This is a Murphy bed that I built with a University of Michigan Locker Theme. I built it using the UM colors. I divided the face into 3 sections and then made the side lockers the same width. Inside the side lockers I put adjustable shelves and 2 drawer. I use the CAB piston mechanism with the deluxe leg. Finished up this project in August 2015.

Here are some building pictures:

UGA fan. When you get ready to build one let me know. I’m thinking about doing plans and graphics for a pre-cut version. I may have something by that time. DIY Versions

Sounds great man. I checked out your website. You do great work. I don’t know when I will get around to making one. But plans would def help out and its good to know you sell the hardware kits.

I Love It! Very creative. My wife would love this if our kids were still home. My wife is a U of M grad, I’ll save it for her. Beautiful workmanship! Sparty On!

Very cool! Was just at the game this past Saturday. Need a pair of khaki pants and a whistle hanging on the side :) The wife would go crazy for a bed like this, problem is she would not want any guests that would have to drop it down and not be able to see the lockers! GO BLUE!

EDIT: Oh wait, Brady’s locker is still up when the bed is down… she’d be good with that… :)
