In all of her glory! One small box spring and 20 bulbs. I cant wait to see what this will look like when the buds show up on the scene!
The stuff of the day! A box spring from a small sofa, 20 clay pots, 20 paperwhite bulbs, potting soil, moss, ribbon, and a wee bit of magic. Oops, forgot about the vintage belt buckle!
First things first! Adorn the spring with a ribbon and a belt buckle. Its as simple as that!
Fill each pot with soil and place inside individual springs.
Next... place one paperwhite inside each pot sprout side up.
Place moss around each bulb. This is for looks only....vanity, vanity, vanity!
I love the veiw from the bottom. it makes the pots look like they are floating in thin air.
One last peek!

This is one of my favorite finds in a long time. Box springs are cool just about any way you slice them, but the size of this one is what I was really drawn to. A perfect square just right for a blooming table topper. Happy Monday!

Did you make this?

suewhitney writes: Thanks one and all. I guess the heat is on now to get these babies to bloom. I have more of a green thumb when it comes to junk than I do when it comes to plants. Ha!!! Wish ms luck. Thanks for the kudos on your blog Funky Junk Sisters...much appreciated. I 'll make sure to post when these guys are in bloom.

Be Well,

Hey, are those gear/cog Foundry molds in the background of the first picture available? I know this gal who would just love to get her junker paws on them...

Nice work (and unique) as always!

That little box spring is so cool and what you did with it looks fantastic. It almost looks like it was originally meant to be a pot holder…great project.

RustyDiva writes: Oh my ~ LOVE that spring! I was baffled at first thinking what a tiny bed that came off of but of course it would come from a chair or couch duh! The flowers are going to be beautiful. Great project Sue.
