I (like everyone, really) am dying to own a platform bed, but can’t seem to find one that I’m in love with without breaking the bank. While searching through my many design blogs for the perfect solution, I finally stumbled upon the perfect frame… and the absolute last place I expected to find it was on a DIY blog! This fantastic bed is actually made from a few wood pallets picked up from a recycling center, and secured with screws and washers. And like every DIY project I find, I can’t help but think “why didn’t I think of that!!?” This frame would cost $10 at the most (the cost for the hardware, and fees from your local recycling center, if any. I find that they’re usually pretty happy to get it out of their way). These pallets give the space an eclectic look, and would be incredibly easy to pair with glass or stainless steal side tables! Paint the pallets or leave them bare, but either way, they’ll look great.
