Attach the Headboard, Molding and Footboard
With the cleats installed, position the headboard unit in place and attach it to the cleats (Image 1). Corner molding can be added where the bed meets the paneling (Image 2). Install the molding with finishing nails to achieve a clean, decorative finish. Attach the foot-board section to the cleats at the opposite end by toe-nailing with finishing nails. With the headboard and foot-board in place, position the center panel (Image 3) and attach it directly to the wall using finishing nails.
