McHeadboard: Made Entirely of Pallets from the Trash
One of the benefits of my fiancee working where he does is that I have a never-ending, all-you-can-eat buffet of wooden pallets to craft with. Today's obsession was born our of inspiration on Pinterest, a truck bed full of pallets, and a desperate need to make something using power tools.
What I Started With:
I spent the better part of an hour wrestling with the pallets, using hammers, needlenose pliers, and MY BARE HANDS to rip them apart. I felt like some kind of awesome, wood-hating bear. Once I finally got all the boards I wanted, I lined them all up hot dog style to equal six feet. I rummaged through the garage for some 1"X4" and whipped out the circular saw and went GZZZBZZZZZZZZZRRRRZZZZZ until I had two pieces that were 1"X4"X6'. Grabbing my (roommate's) trusty drill, I laid the two 6' boards across the pallet pieces and screwed about 70 screws (seriously) through to the pallet pieces. I added a couple of legs and VOILA! Rustic, but super awesome headboard for my room.
BASK! BASK IN THE FANTASTIC!
That's some inexpensive ambiance right there! I feel a need to make everything ever rising up inside me.
