Pallet Headboard

This next project was inspired by my girlfriend. She wanted to create a rustic pallet headboard and that was exactly what we set out to do. We collected four rather worn pallets and set about with disassembling them and removing the nails.

As you can tell these had been a set of rather hardworking pallets. 

 Initially we laid them out so that there would be a straight edge on either side. 

After some minor deliberation we want with very mild offsets, less than 1 inch.

We then decided to give the whole headboard a stain. Looking back at the early pictures I think I prefer the contrast of the various wood tones but this colour went well with the bed set where it would eventually go.
