This is a Murphy bed that we built in the Smithsonian style, but without a desk. One of the biggest changes we did was to add fluted molding to the bookcases. We added it as a build up and not just as part of the face frame. This gave the crown and base moldings a flared out look. We finished this in January 2014.

On the finish we had a lacquer custom matched from the customer’s sample.
