I took my Murphy bed and changed the face to resemble a locker. I’ve done this before in the baseball style. The name plates unlock it from the cabinet and it opens into bed.

I use the Create-a-bed system, which is very easy to use.

The Finish
The finish that I use is a lacquer system that is real durable. I have access to all the true team colors and get them custom matched. Most of the lettering is vinyl but I did airbrush some of it.
