DIY Scallop Pallet Headboard, Rustic Project via Ashlea of This Mamas Dance

When I built this pallet headboard, I had always intended to give it a coat of paint. The thing is, once I had the boards in place, being the natural wood lover that I am, I had to grab a few photos of it. My husband loved the look of the wood- but I painted it white anyways 😉 For something inspired by Fixer Upper- it had to be white shiplap. I told him I could always build another!

For the natural look-I gave all the boards a quick coat of mineral oil- just to enhance the warmth of the wood. I thought I would share it with you as inspiration for a slightly more rustic take on the pallet headboard.

The boards are a variety of widths, colors, and species. There is a rather dark, extra worn board on the bottom- which I actually really love. You can catch a glimpse of it in the first photo.

The warm wood pairs so nicely with the white shiplap, don’t ya think?

And then of course there is that scallop which I just can’t get enough of.

I’m feeling like a set of matching twin beds would be pretty darn adorable… which finish do you gravitate towards? White or Au Natural?
