One of the home furniture items in which you might need to invest big money is the bed. Go to any mattress store and you’ll find prices ranging from a thousand bucks on the low end to $5,000+ or more! Bed frames, especially those made of hard wood, are quite expensive, and if you need to furnish several rooms, the cost can make a dent on your pocket. Why not recycle pallet wood to make a sturdy and attractive bed frame instead? Here is how this DIY pallet project can be done.

Here’s a good example using six pallets that demonstrates just how simple it can be to make:

Commercial movable bed frames are quite costly, but if you know how to use hammer, plane, nails, sander, and paint brush, you can save a lot of money by using pallet wood from discarded crates. For a bed frame, pallet wood pieces that are in good condition would be the best choice. They must be thick and sturdy to support the weight of one or two people. Consider the size of the bed you’re planning on using – a full, queen, or king size will each require a slightly different amount of pallets.

The head board can be made from two pallets put together to form a double purpose headboard, which will be a support and a storage place for items you always want to be close to you when you sleep such as your mobile phone or tablet, headset, charger, books, and magazines.

Determine the size of the bed and make the frame by nailing wood planks together. Then, make the head board from wood planks as well. Design the head board in such a way that there are recesses to contain gadgets, books, and magazines. After finishing the frame and headboard, apply paint. White is ideal, but using a color that matches the paint of the room will be fine. Then, attach metal wheels to make it easy for the bed to be moved.

This DIY bed frame from pallet wood will be a treasure to your home and could last for many years. And if the time comes when you need to get rid of it in a move or something, it won’t be that hard considering you didn’t spend very much on it.
