This is a Murphy bed that was completed in February 2016. I built it out of Pine wood and it has a lot of first for me. First time I split the desk on a queen. First time I put a High Pressure laminate on the folding desk top. First time to make that style Murphy sofa arms, and first time I put drawers in the sofa base.

Since it has a sofa I made Inset bookcases. These bookcases turn inward and provide dead space for the arms of the sofa.

I like the interior shelving. I just completed my first murphy bed a couple days ago and had considered doing something like that, but discretion being the better part of valour, I decided to stick with the kit manufacturer’s plans for the first go-round. Now that I’ve been through the process, if I had to do it again, I would include that feature in my “next” kick at the can.

I’m curious, though, since it’s not clear from the photographs, what serves as legs for the bed when folded down? Is this one of the kits with the fold-out metal leg?
