DIY pallet headboard – Pallets give us the ability to make many kinds of furniture, especially for gardens or rustic wineries, but also give us the opportunity to make furniture for other rooms. In this case we will see how to create headboards. They are just an example of what you can do, the limit is your imagination. Search pallets in good condition and if you’re going to paint, you can use red or blue pallets that are cheaper.
The DIY pallet headboard is made of raw wood uncrushed, so you have to remove all the chips and roughness. This work is hard, but very necessary, you have to waste much time to leave a good finish. We will use an electric sander with medium grain sandpaper. It is recommended to use sandpaper quality, because otherwise they will wear out very quickly and we have to use many.
Once you have 2 pallets without splinters and smooth as possible, you will apply the treatment timber. If you do not apply, you could find some undesirable bugs or fungus take some wood. Keep in mind that in addition pallets are often stored abroad, which are very exposed to the elements. DIY pallet headboard applies the treatment with a wide pallet, and for interior and narrower parts use a thinner flat brush. Once applied, let dry pallets 48 hours in a dry and ventilated place.
