Instructions to put together the four poster bed
This is the internal structure of the bed.
The first thing to do is to attach the four sides of the
Each side is attached via a metal bracket and four
Initially attach the three sides of the bed where the
metal bracket is attached to one of those sides.
Next attach one of the corner posts of the bed,
namely the one with the metal brackets attached.
The reason for this is that these Allen screws that
attach the metal bracket to the corner post are a little
worn and therefore it is best to keep it attached
Attach the metal corner bracket to the side of the bed
then tighten up the Allen screws with an Allen key.
Next attach the remaining posts to the corners of the
bed using the Allen key.
This shows how the corner posts should be attached.
Next attach the top part of the bed that go around all

please ensure either they are close together or
perhaps you may wish to cut some off if in excess.
This is what the bed should look like when completed.
Please ensure you have tightened the screws and
To hang the curtains to each corner of the bed you
need to again turn the arrowed screw head towards
the piece of wood it is attached to, separate both
pieces of wood, put the curtains on and re-attach
remembering to turn the screw back head the other
Three of the top sides of the bed should have two
curtains to the left and right. There are none behind
the head of the bed.
To drape the fabric over the top of the bed you need
to insert the supplied pieces of wood into both ends
of the fabric as shown.
As stated, one end is torn and has never been
repaired as it makes it easier to insert the piece of
wood. This end hangs over the back of the bed and is
never seen. The other end hangs over the foot of the

the head end of the bed.
