our Pallet Headboard

Let me start with how our headboard project came about.. :0)

After dropping our daughter off  to spend the night at her friends house..
We decided to run a few errands while we were out and about.
We ran across a set of really cute black and white chevron curtains
that I thought would be perfect in her room.. so we decided
to get them.

Well after hanging the curtains in her room, I decided we needed
to find her a headboard..  which led me to looking online to see what was available..
which eventually led me to the idea of just making a simple headboard that
has a shelf so she had another spot for her books, phone, etc..

Yes, that led to.. getting to work on it. :0)

(Isn't it funny how something like curtains can turn in to a furniture project?) ha..

We had just recently took a few pallets apart for another project entirely,
but I didn't need all the boards.. therefore our wheels were turning and
after a few measurements of her bed,
I decided they were pretty much the perfect size for what I wanted.

So we started by gathering the boards, and basically putting them together,
I had a picture in mind. and basically it came together as we went.

After we had it the way we wanted it, we did a test run to see how it worked in her
room, just to be sure.. then took it back outside and gave it a good sanding.

Then of course.. had to have a pretty 'peacock' paint color and let it dry.
It turned out pretty much perfect for what we wanted.

Plus we had everything on hand, so it was basically a free project.

P.S. - She really likes it. :0)

(*Note: This piece like most headboards is quite top heavy.. 
and something like this needs to be secured to the bed frame itself or in
some other secure way to be sure it doesn't topple over. - safety first!)
