer ones.

I used copper wire to join the mattress springs  together.  Copper wire is from old jump leads, I wanted to join the springs together with something that would be fire resistant.

What I used,
Copper Wire
Mattress Springs
Christmas Fairy Lights
Old Lampshade Stand.

  4. The best sleeping position is to lie on your mattress, flat on your back. It can also help to place a small pillow under your knees for extra back support. Find more
