And now fill in the legs as shown above. Time for window trim. Add the top pieces to the tops of the legs to fill in the gaps. Is this normal, or should i apply another coat of paint and not sand. Attach cleats to the inside of the bed as shown above with 2" screws and glue, every 6-8". The most popular color? Keep bottom and outside edge flush. Your best bet is to use pocket holes, drilled from the plywood, screwing into the legs (same with the railing). I have a few questions. This completes the back panel.
