This makes a handy place to hang things to remember, pictures that inspire you, or just about anything.
Old photos are a nice touch.
Not much to look at in its orginal state.
I used some upholstery webbing which was just the right width along with 1 1/2 inch black gross grain ribbon to make the weave.
I just wove it through and tacked it on the back.
Here you can see the ribbon and the other things I have clipped on for handy reference.
I just love the natural texture of the jute upholstery webbing and it makes a great place to tuck things.
With the addition of a fish stringer, you can hang things from the hooks too.

I bought this old, low trundle bed, that I think you would slide under a couch, at a yard sale and took the springs off the box, and like Candy, a while ago, decided to make a message board of sorts. You can use it for hanging almost anything. Here I have some old photos, some fabric and ribbons, and a picture from a magazine that I liked.

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.

Great rendition! I have a baby spring with metal frame.......I guess I will be adding a wooden frame for a similar look.
good looking and just plain fun!

Georgia, what a great combination of vintage materials you’ve combined. The webbing and metal frame components look great together. The bed frame was very cool to start with but with all your added details it turned into a fantastic junk project...good job.

I've got one in my workspace that is covered with "junk" - ha ha - go figure - need to organize it a bit so I can see it! :)

These are such great pieces to work with - well done, my friend!!

I'm hoping it will work as a sort of privacy screen and catch all hanger for pictures, etc. just as yours does! Love that yours holds brushes too! Very cool as usual!!
