You may recall that back in June we posted SF Good Questions: Can I Make a Platform Bed Out of Wooden Pallets?. Although we really like the vaguely industrial look of the pallet-turned-bed, readers raised some concerns about using salvaged pallets -- including splinters and toxic chemicals from pressure-treating. We've since found a green alternative: Green Nest's Organic Slat Foundation.
Made of kiln-dried spruce wood, the two-inch wide slats are spaced two inches apart to allow for air circulation, and provide extra-firm support. The foundation also has a heavy-duty organic cotton cover.
Available in two heights here -- for a tad more than pallets scavenged from Craigslist. Prices start at $421.
(Green Nest also sells other eco-friendly products, including organic mattresses, linens, and bedding. See their website here.)
