Apply Trim Pieces

Once your painted trim pieces are dry, apply them to the headboard with liquid nails. Use C clamps in the corners with a piece of spare wood to help the liquid nails set properly. Let set overnight. The next day, flip it over and add staples in the corners where the trim meets. Screw heavy-duty hangers into the wood to hang the headboard.
