This is a Sideways or Horizontal murphy bed using the Create-a-bed mechanism. It is modeled off the Vertical style of my Contempo Murphy Bed. It is just a plain murphy bed with clean lines. I also added a real simple top and bottom molding.

Wood: Maple

Stain: Gunstock by Minwax

Hardware: Create-a-bed

Built in: April 2013

Good looking Murphy bed. I know very well the amount of work that went into building it as I recently posted the one I completed. Create-A-Bed was very helpful with questions I had.

Awesome bed.Murphy wall beds are an excellent solution for housing guests when space is limited.The most important factor to consider when buying a Murphy Bed is the quality of the bed.The beauty of the Murphy bed is that it frees up so much space once closed.
