This is a chalkboard faced Murphy bed built for a local customer and competed in August 2009. It started out as our Euro version and we added the chalkboard in the center and a chalk holder at the bottom. Unlike most of the Euro versions that I build, this one has a mission style crown molding.

I’ve built this version in a sideways version before. Here are a few different one I’ve posted:
