Pallet Headboard for a Nautical Bedroom

At The Thinking Closet, Lauren and her husband recently build a headboard out of wood harvested from old pallets.   They offer some great tips and tricks for anyone who wants to make anything from reclaimed pallet wood.


One of the first things that Lauren mentions is that since pallets are used for shipping large quantities of items, there are a lot of stores out there who have pallets piled up in back.  Most places will give you permission to take their pallets, and some will even pay you to take them away. She recommends using a Sawzall (reciprocating saw) to take the boards off of the pallets, especially if you need a lot of wood, and sanding down the boards until they are very smooth.  I’ve seen several pallet headboards, but this is the first one I’ve seen with a secret compartment!

  1. Thanks heaps and heaps for the feature, Roadkill Rescue! We’re so honored!

  2. Warmed “return” fuel is likely to be treated (cooled) adequately
    to prevent recirculation to your engine, subsequently combating de-rating or maybe closure of
    the engine.

  3. I go to school in Canada and we just now are learning about this in class.
    Thank you for helping me with the last little bit of my report.

  4. Alongside how your weather is at this time, i really feel things like this excellent will be in progress a lot more and more
