About This Project

I've been using a bunch of FREE pallets on some projects here lately and decided to make the Reclaimed Wood Headboard with the pallet wood that I had. Every piece of wood came from pallets and it turned out pretty great.

We're still undecided about if/how we want to stain it....but for now it's all natural'. I made mine a couple inches shorter then the plans called for and an inche or two narrower based on the measurements of our Full Size Bed.

I documented this project as best as I could at: http://www.tommyandellie.com/Site/Home/Entries/2011/7/20_Entry_1.html

Estimated Cost: 
FREE!
Estimated Time Investment: 
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Required Skill Level:

Looks beautiful. I wouldn't

Looks beautiful. I wouldn't stain it. Just put a clear finish on it and call it good.

Stain?

Thanks for the comment. We are definitely thinking about that. I also modified another pallet in such a way that we want to hang it on the wall and hang some pictures/things in it.

Other thoughts on a possible stain/finish?

Finish

One of my favorite things is to use pallets for lumber! I have finished pallet wood before successfully using Minwax Poly-shades. Love Golden Oak as it doesn't do much but enhance the grain...grab a few samples and try them out on some scrap boards, that's the only way you will know how it will look in the end! Best of luck!
