I haven’t done a pallet project for almost a week now so cut me some slack everyone. Today, however, I am increasing what I see as the level of difficulty of pallet projects. I see me needing to find someone for assistance when it comes to today’s projects. Today the theme is pallets for headboards. I originally got this idea when we were trying to figure out a bed for our guest bedroom. At one point I didn’t know if we would have a headboard and wasn’t sure I wanted to spend a lot of money to go get one. And then I saw this picture (see right) and fell in LOVE, literally! It was at that moment I began searching other ideas for pallet headboards. Although, things worked out with our guest bed, I still have this idea in my back pocket for when we move into our next home. Below are some other ideas I have discovered using pallets for headboards.
So I realize it’s only day 2 and I am already doing a pallet, but I actually made this project and so I want to share it with all of you. I found this small “pallet” at the our farm just leaning against a pole in the machine shop and my eyes lit up!! I asked Big Ron if I could have it and he said I could so my brain began to fill up with ideas. I think that some piece of equipment that was ordered was delivered on it as I haven’t yet located another one.
I started by power washing it and cleaning it off. Once that was done I used dannish oil and a cloth is stain it and make it have a darker finish. I went all over looking for pumpkin stencils and finding none I resorted to making my own, so although they are not perfect they don’t look to shabby. I also bought stencil letters. I spray used spray paint for everything on the pallet. I sealed it with an outdoor sealer and stapled the fall garland to the pallet. TA-DA a pretty cool piece of fall decor for my front door. Now I am searching for one to use for Christmas!
