  1. Unpack all the components and hardware from the boxes and lay them out on the floor. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the parts and the assembly instructions.
  2. Begin by attaching the side rails to the headboard and footboard of the lower bunk. Use the provided hardware and tools to secure the connections tightly.
  3. Next, assemble the lower bunk’s support system, which usually consists of slats or a platform. Lay the slats across the side rails and secure them in place with the provided hardware.
  4. Move on to the upper bunk, following a similar process to attach the side rails and support system.
  5. Once both bunks are assembled, it’s time to attach the futon frame to the lower bunk. This usually involves securing the futon frame to the side rails using the provided hardware.
  6. Finally, add the futon mattress to the frame, making sure it fits snugly and securely.
