Position the loft bed so it lies along at least one wall.
Use a stud finder to find a point where a wall stud intersects one component of the loft bed. Mark the position on either side with a pencil.
Place a C bracket around the component, laying its flanges against the wall. Mark the wall through the holes in the bracket.
Remove the bracket. Drill a hole into the wall at each marking. Use a drill bit 1/8 inch narrower than the diameter of the screws that came with the bracket.
Set the bracket back in place, lining up the holes in the flanges with the holes drilled in the wall. Screw it in place by drilling the screws into the pilot holes.
Things You Will Need
- Stud finder
- C bracket with accompanying screws
- Power drill with drill and screwdriver bits
- If either hole of the C bracket doesn't hit a wall stud, use drywall anchors to ensure a solid mount.
