Log Cabin Furnitures: A Bed Made of Pallets

We spend about a third of our life sleeping and this is why a bed has always formed an integral part of our interior. So, it’s obvious that a bed should be both comfortable and nice enough to wake up in when the morning comes. So, what should you do when you want to have a stylish bed but you don’t want to spend a lot of money? Well, here we have an interesting idea of how to make a stylish bed from wooden pallets (which is suitable for log cabin).

To Make A Bed from Wooden Pallets You'll Need the Following:

 *  2 EURO pallets 120 x 80 x 145 cm    *  6 trolley wheels (12cm diameter wheels are ideal)    *  2 joint panels (to join the pallets)    *  screws    *  a mattress (an old mattress will work just as well)

How to Make A Bed:

   1  Make the 2 pallets the same length (you may need to shorten 1 pallet to make both pallets the same length)

   2  Rub the surface of the pallets with sand paper to make it smooth

  3  After the pallets are smooth, coat with oil or varnish prepared for wooden surfaces. Alternatively, you can paint the pallets any colour you like

   4  Join the pallets by the joint panels

   5  Attach the wheels on the underside of the pallets at the corners and in the middle

   6  Place the mattress on the pallet ’frame’

And that's it. Now you have yourself a stylish bed!

If you have a log cabin - furnitures made of wooden pallets will be a good decision for installing its interior. You can not only make a bed, but also other furnitures for sitting room, outside terrace or gazebo. Such furnitures are easy to maintain and you can always change their appearance.
