Re: How do I make a Murphy bed?

Hello @Trish8

 

Thank you so much for sharing your desire to build a Murphy bed.

 

Building a Murphy bed is a great way to give a room multiple uses and maximize the space available. I've had a look at the BHG magazine plans and it is very confusing and lacking a great deal of detail on how to assemble the bed. I understand that you don't want to spend a great deal of money on this project. However, spending money on a good plan is a great way to save money. 

 

I recommend having a look at the discussion my colleague pointed to, you will see the plans that @Brad shared. There are many elements to consider if you are building this bed from scratch. They will range from the weight of the materials, the way it is constructed, where it will be anchored, and the type of Murphy bed hardware to hold the bed in place. I suggest engaging the services of a furniture builder to get a better idea of what might be involved in building this project. Please keep us updated.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

 

Eric
