How Do I Attach a Headboard to a Metal Frame?

Answer

To attach a headboard to a metal frame, the procedure is slightly different if the frame fits into the headboard grooves or if you purchased it separately and the metal frame is a stand-alone. To attach a new headboard, you will need bolts or screws, washers, and the proper tools. The metal frame typically has holes that can be used to attach the headboard, so you will just need to line them up with the headboard and attach to the frame.

You may also want to use washers to avoid scratching up the wood and make a larger metal surface for the bolt head and nut to rest against.
