I own a carnival. The carnival was hit by a tornado in Parsons, Kansas  April of 2000. I have rebuilt many of the rides, but I still had quite a bit of salvage. It took me 17 years, but I found a use for the sign off my concession trailer. I made this Reclaimed Carnival Sign Pallet Headboard. The total size of the bed frame is 82.5 x 69.5 and  78.5 x 18 for the sign. Each pallet was cleaned before I used them.

Carnival Sign Pallet Headboard: Unique, fun, and upcycles a bit of history. You can incorporate this idea into your decor!

The bed frame around the sign is pallet lumber. The backlighting is upcycled LED carnival lighting. I used a router to tongue and groove the boards so they would appear mostly flat and even on the front. Then I used wood glue in the grooves and used small brads to secure. I usually like to leave the nail heads for appearance, but no one wants to end up with Tetanus from a good evening in bed, so I removed them. I detail-sanded with a drywall sponge (coarse) to make the boards smooth. The sponges don’t take away from the natural look and make the boards feel smooth to the touch with minimal effort. I added 5 LED lights and a switch on the back of the sign. It gives off a perfect glow. I was very happy with the final product.

You wouldn’t happen to have the picture from the newspaper of the “angel at the fair “ the night before do you?? I live in N.C. now and I have been trying to find it for so long to show my husband!! Thanks! You all are so blessed to be ok after this storm! The entire town was so blessed! I remember how terrified I was!

Great! But…but…they left behind that little spaceship capsule. I don’t think I could have done that.

Cotton Candy would have worked better

Unless it’s a grandfather with the last name corn.
I don’t see the appeal in this
