In our new home we have a guest room. Yay! We had some extra pallets from construction material from our house and decided to make a pallet headboard for the guest room bed. Here’s the finished headboard. It’s a queen size mattress. It’s about 62 inches wide (little more at top where the ledge overhangs) and 5 feet tall. We couldn’t go much taller since it sits against a wall with a tray ceiling.
Below you can see the starting frame of it. I just didn’t have it in me to get pictures of each stage as it was crazy hot outside while we were building and we had a couple mishaps that had to be redone! It really wasn’t too difficult to put together. You’d need a few 2x4s, a couple pallets, some nails, sand paper and that’s about it, besides the tools. I think it cost us less than $10 to make. 😀
It’s Spring and I love to garden! It’s been a killer for me because we are renting right now (while we’re building a home on some acreage) so I have been very limited as to being able to modify this yard for gardening. I decided I just couldn’t go a whole season without a garden, so I gave in to the ever popular pallet craze and made a garden using a wooden pallet. I found a great tutorial at the Life on the Balcony blog HERE. And I also second the disclaimer that you should use pallets with caution and make sure they are heat treated, not chemical treated and don’t have any suspicious mold, paint, etc on them.
I had fun mixing some lettuce, herbs and fresh flowers in my garden. Mostly, I am so excited that I can pick this up and move it with us in a couple months! I had it flat on the ground for a couple weeks and just propped it up today- wanted to give the plants time to root better.
I will fully admit that I am TERRIBLE at taking pictures of the creative process most of the time. I seriously just get in to it and don’t want to stop until the project is done! I’m going to try and draw up some diagrams with instructions, hopefully I’ll do that sooner than later. Until then happy gardening!
