Pallets are easy to access, it’s even free most of the time! Pick one where the timber is in very good condition and the pallet, is well built. You will need a pro-grade rope, a place to hang your swing bed, and a mattress that fits it. You can even add a backrest to it so you can sit back and relax on it.
