Alex has sent us from France this bed made with pallets, this is a very simple design where the pallets barely have to be modified, it has been made with nine euro-pallets in total and includes the head and the bedside tables. The mattress is 160cm wide ( 62 ” ) and 200cm long ( 78″ ) .

Here we explain you how to build this bed. First you will have to get all the 9 pallets, remember they are the Euro-pallets type, if they don’t have the same measurements the bed will be completely different.

Now we have to do the nightstands, you have to cut the pallet in order to let the mattress fit later, then finish it with a wooden board that you can get from another pallet.
