Ever since my husband found a whole trailer load of pallets and covered our sun room walls with re-purposed pallet wood, he has been eager to find more “pallet” projects.
Finishing our sun room built his confidence in wood working. I suppose he doesn’t think it’s as hard as he thought.
I guess buying him all those power tools for his birthday and Father’s day really paid off! Lucky him….?
My husband finds all this wood from our local industrial park. Almost every single business has piles of pallets and wood thrown into a corner of their parking lot. He goes and talks to the managers and they tell him he can just take whatever he wants for free!
He was originally looking for wood to make a work bench. But when he found these beams and wide boards, he decided they would make a nice headboard.
We got the lamps from Lowe’s for $4 a piece. They are meant to be outside lights, so they don’t have individual switches. He wired them to a single light switch located in the middle of the bottom beam. Then he wired the light switch up to an extension cord that plugs into the wall. All those wires and stuff are on the back of the headboard.
The light switch also has a dimmer on it, for…. reading… and…mood lighting… in case, you know… moods happen.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go take a nap.
P.S. I am completely open to all pallet furniture/project suggestions! 😉
