Introduction: Hanging Basket Trellis

Picture of Hanging Basket Trellis

This is a bunk bed futon that I found in the trash and I recycled it into a hanging basket trellis. While creating this I used a MIG welder, Matabo to cut things, a flat washer to hang the basket from, and lastly a can of black spray paint for the finishing touches.    This can be made at TechShop                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Step 1: Gathering Materials

This is the futon bunk bed I found in the trash to start with. First I cut down one piece to fit the back of the trellis to make it structurally sound. 

Step 2: Welding

Then I began assembling the trellis at a 45 degree angle so it could be a free standing structure using a MIG welder and added a washer so a basket could hang in the middle 

Step 3: Painting

Lastly I painted the trellis black
