What do you get when you cross a crib bed spring, a rusty meat hook, and some old pieces of chippy painted wood?
Wrong.... not some sort of horror movie!
You get a bulletin board for a teen boys bedroom.
I am not taking credit for the idea of using a bed spring as a bulletin board, you know who you are that provided me this concept.
First you re-spray the bed frame from the bronze color that you sprayed it last fall when you wanted it bronze and never got around to making the thing, to a silvery tone.....
Then, you have someone who is faster with a screw gun, drill screws from the back of random sized different colored pieces of chippy wood scraps right through the frame of the newly silver bed spring and attach all those pieces of wood.
(*The whole time knowing full well this idea is all in your head and you might have to say something like, "I don't like it, now take all the wood back off".)
* Note; I liked it.
And then you end up with a bulletin board the perfect size for the new Rock & Roll dresser you painted and plopped in your teen son's room.
As you start gathering his treasures from around the room - laying on the nightstand, the floor, inside the closet - you ask yourself if he is starting a sunglasses collection, and why the cowbell isn't on the drumset?
But you end your thoughts by contemplating that if you were a 14 year old boy you might just have bragging rights, because really.... do you think anyone else in your class at school has a bed spring hanging from a meat hook in their room?
