Recycled wood into a colourful headboard
A simple and cheap pallet wood headboard, perfect for offcuts or old pieces.
Here, you can see that I recycled some old sheet material.
Then screwed a long straight edge in the middle, before gluing and nailing mitred pallet wood strips on.
Then trimmed the excess off.
To repeat on the other side, I removed the middle bit, and screwed more pallets to match.
After trimming the excess again, I belt sanded all the wood smooth .
Then painted contrasting colours using an array of test pots before adding trim and mounting to the wall.
