Apply a Protective Finish
Fill exposed screw holes with wood filler and let dry. Sand the entire daybed with coarse sandpaper. Refill holes as needed with wood filler and let dry. Sand with medium-grit sandpaper, followed with fine sandpaper. Vacuum the daybed with a soft-bristled brush to remove sanding residue. Follow the instructions on the exterior clear coat to apply a protective finish to the daybed. Let dry completely.
Hang the Daybed
Locate rafters or beams to hang the daybed on. Install lag screws directly to a beam or rafters, as done with the daybed. Use a rope or chain to hang the daybed at the desired height. Tip: Hang the daybed at 18 inches to the top for standard bench height. The daybed is ready for a mattress and bedding.
