Full captains bed – The double size bed usually consists of a rectangle frame in wooden box with a mattress placed on top. Given its size, it works well for a young man’s bed. And you can customize this utility bed by installing a headboard to the headboard. Since the bed is usually a wooden box, you can easily install a headboard with basic tools.
How to add a headboard to a full captains bed. Remove the mattress and base of the bed frame. In many cases, the bed will not have a frame. Slide the bed frame away from the wall so you can access the bed headboard. Measure the width of the bed frame with a tape measure. And also select a prefabricated headboard that measures the same width of its structure and at least 24 centimeters higher than the bed frame. This will allow 2 feet from the head of the bed to extend from the top of the frame. Then you can select a chip that extends higher if you choose. And then place the head against the head of the bed and transfer the mounting holes to the head of the bed at the back of the bed frame. Put the header aside for now.
Then to add a headboard to a full captains bed. Attach the bed frame to your side so you can access the back of the card installed in the bed headboard. The mattress supports on a platform mounted on the top of the bed frame. This prevents you from accessing the area without placing the frame on your side. Drill pilot holes large enough to accommodate the screws that will be used to attach the headboard to the bed frame. And then place the headboard on its side and align the screw holes in the frame of the bed and headboard. Push the bolts through the headboard and into the bed frame. Secure the bolts with nuts and a wrench. Place the bed frame upright in its normal position and slide it against the wall. And also place the mattress and mattress back into the frame.
