Do you plan to make a new pallet furniture project for your children’s bedroom? Today we show you you step by step how to build a pallet headboard for a single bed, the asymmetric and irregular shapes of the wooden planks will give you a more relaxed and youthful touch to the bedroom. This project will only take you 2-5 hours to get done.
First dismantle the pallets with the hammer and a lever as we show you in this post.
Once we have extracted all the planks, we are going to sand them with a sandpaper or a sander to obtain a smooth surface without roughness. Then align the planks on a flat surface and cut their long with a saw to obtain some boards of different sizes. Next apply 2 dark varnish layers in some of these planks and on the others a clearer varnish to maintain the natural color of the wood. The intention of painting these boards with different kinds of varnish is to play with the colors and the contrasts of the furniture.
With the beams that support the structure of the pallet we’re going to build the headboard supports. So, we will set these wooden beams perpendicular to the planks with the help of some nails and hammer. Combine the dark and clear planks to obtain an heterogeneous result.
And presto! Now you can enjoy your new headboard made with pallets for the bedroom. Remember you can use the same building process to make larger beds. You only have to put it behind the bed to hold it on the wall.
