99 Pallet Bed DIY Plans
31) Creative Pallet Bed Frame Design
This has got to be one of the most updated and stylish bed frame design on this list! It is not just a bed frame design though; it is also a headboard that accents the bed. The bed frame sets the mattress high; you might need a ladder to climb up.
Because of this height, the bed becomes the focal point of this design making it inviting and very relaxing.
The wooden pallet theme extends to the walls with a headboard installation. The wooden pallets were lined up and lighting was placed at the back. The soft glow of the lights illuminates and highlights the lovely natural appearance of pallet wood.
Despite the size of this project, this is a very easy build. It is also very easy to improve this design by increasing the height of the frame and making the pallet board more elaborate.
32) Double Pallet Frame Beds
The wooden pallet bed frames in this design are tall and are painted the room’s accent color. This is a double layer of pallet boards that elevate the beds several inches off the ground. The beds/mattresses have become bulkier, more comfortable and very inviting because of this height.
This looks like a kids’ bedroom and the designer made sure that comfortable accents were used to make this room more appealing to kids. Pallets were also used on the walls and were painted a colorful shade. Aside from the bed frames, you can further enhance this room with pallets by using these to build shelves, tables, and chairs. You can do almost anything with pallet boards but take note of the furniture’s use.
33) Small and Narrow Pallet Bed on Wheels
This is a pallet board bed frame that was made for a single-sized mattress. The pallet boards were not merely stacked together but were arranged to make a movable bed frame with wheels.
This bed is a part of a shabby chic bedroom with design accents and accessories placed strategically across the room. This design is smart as it is stylish. Adding wheels at the bottom of the wooden frames has made it easier to move anywhere inside the room.
You can further improve this design by making the bed frame larger or taller depending on the size of your mattress. Got spare pallet wood? You can make the headboard larger and wider. Paint it any color you want or preserve the natural lovely color of pallet wood.
Use versatile pallet wood on another room décor like the large E and & signs that you see on the walls. With a jigsaw, you can cut these easily even intricate curves of letters and signs.
34) Pallet Bed Swing
Have you always wanted to just laze around outdoors? This is a design for a relaxing pallet wood bed frame that was constructed as a large swing. This is made from two pallet sections. The swing bed has a small mattress while the strong rope was installed on both ends and tied to a strong branch.
Imagine just lying here on a lazy Sunday afternoon and just waiting for time to pass by… The swing is huge so you can comfortably rest, take a nap or sleep for hours. The colorful pillows make a nice accent while a toss away blanket accent also makes a colorful contrast to the white mattress cover.

35) Simple Pallet and Rope Swing Bed
This is another swing bed and this time it was not constructed outside. This particular swing was built on a porch or a pergola. The swing bed was made of a single wooden pallet section with a thin mattress and a pillow to make you comfortable.
This wooden swing bed has been installed on the wooden beams of the porch using strong rope. With this swing bed, you can laze away the afternoon reading, chatting on the phone, napping or just sleeping the hours away. Compared to the previous design, this swing bed is smaller and has a very small and thin mattress. But this one has a backrest to keep you safe.
This design may be improved by using a larger mattress, constructing a larger pallet swing and making the backrest higher. As always, make sure to test the strength of the beam where you will hang the swing from. This must be able to take the weight of the pallet swing as well as the weight of the person who will use the swing.
36) Pallet Sofa Bed Frame
This is a large room that might look difficult to accessorize but the designer was able to do this by adding natural accents in and around the room. Aside from the woven area rug, fresh flowers on the coffee table and natural-colored pillows, the designer have installed a single level pallet wood bed frame to hold the large sofa bed.

The headboard is made from recycled wooden pallets, a narrow chaise lounge at the side of the bed is also made from pallet wood and a pallet wood frame is a low-lying table near the chair.
The floor was also made from wood, therefore, the wood pallet pieces simply tied the room together. So what could be done to make this pallet nature room better?

To further improve this design, you may add more pallets to make a wider headboard. You may also increase the height of your headboard if you have a larger or longer bed. And of course, this is a pallet headboard that is very easy to make you don’t even have to take a day to construct it.
