Making beds from pallets of wood is a wonderful project, but it could be a lengthy and skillful build. It’s better to use these pallet ideas to make pieces of the bed. The headboard is made of a single piece of the long, lightweight variety. Be sure to affix it to both the frame of the bed and the wall behind it to protect your little ones while their sleeping. Then, move onto the bottom of the bed. This section is actually made of single planks pulled from a pallet and placed in a larger, sturdier box. Top it all off with a heavy, rustic stain.

Basically, you just remove the back side of each pallet and bind them together with nails and wood glue in the center. The table top is difficult to see in this picture, but it’s made of single plank pieces pulled from a pallet and then placed side by side. You can seal them with epoxy resin to prevent any spillage.

However, what you don’t see in the photo is that a single 2 x 4 plank is needed to provide the base for the shelf. You can strip those extra pieces from a second palette. You can also sand the front surface, stain it or paint the front to match the decor of the room.

40. Small Glass-topped Dining Table

Be sure to carefully select pallets that aren’t rotted or distressed in any way.
