Pallet Bed

Pallets are great for building furniture. To build a bed frame out of pallets choose the ones in a good condition and as many as you need for the bed of a proper size. The first step in building a pallet bed frame is to sand the pallets to achieve smooth surface. Then the two or more pallets have to be connected with the hinges to create stability. The third step is to add caster wheels to the construction and a finishing touch can be staining or lacquering the pallets.

Storage Bed

Some sturdy storage units are simply perfect as bed frames. All you have to do is add a matress to them and possibly stairs to make it easier to climb into the bed. But before taking this direction we advice not to choose very high surfaces as well as making sure the storage units are sturdy and stable.

Other Solutions

The pipes can be welded together to form a bed frame, that is if you are good with welding metals. This can also become a great addition to an industrial bedroom. In other options cardboard is used to build bed frames since placed at certain angles it can be very sturdy. A bed frame could also be built out of wooden blocks. Especially when stained in different colors these can make for a very decorative patterned structure. Finally, a bed frame could be built out of concrete blocks, although these don’t feel or look very homey. What do you think?
