Mattress Spring Bulletin Board

This is such a neat idea. I can think of a million things to use this for, and frankly, maybe a home needs more than one. I think one would be great between the kids’ rooms, and one in a corner that the whole family has to walk by at least once a day.

First order of business was making the rust laden spring thing safe, (what is the thing called?!?) so it recieved a good scrubbing with a wire brush and soapy water, then a satin clearcoat. (thanks for that lesson, Mustard Seed Creations!) This stuff dried so fast and actually made the rusty patina richer, while adding no gloss. I was very happy with the outcome.
