Blog - Rustic Pallet Twin Size Headboards & Bunkhouse

Posted by Sherrie Fairbanks on

In our bunkhouse upstairs, we had been using 2 twin size metal bedframes for guests when they came to stay with us here on the river.  We decided we needed headboards for these 2 frames, and after seeing an idea on Pinterest that used Pallets.  We still had the pallet that our new Weber grill had been delivered on.  It was extra long and strong wood pallet that was large enough to be cut in half, and was the perfect size for 2 twin size headboards.  After the hubs cut the pallet in half, and attached the halfed pallets onto 4"x4" legs  (that were laying around) on a 2"x4" piece of wood, I got to work sanding them down, so there would be no splinters. I used  "sample" paint that we had, and by mixing two different sample colors together and using plastic gloves starting to wipe on the sample paint with a foam brush and wipe it off after like 30 seconds.  Love!!  Love!!  Love!!  You can still see the pallet wood grain (so rustic) but the color to me is just so amazing!!  It's like a blueish green color!!  See pics of finished outcome. I used two greyish blue Room Essentials twin duvets on sale from  Found the beskirts and matelasse dark blue pillow shams at a resale shop and the coverlets at the foot of the bed are vintage bed spreads found at a garage sale.   Showing setup in our bunkhouse with the queen bed also. It's amazing using what we already had here onsite, and also by recycling!  Yeah!!  I do have this same Room Essentials duvet in king size & 2 sets of king size pillow shams on my site
