As my kid outgrew his standard 120 x 60cm bed, and I had already made a pallet bed for our bedroom, I decided to make an extension to his original bed. After a few hours of sanding, painting, and leveling the original pallet bed base, I attached some old wheels and got it moving. Now my kid rumbles around a 120 x 120cm bed like a King. (source)

Your baby also deserves a pallet bed. We made this moon-shaped cradle pallet bed totally out of pallets. I saw a picture of the moon-shaped cradle and guessed at the measurements. It was all done by trial and error. The hardest part was the sides and getting the correct shape and height of the bottom to make it sit correctly and even. It took me about 40 hrs from start to finish. This one was an easy choice for 62 Creative Recycled Pallet Beds! (source / PDF Tutorial)
Used a saw to break down pallets back into boards. I stained the boards with opaque white stain before fastening the boards from the back with cross members. Then, due to the weight, I bolted the entire thing to the wall to avoid injury! (source)
For this pallet be, I used Ana White’s Farmhouse pallet bed plans as a launching point but tweaked them to include reclaimed pallet wood insets. I loved the contrast of the weathered and new wood and added interest to the diagonal boards. Overall, it was a straightforward build. The most challenging part was incorporating the pallet wood insets. The total cost for the bed and trundle was only $165! We had to include this one in our 62 Creative Recycled Pallet Beds because it’s brilliant and a bargain! (source)
I used ten pallets (120x120cm) and leftover wine crates after family meals to make this pallet bed frame. For the mattress, eight pallets were fastened together. I added flower pots that slide between the two boards on the headboard between the two boards. (source)
We used ten euro-pallets to create the body of the pallet bed. Half of it has drawers on the side; the other half has two storage compartments you can access by opening the top under the mattress. The headboard is one piece XXL pallet, with filled plank gaps above mattress level. Has a mini shelf at the top. All directly planned and covered with water-based eco lacquer. An obvious choice for 62 Creative Recycled Pallet Beds! (source)
