Building a wood pallet headboard for our king sized bed was an easy choice. That said, I figured it was best to figure it out rather than fork out the cash to buy one. There are so few headboards to choose from and I actually didn’t like many that I saw in the stores. At work we have a huge pile of pallets and when the thought came to use them I said why not?
What you will need for this project:
-A circular saw or chop saw.
-A tape measure and pencil
-wood 2” x 4” (I used (4) 8’ long pieces)
-Wood pallets (I used 6 because I chose the exact boards I wanted)
-Wood screws and 90 degree angle brackets (found at a hardware store)
