Way back when I bought all of the things I needed on how to DIY a bedspring into a bottle holder. It was oh so long ago. My inspiration was from my blogging buddy, Jeannee who wrote a post about upcycling bedsprings. I took a different route. But it just shows how bedsprings can be reimagined.
And like Jeannee, I decided it is a great post for the Thrift Store Upcycle.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

I started off by getting out some fence boards with character. The boards are weathered and have great patina. The only thing I had to do was to scrub them clean. And sand them smooth.
To put the three boards together take a piece of plywood for the back. I used a piece that was left over from the yardstick project. Glue the boards together. Then glue the piece of plywood and nail to the back.
The boards were sanded again. At first, I was going to put two bedsprings on the boards. It didn’t work out. Plus I remembered I had bought a rake head at a garage sale. I always thought it would make a wonderful wine glass holder. So it seemed like a much better idea instead of the two bedsprings.
The bedspring is on top at a slant. I used coaxial staples to put them on the boards. Rounded staples will also work. I used an empty wine bottle for the placement.
After I decided to ditch the second bedspring and go with the rake I rummaged through the knob collection. I found the perfect one that has a presence and fits in with the rusty look of the bedspring and rake.
If you read about how to update a candle holder an easy way then you will recognize how the rake is held on to the board. Just drill a hole into the board and put the knob through the hole and tighten with the nut. To hang it I drilled a hole at the top of the middle board in order to screw it into the wall.
Now, this may not be everyone’s style but if you like the rustic look then on how to DIY a bedspring into a bottle holder is just the thing for you. Or you just may want to make it into a planter. At the last minute, I tucked one of my orchids into the bedspring and it is perfect.
