This is a headboard that my wife and I made for our king size bed. It consists of 4×4’s and slates taken from old pallets. It came out pretty nice. After I heal up from my surgery, we are going to make a trunk to sit at the foot of the bed for blankets.

An excellent job of re purposing, and it came out beautiful to boot! The 4X4’s look rough cut. Are they, or did you attach more slats to the facing edge of the 4X4’s?

Thank you very much! It was our 1st re-purposing project, we’ll do lots more. The 4×4’s are rough cut. We just sanded them smooth and applied several coats of clear polyurethane semi gloss. No more slats were added to the 4×4’s.

I appreciate your positive feedback and encouragement. There are all kinds of re-purposing projects my wife and I want to try. I will post them as we get them done.

I just finished a small coffee table from Spruce pallets, with a mahogany (from pallets) trim. This Saturday is another trip to the industrial sector to go skid hunting.

Your stain/oil/finishing choices were great. I always struggle with how much to clean up the wood – to achieve the balance of character and ability to work with the wood (straight edges, sanded to whatever) you really got the balance perfect. Looks amazing.

Keep them coming!
