      • When headboard and footboard ends are dried, attach just one of the upper siderail sections, using the bolts provided. (be sure the siderail with the 3 holes drilled in it for cross supports is the lower siderail). After Attaching the first siderail to the head and footboard, then place your center cross supports into the holes that have been predrilled in the lower siderail. Next attach just one end of the remaining siderail. Put the cross support slats into place and then bolt in the last bolt to complete the upper bed frame. Next do the same for the lower bunk.



    If your bed is not already stained, we recommend you seal it or stain it with either a clear water based lacquer or stain of your choice.
