Step 1: Framework

First, I made a frame of wooden studs. I used small brackets for extra support in the corners, better safe than sorry...

On the backside i placed rubber furniture pads to save the wall from any scratches.

Step 2: Nailing the Panel

Put the nail at a 45 angle on the tongue as the picture shows and work your way up.

Step 3: Safety brackets

To secure the head board and to not make it fall when you remove the bed, I used brackets at the bottom. Make sure you locate the studs behind the panel and mount the brackets there.

Thank you! They're made of pine. I painted them with semi glossy paint. The corners are attached with nails and the top I screwed on. I covered the screws with a two-component filler.

Very nice, indeed!
What are the corner-sides and the very shiny top made of? Are they glued to the slats?
