Hanging a headboard on a wall above the bed has several advantages over a header related to the structure of the bed. This type of head without legs and uses less material and therefore is less costly. Installing headers on the wall gives the owner the option of a single piece or several pieces of construction kits in wood or upholstered with pre-drilled holes for easy installation.
Hold the head in the wall above the bed so that the bottoms touch the wall at the same point as the height of the mattress. Measure the height of the header part with a tape measure and divide by two to determine the center of the height. Measure the height above the bed and draw a horizontal line with a marker pen across the width of the bed in the wall to hang the brands.
Slide a metal detector over the wall to find the studs on the bed. Mark the studs with a small “X” on the horizontal line.
Fix the brackets flush to the upholstered headboard. Use a Phillips screwdriver to screw the brackets on each header flush with the stand, turning so that the screw holes are on top with the lip at the bottom. Tighten the two Phillips screws by turning them clockwise.
Place the brackets flush against the wall so that the bottom of the assembly is seated on the horizontal line mark. Joins flush mounts to the marks of the uprights on the wall, so that by turning the screw holes are at the bottom wall and the top lip. Tighten the two Phillips screws clockwise.
Raise the head and place it against the wall above the supports. Slide the head down on each bracket.
Measure and mark the wall with a horizontal line and a X on the studs in the same way you did for upholstered headboards.
Drill pilot holes for the screws in the head and placed flush mounting with two screws. Hold the head in the wall and mark the vertical location of the mounts flush to the wall.
Drill pilot holes for the screws in the wall with a drill and insert the bolts of molybdenum to withstand the weight of a wooden headboard. Hold bolt wings molybdenum, pinching toward the bolt head and insert it through the flush mounting into pilot hole. Drop the wings when they enter the wall and tighten them with a Phillips screwdriver.
Slide the head down holding it flush mounts above the bed to the wall. The upper lip fits flush mounting on the lower lip of the frame and holds it firmly to the wall.
