In our case, we want the wooden boards to form flat support to receive the bed.
If you find pieces of rotten wood or that will not be interesting in your decoration, discard them.
Mold can be fought off by spraying a solution of water and bleach. Leave it for a few minutes and use a piece of cloth to remove the mold.
This is the stage of beautifying your pallets. At this point, you should already know what color they will have, whether they will be rustic anyway or will receive a different treatment.
