Headboards Only:
(Available in Pine)

The headboards are designed to be used with your existing metal Hollywood bed frame.  To secure your frame to the headboard, simply drill pilot holes into the headboard. With your frame up against the headboard, drive the screws through the frame into the headboard.  We recommend using a washer per screw to achieve a more secure fit between your frame and headboard.  For your convenience, we include four sets of screws and washers with every headboard we sell.

Complete Beds – Single Rail:
(Available in Pine Only)

The pine complete beds are available in a single-rail bed frame.  They are a little wider than the traditional bed frames, as the box spring and mattress sits inside the single rails (versus on top of the rails).  The side mattress rails are used to hold the box spring and mattress.  These side mattress rails have nine holes in them to receive the nine round pine pole mattress supports.

For assembly, place the nine round mattress supports in their appropriate holes in the side mattress rails. When all of the round pine pole mattress supports are inserted into the side rails, the unit will look like a ladder.  Pick up the entire unit and place the side rails into the two large holes in the headboard.  Next, marry the footboard up to the side rails.  We also recommend using a rubber mallet to get the rails as far into the headboard and footboard as possible.  Visually make sure the bed frame looks square.  When these steps are complete, tighten all the bolts with a hand-held ratchet with a 9/16″ deep-socket or impact wrench (washers are also included).

(Platform Design)
A platform bed design is available for those who just have a mattress only (no box spring used).  The beds are assembled in the same manner as our single rail complete beds with a standard box spring and mattress design.  You will need to add a custom-sized Oriented Strand Board (OSB), plywood platform, or bunkie board to be the plank support for your mattress.  We do not supply either style, but you can make your own OSB or plywood platform, or purchase a bunkie board at a mattress store.

With a platform bed, the side rails are raised higher off the ground to compensate for the lack of box spring in order to allow the overall height of the mattress to be the same as the standard bed.

Complete Beds – Double Rail:
(Available in Aspen or Pine)

The aspen complete beds feature a double-rail bed frame.  They are a little wider than the traditional bed frames, as the box spring sits inside the double rails.  The lower of the two side mattress rails are used to hold the box spring and mattress, and the upper rails are used to stabilize the entire bed unit as well as enhance the look of the bed.  These lower side mattress rails have four holes in them to receive the four round pine pole mattress supports.

For assembly, place the four round mattress supports in their appropriate holes in the side mattress rails (when necessary, due to their character, some of the aspen beds rails and supports are numbered for identification). When all of the round pine pole mattress supports are inserted into the side rails, the unit will look like a ladder.  Pick up the entire unit and place the side rails into the lower holes in the headboard.  Next, we recommend placing the upper rails in the upper holes in the headboard.  Marry up the footboard to all four mattress rails.  We also recommend using a rubber mallet to get the rails as far into the headboard and footboard as possible.  Visually make sure the bed frame looks square.  When these steps are complete, tighten all the bolts with a hand-held ratchet with a 9/16″ deep-socket or impact wrench (washers are also included).

Please note:  when assembling the aspen beds, we recommend using a hand-held ratchet vs. an impact wrench as you can strip the bolt holes if you are too aggressive with the impact wrench, as the aspen is a softer wood.

Bunk Beds:
(Available in Pine Only)

The bunk beds are assembled similarly to the pine complete beds.  There are a total of eight rails.  Four rails are used as the mattress supports and four are used as the safety top rails. There are eighteen round pine pole mattress supports for each bunk bed (nine for each mattress level).  Each mattress is placed directly on its own custom-sized Oriented Strand Board (OSB), plywood platform, or bunkie board.  These are used as the plank supports for your mattresses.  We do not supply either style, but you can make your own OSB or plywood platform, or purchase a bunkie board at a mattress store. You will need two of each per bunk bed.

For assembly, place the nine round mattress supports in their appropriate holes in the side mattress rails. When all of the round pine pole mattress supports are inserted into the side rails, the unit will look like a ladder.  Pick up the entire unit and place the side rails into the lower holes of one side of the bunk bed.  It may be easier to temporarily strap, bungee, or tape the mattress ladder together to prevent the ladder from coming apart during assembly.  Repeat this for the second level.  When both mattress rail sets are inserted in one side of the bunk bed, carefully marry up the other side of the bunk bunk to the rails.  Insert all four safety rails into one side of the bunk bed in a similar manner that you did the mattress ladder.  Carefully marry the four safety rails into the other end of the bunk bed starting with the lower set first.  Once you have all eight rails safely in both sides of the bunk bed, we also recommend using a rubber mallet to get the rails as far into both ends of the bunk boards as possible.  Visually make sure the bunk bed frame looks square.  When these steps are complete, tighten all the bolts with a hand-held ratchet with a 9/16″ deep-socket or impact wrench (washers are also included). The upper safety rails don’t have lag bolts.  If you used a strap, bungee or tape to temporary hold the mattress ladder together, you may remove them at this time.

Daybeds:
The day beds are assembled in a similar manner to the single rail beds.

For assembly, insert the two sideboards into the backboard.  Place the nine round mattress supports in their appropriate holes in the backboard (when necessary, due to their character, the aspen beds rail and supports are numbered for identification). When all of the round pine pole mattress supports are inserted into the backboard, marry up the front mattress rail to them.  Insert the front mattress rail into both sideboards.  We recommend using a rubber mallet to make sure all the rails are in as far as possible in their appropriate sockets.  Visually make sure the bed frame looks square.  When these steps are complete, tighten all the bolts with a hand-held ratchet with a 9/16″ deep-socket or impact wrench (washers are also included).

Please note:  You will need to add a custom-sized Oriented Strand Board (OSB), plywood platform, or a bunkie board to be the plank support for your mattress.  We do not supply either style, but you can make your own OSB or plywood platform, or purchase a bunkie boards at a mattress store.

Futon Beds:
The futon beds come completely assembled.  All you will need to add is the futon mattress!
