To build a full size bed from pallets is not completely trivial – pallets have the ideal form factor for a single bed (90-100 cm wide), but if you want something bigger, you have to work with several, rearranged pallet parts.
Here, for brevity, only the results are shown (building process see here) – a pallet double bed with 1.40m wide mattress and generous utility space all around – to make bedside cabinets obsolete. The mattress is not placed “inside” the pallets, but rests largely on top of them (this can be done as preferred). The base is mostly built from roughly sandpapered timber beams, 6x8cm. Below: two neon lights with green coating.
Here i used one pallet of standard “Euro Pallet” size, plus a one-way pallet which came in slightly larger. Two identical pallet types are preferred, here, the disposable pallets are usually lighter in weight, have better availability and are usually untreated. Clean, new euro pallets are more heavy, more likely to be treated and harder to get (cheap/at no cost).

This is interesting, but super trashy. If you take that much time to make a bed, make a good one, whats the point?
