This is a Murphy bed that was finished in May 2009. It is our Euro style murphy bed . We made the leg to span all the way across the front and moved it to the top. This gave a better effect of being two doors. The customer suppled the two long chrome pulls. Matching pulls for the doors and drawer front will be added later.

It has a bookcase with a pull out desk/tray. The desk folds out and is supported by the pull out drawer.

Here are some raw video footage:

Yes, this one uses any mattress up to 12” thick. Let me know if you need the hardware and plans. The plans don’t normally build this one, but I can make some changes for you on the orginals
