DIY Pallet Daybed

A DIY Daybed For a Steal!

If you're dreaming of the perfect indoor/outdoor piece of furniture that won't set you back on your budget, you'll want in on Prudent Baby's DIY shipping-pallet daybed. Shipping pallets can be assembled on the cheap and have a rustic, industrial vibe that's perfect for the outdoors. You may spot some on the street, but you can also ask a local warehouse if it has any to offer or sell for cheap. While Prudent Baby's version uses a mattress, you can also order a piece of custom-fit foam (try FoamOrder) or use a few floor cushions. Check out the full pallet daybed tutorial (cute caster wheels and pipe armrests included) at Prudent Baby!

I looove it. I love crates and shipping pallets, all those that create shabby chic-ness and craft-worthy corners. :)

I am so in love with this! Definitely something I would try...we have tons of pallets at my work! And it looks like you could use some short baskets or makeshift drawers and use the pallets as storage!

Most wood pallets are contaminated with bugs and other hazardous liquids. If you are looking to do this I would try to find a place that heat treats or kiln dries there pallets. The last thing you would want is to have your home infested with wood beetles.

I actually really like this. But I think you'd have to do some mechanial fastening, just so it didn't come apart. Screws into some long boards on the base to link the bottom three, and screw the top three into the bottom three. Not sure it works perfectly in this space, but it's a really cool piece of furniture.
