This is my completed Murphy bed/desk. I got the bed hardware from wwmurphybeds(?)(he posts here and is very helpful). The desk, cabinets and shelving were all my design. This was a tough build. I am happy with the results. It’s a queen sized bed.

It does need doors still… She wants raised profile and I REFUSE to ever build doors again. I might have local gut make them but he seems expensive ($65-95 per door).

Now that’s what I call taking advantage of space! Great work.

May I assume you are talking about doors along the bottom (shelves) and perhaps across the top?

I am only going to put doors across the bottom (2 per side = 4 total).

I always forget to mention that the counter tops are 2” thick Sapele (however you spell it – african mahogany).

Really like how everything turned out. I’ve had a similar vision for a Murphy bed but won’t work right in the room I have available.
