Michel has sent us this wonderful bed built with Europallets, using only 6 we can see that it’s possible to create one. Besides this bed includes built-in reading lamps, charging plugs for mobile phones and 2 bedside tables all in the headboard.
As we mentioned at the beginning the bed has been made with 6 Europallets, only some minor modifications are necessary in order to adapt them as a bed, making this furniture a not very difficult piece of furniture to build.
You have to use 4 pallets as the bed base and 2 other more as the headboard. To create the base you will have to join these 4 pallets, you can join them using some wooden boards o wathever you think that can work.
To create the headboard you need 2 europalets, they have to be cut in order to don’t be too long. The hardest part is how to set this header to the base of the bed, we will have to cut a long hole at the bed base, and then introduce the pallet header. We can use some other elements to fix strongly these 2 elements, like metal brackets.
We have yet not finished the headboard, also some narrow planks have been placed in the pallet gaps to give the appearance of a continuous table. At the top we have also put a board to improve the cabinet finish, made with purchased plank, and at the sides we have set some boxes that will work as nightstands, these boxes can be recycled or build by us for the occasion.
Finally we have installed a simple wiring that supplies 2 small reading lamps and 2 charging plugs, all to make the bed a little more practical. The bed has also been raised a little bit from the ground, with the help of some wooden blocks obtained from other pallets, and finally we decided to paint the base in white and the headboard in blue, matching the colors of the bespread.
A lovely bed Michel, Thank you very much for sharing it with us!
