Building a Pallet Daybed

This is pretty much a post referring you to another post.  Really.  Because the instructions at Prudent Baby are so concise, why re-invent the wheel.  ;)

I had a customer that saw this image on Pinterest:

It was pretty serendipitous that I had recently pinned the same photo!  She wanted one and I was off to find me some great pallets.  After I finished it and moved it into the living room, my kids didn't want to give it up.

The only major change I made was adding a "backboard" so the pillows wouldn't fall off when pulled away from the wall.  Just make sure you leave enough room for two cleats in each of the back corners.

What a fun little bed this turned out to be.

So make your way over to Prudent Baby for a knock-it-out-of-the-park tutorial!

Have a great day,

  5. I agree with Sharon, I also like the industrial look on a daybed with trundle

  6. Did you need to add any extra support to the center of the frame?

  7. This is a brilliant idea when making a daybed with trundle by combining pallet and pipes
