Illuminated Pallet Bed

Illuminated Pallet Beds

Talk about ‘mood lighting’! This is one of the easiest DIY bed projects you can do! Some pallets, a mattress, a couple of lights and voila! Easy as 1-2-3!

Illuminated Pallet Beds

It’s amazing how pallets can serve many purposes by simply putting them together — just like these illuminated pallet beds! All you have to do is know how many pallets you need to get, arrange them and stick LED strips underneath!

Warm white lights are perfect to help you get to sleep at night. Some people on the other hand prefer a different colour such as red, blue or purple. You can have it whatever colour you want!

You can modify the pallets to suit your taste and your bedroom — cut, add or paint! See the different versions of illuminated pallet beds below and be inspired to make your next bed project…
