21) Pallet Bed with Storage Space for Shoes
This is a pallet bed frame that can help you solve storage space worries. Two layers of pallet frames hold this large bed but as you can see, these do more than just hold the bed for you. You may use each section as a place to store your shoes.

22) Dark Colored Pallet Bed Frame
Now, what else can be said about this cool dark colored pallet bed frame? This is a completely different concept compared to using pallet beds with a natural color or white color.

It is very interesting how very different pallet wood furniture can become with just a touch of color. Usually, pallet wood furniture takes a natural color but no doubt it is fun to play with colors. Aside from choosing a dark-colored hue, you may also consider warmer colors like red, orange, yellow or brown and cooler colors like blue, green and violet.
The sky is the limit but always pay close attention to the wall color, accent color, and window treatment color. Remember, finding the best color counts so don’t rush.

This has got to be one of the highest bed frame designs that are part of this list. As you can see, the bed is nestled on top of two pallet board levels and these pallet boards are on top of more pallet boards. You certainly need a ladder to come up. Be careful not to fall as you sleep!
And the pallet boards were not just stacked together but are also functional as well. As you can see, the boards also function as bookshelves and as small storage spaces for small items too. The owner of this room definitely has a lot of books and these were also placed on pallet wood bookcases on the wall.
Pallet wood was the material of choice for this project and obviously, it was not just used as a bed frame but on small furniture pieces around the room. You can use this as your inspiration to build your next bedroom/library.
29) Very Feminine Bedroom
Nothing could be more relaxing than cozying up on your comfortable bed. And even if you only have a mattress you can transform it into a regular bed by setting it on top of a durable pallet wood bed frame.
This is just a single layer of pallet wood and sees the difference compared to just placing the mattress on the floor. The pallet wood elevates the bed just slightly off the floor and at the same time makes it more comfortable and easier to move in and out of.
The natural and comfortable appearance of pallet wood also makes the room calm and inviting. Compared to using metal or hardwood frames, pallets are lighter and more pleasing to the eye.
The designer further made the area more inviting and comfortable with large pillows arranged in an L-shaped pattern plus large comforters. This setting makes you want to crawl back into bed again, right?
30) Cozy Pallet Dog Bed
It’s fun to have a dog but it’s no fun when he tries to steal your bed! It is very frustrating to train it to sleep in its own bed which is why this designer has made this mini bed just for the dog.
The pallets were cut and assembled to make a small frame for the dog bed. A small section on the front of the bed was cut to serve as the entryway into the doggie bed. This frame keeps the mattress from sagging and moving out of place. It also makes the area clean and easy to arrange.
This design has a lot of potentials. You can make it as large or as small as you want to depend on the size of your dog. You can also paint it according to the color you want or just use wood stain to bring out the natural beauty of wooden pallets.
And no matter what you chose, make sure that the treatment is non-toxic and won’t harm your dog especially if he is the chewing type.
