Discarded wood pallets, painted, stained and nailed to plywood were crafted into a bed frame as a surprise wedding anniversary present by this entrant in our 2013 TOH Dont Buy It, DIY It! contest. | thisoldhouse.com/yourTOH
Using Wood Pallets: Make a bed frame! Just sand the pallets to remove splinters, and then paint and varnish to seal it all in if you so wish! And as an added bonus, you can use the underside for storage.
Redecorating by Repurposing I love the wood... either use yardsticks... or cut boards stain different colors and stencil on them what you want to say.... Like births, graduations... weddings... With all my Ancestry Information I could make a family table..
