I’m surprised it held together as long as it did.

It was the sort of combination mattress/box spring you buy with a kid’s bunk bed: Not exactly heirloom furniture, because you know he/she will outgrow it very soon. I know it moved several times because I carried it to the van a couple of times, and that was all more than 10 years ago.

Considering how easily it came apart…

…I’m impressed at how long and well it stayed together, is all I’m saying.

ETA: Disturbingly flammable, too…

    I have to ask, how did TB react to the extra hight of the new bed?

    The real bitch is disassembling the springs. The last time I did one required a side grinder and fencing pliers with the liberal application of NSFW language and slight blood loss

    TB missed the first jump but was undeterred, gave it a bit more of a running start and cleared the edge nicely. Might become a problem as he ages.

    I hope to avoid taking the springs apart entirely, just haul the whole thing to the dump. That seems easier than dealing with the pieces, for which I can think of no use.

    “…for which I can think of no use.” Flower trellis! Okay, okay, I’m only kidding.

    Well if you line the yard with them, they might successfully replace a cowpie from whence it came!

    Actually Judy,I have seen a person use old bed springs for sweet pea trellis and for morning glories. It was put into a cement foundation and it stood for years.

To the stake with the heretic!
