Where do mattresses go to die? The landfill, most often. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s still life under what looks like old junk, if you’re willing to uncover it. Old bedsprings offer an industrial aesthetic that can lay the foundation for a host of projects and decorative pieces. Even individual spring coils can be brilliantly utilized—the rustier the better. Sharpen your wire cutters, and get ready to repurpose, reuse, and recycle.

This is my L-shaped pallet couch that I built. Easy and inexpensive with the twin mattresses instead of cushions. There is a fitted sheet on both the top and bottom. I included little holiday lights in between to sparkle things up and some old books on the "shelves" to make it look classy. I also added a few pallets in the corner to act as a table. My new favorite room in the house!
