  6. I am especially in love with the spring candle holder for the holidays! The rusty patina is lovely :)

  7. I love that wheel at the bottom. It looks like something from Amsterdam during World War II when rubber was scarce and bike tires were nearly impossible to get.

  8. Fabulous ideas for using these old bedsprings! will have to go out looking for some of these!
