This is a bed that I completed in March 2011. It is a Hudson Bay Murphy bed with a desk added to the front. In the same month I finished up Manchester Murphy bed (see project page) with a desk. Both the beds are real similar, but with slightly different moldings on the face.

Color
We matched the color without ever seen a true sample. The customer emailed a pictures. I send a sample, of course you cant match off computer monitors. The customer receive the sample and it was slightly off, as expected. The customer said was close enough, but I asked the question on what direction the color needed to be tweaked. They told me and it turned out perfect. Luck? I’m not going to admit that. Here is a email received from the customer:

”Thanks for the great job you and your team have done on our Murphy bed, Its installed and ready to use, just in time for me to have to start on the nursery for the baby. The stain color came out perfect thanks again for your time and effort, see pics attached.

Telling everyone about it and where I got it so hopefully it will help you business out some more too.” One of the pictures above shows the bed in the room next to the matching piece
