Chalkboard Murphy Bed

This is a Murphy bed that was built as a request from a customer. It has a chalkboard front and pegboard sides. The front is basically my normal Alpine style with some chalkboard paint and a tray for the chalk.

When building the pegboard side I just enclosed the peg board in a frame, similar to a picture frame with a groove cut in the back. While assembling it I covered the cork board with newspaper. This way went I sprayed the finish I didn’t have to worry about taping off. It saved a lot of time. I just had to remove the paper when I was finished.

Normand, also to make it easier to move around, the lower back has a cutout to fit around the base molding. This way it is a totally temporary installition.
