The above example pallet bed is a computer-generated design, but it goes to show you how you can create a fabulous bed with pallets.  For that bed design, you would need to take the pallets apart first.  Moreover, you’d have to take care to find pallets in good shape… perhaps going so far as to buy new pallets instead of distressed, cracked and stained used pallets.

What types of wood is used to make pallets?

The 2 most popular types of wood are southern yellow pine and oak.  Another way to classify pallets is by hard and softwood types (pine is soft and oak is hard) [source: Nelson Blog].

How much do pallets cost?

The range is large depending on the type and condition.  You can find them as low as free to $5 to $25. Expect to pay $10 to $20 per pallet for good condition.  That’s still pretty cheap given you don’t need many pallets to create cool furniture such as a pallet bed.

Here are some terrific pallet bed ideas and projects.
