42 DIY Recycled Pallet Bed Frame Designs

My friends have a sunroom with no furniture, and I have a surplus of weathered, old, wood pallets. It’s actually simpler than you may think – it’s made from 2 hollow core doors with wood board dividers in between. We have an IKEA metal daybed which is slightly bigger than this one and got it in a Zafira complete with mattress.

Purchase plywood and enough yards of fabric and batting to cover the length of the plywood.

If you prefer a rolling, movable bed or need a frame for an air mattress (or regular mattress), this works great and will save you some money. If I had had a bed like that as a girl, I would have felt like a fairy princess for sure. Daybeds have long been an everyday bed in many bedrooms, now days you do not need to have your great grandmother’s, out dated daybed covering. Helpful hint: if you have a finishing nail gun you can use it to temporarily secure the facing piece to the frame until you are able to screw them in. Otherwise you will need a few helping hands or some good support.

I would love to see you drape some sheer gathered curtains tied back at the head and foot of the bed, and she’ll have her own enclosed canopy bed” — well, half a canopy” look anyway.

I’m giving this a three stars instead of 1 for all its shortcomings is because it does look true to picture (besides the huge gap on the back) and it is quite decent quality. It can accommodate a standard twin mattress (not included) and provides enough support on its own without the use of a box spring. I did manage to get the bed put together before my nieces came over, but I hadn’t re-painted any of it yet and you could definitely tell it needed quite a few more coats.

He then attached the legs first…again, just bought at Lowe’s and you can trim them to be the length that works for your doors. Weight is a big issue as I’m trying to keep this daybed very close to the same weight of the sofa it is replacing.

The only problems I had was putting it together, most of the assembly was easy but one of the bed frames was bent just enough that the holes did not match up, however my husband bent it back into shape with a hammer and some other tools and the rest of the assembly was easy. Next up Sam is adding some spiffy wheels to make our pallet bed easy to move around in the space- also elevating it off the floor a bit.

I got three 3/4″ X 3″ bolts for attaching the two pallets together, and 20 3/4″ X 2″ bolts for attaching the casters to the pallets, and enough washers (23 minimum) and nuts to secure them all and account for any I might drop while working (no one wants to go back to the hardware store for one washer, so get extras).
