DIY Pallet Wood Headboard – Easy Afternoon Project that looks like it took weeks!

A couple months ago, our church was getting some TLC, and the old cedar fence behind the church got torn down. Thankfully my father-in-law knew I might like to do something with it and offered it to me before it got thrown away.

This wood was such a gem. The natural coloring couldn’t get any better, and we had been talking about making a rustic headboard. I had seen some on Pinterest that I kind of liked, but none that I wanted an exact replica of. We came up with this one and I think it turned out perfectly!

 

First we used 1x1s to build a basic frame.

As you can see, the size of the frame we did was 3×6 feet to fit our bed. You will want to make your frame whatever size you want the finished headboard to be. For the center post, we used 2 1x1s so that we could attach all the diagonal boards to those 2 center pieces.

 

Next we marked and cut the old cedar wood fence planks for the herringbone pattern.

Follow the procedure on the diagram above until your entire frame is covered with the diagonal pieces of wood.

Then we attached the diagonal wood pieces to the frame.

After all of your diagonal pieces are attached, it should look like this.

We decided to frame it in with some more fence wood.

And to finish it off, we sprayed it with a clear protective coat.
