I made this cute pallet wood garden bench using two headboards, and approximately one pallet. The seat measures 100cm wide x 46cm deep and 96cm tall. The seat itself is 42cm high.

Use those outgrown beds by upcycling the headboards (and footboards) into a pallet wood garden bench!

Materials:

  • 1 x Headboard (single bed) – for the seat back
  • 1 x Headboard (single bed) – for armrests
  • 3 x pallet boards @ 2.5 x 10 x 90 cm (seat top)
  • 2 x pallet boards @ 2.5 x 15 x 90 cm (front & back seat frame)
  • 2 x offcuts from headboards @ 2.5 x20 x 30 cm (sides of frame)
  • 36 x 8-10 galvanized timber screws
  • Off-white satin acrylic paint
  • Artists acrylics

I spent a lot of time measuring and planning. I didn’t want my project to fail because I was careless. Using a handsaw, I cut the pieces to size. The next step was sanding the components well so that the paint would adhere properly and the seat was smooth. I primed the back and side pieces and gave them three coats of acrylic paint. Next, I diluted some of the same paint 50/50 with water and brushed it on the pallet boards. I quickly wiped it off with a cotton cloth to give a soft lime wash effect that would tone with the rest of the seat.

Now that the initial painting is complete, it’s time to assemble my pallet wood garden bench!

Finally, I assembled the pieces. That was fun; I don’t know what an expert would say, but the end product is stable and sturdy, level and has no wobbles! The final step was the most enjoyable for me. I painted a spray of flowers on the backrest. I wanted to give the seat a fresh, old-fashioned effect that would look good in my cottage garden.

Not too bad for an old girl… I’m nearly 65!
