Pallet Bed with Trundle

What seems like years ago was actually only a few short months ago....summer!  I don't believe I ever shared with you the trundle bed we made for our junior high daughter out of pallets.  It was a lot of work, but it really turned out great.




K loves having friends over, so we wanted to make it far enough off of the ground so that a trundle would fit underneath.  Plus she wanted some place for storage, and we were lucky enough to find these cute zebra bins in the perfect colors that match her room.  (She is a little zebra crazy!)  We found some freebie luggage tags that we spray painted with chalkboard paint so she could label her bins.

But after we incorporated the trundle and the storage space, we realized that it was REALLY far off the ground, so we (by we I mean Husband) built some cool stairs for her to climb into bed.  He even hid her dirty clothes basket within one of the steps!






It was a lot of work tearing apart many of the pallets, but we are really happy with how it turned out.  A note to anyone wanting to build with pallets....it takes a LOT of patience!  You'll find that pallets come in all shapes and sizes so creating a large project can be tricky.  We were very fortunate to find a business nearby that actually encourages people to come use their pallets, and they were free!

We still have lots of pallets left.  What can we make now........?
