The description of Upcycled Wood Pallet Headboard

This upcycled rustic headboard is easy to build and made almost entirely of salvaged materials. With some careful planning, you can build one in just a few hours for a cost of about $20.

- From Shipping Pallet to Headboard
Warehouses, contractors and large shippers are good sources for used pallets. They are very often thrown out; so chances are someone will be happy to save on the disposal fees by giving them to you. Make sure the wood is not contaminated with any toxic or degradable materials. The wood should be intact but otherwise imperfect and varying in patina.

- Tools and Materials
To make a pallet headboard, you'll need: 2 to 3 salvaged pallets; (2) salvaged boards for legs (approximately 1" x 6"); construction adhesive; finish nailer with 1-1/4" 18-gauge finish nails; orbital sander with 80- and 220-grit sanding discs; painter's tape; paint, paintbrushes or paint sponges; stencils; shellac or polyurethane; denatured alcohol; reciprocating saw with metal blade; circular or chop saw; and a drill with bit set.

- Break Apart Pallet
Use a reciprocating saw to cut right behind the planks and through the nail shanks. Be sure to use a fresh blade and this step will go quickly. For this twin-size headboard, we used eight planks of varying widths.

- Gather the Wood
Even if one pallet provides enough wood, break down several pallets so that you can mix up the planks and have a varied look.

- Determine Height
Measure the combined height of the bed frame, box spring and mattress and then add 32". Ours was 24” + 32” makes our bed frame 56” tall.

- Make the Legs
Cut two legs to the correct height. We scored some salvaged barn wood to use for the legs. Also, cut an intermediate support to 32".

- Plan the Layout
Mix different planks from different pallets so you will create a more interesting headboard.
