DIY Pallet HeadBoard


    Pallet Love! Who would have thought that you can do so many different things with them? You can make tables, sofas, chairs, shelves and use them as a headboard! I had seen a similar idea on Pinterest, so when I had two pallets left over I knew what I wanted to do with them. If you can't tell I am a huge fan of overly rustic looking things and reclaimed wood, I love mixing the modern look with the classic, but overall there is nothing I love more than being able to make something myself, or put my look on something. There is a reason why I am a regular at all the thrift stores because I am always looking for a nice piece of furniture or decor item that I can fix and make it exactly how I want it. And guess what you can't beat the price! Of course it does take time, so I call it my hobby. Other people enjoy sport or drawing or relaxing in the sun, while I am always in the look-out for my next project. It is just that little effort that makes your home so YOU when you are able to put your own touch on it. Either way, this article is a do-it-yourself article and so easy!

    Again you need to find the pallets which in making this headboard will be the hardest, and lets admit if you really put your mind to it you can easily find some free pallets somewhere, either a store or a grocery store, basically anywhere they have shipments. My friend went looking for them one night and they were everywhere she said when you started looking for them. So if you can find some in pretty good shape, it doesn't matter if they are a little rough looking and not in perfect condition that will make them look even better. So ones you have the pallets, clean them good outside, I recommend hosing them down so all the dirt and dust is gone. Let them air dry for a day or two, until they are completely dry and ready to be taken inside. If your pallets are a nice color you are all good to go for the next step. But if you feel like a different color, here's what I did: I laid them outside on a blanket, I bought some spray cans at the local hardware store, I went with white, and I sprayed one coat. To be able to cover the pallet I would have to spray it a few times, but I liked the look of just one coat so I just did one. And voila, the painting is done. Get some help from your friend and carry the pallets to the bedroom that you are going to use the pallets in, place them behind the bed and this DIY project is done! This is why I LOVE pallets!! xo Abella
