Over the course of the past year I have become interested in reusing either materials or old furniture in new ways. Most of my interest has been in reusing old shipping pallets.
This is a twin size bed frame that I made from recycled materials. The head board and footer are made completely from old pallets and the rails are from an old bunk bed that a neighbor had thrown out. Even though I sanded down all of the boards, I still left them fairly rough and didn’t bother to straighten out the edges. I wanted the wood to retain as much of its age and use a possible. This also gives the entire bed a kind of antique/rustic look. It was finished with a semi-gloss black stain.
