DIY pallet board bed frame and headboard idea. Used 10 pallet boards total for queen size mattress free from a restaurant (8 on bottom 2 as headboard). 3 packs of lights from ikea, $8 per pack strung through the pallets.
Color, color, color! This looks all 'dream home', but since there are plenty of old iron bedsteads with built-in box springs on Craigslist for one to three hundred, and the only other costs are the mattress and a powder-coat paint job, this setup could price out about equivalent to a brand new bed frame.
