She started with an old Pallet, and what she made out of it is really awesome..
Do you like to relax outside during the summer months? If so, you’re probably going to want to check out this awesome pallet project by The Merry Thought! Grab your partner or a friend and put your creativity and handy skills to work to create the ultimate backyard accessory that everyone will enjoy: a pallet swing bed.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- 2 pallets
- 3 eight foot 2x4s
- Measuring tape
- Twin mattress or cushion
- Vinyl zippered mattress cover
Place both pallets face up on your work surface so that the top boards are running vertically. Slide your 2x4s horizontally through the top, middle, and bottom of each pallet and screw them in place. For a standard twin mattress, you will need your structure to measure approximately 80 inches in length, which means you may need to add additional boards in between your two pallets. Remove any ends of the 2x4s that are hanging past the pallet edges.
