I’ve been eyeing murphy beds for a while and really want to build one. Seen a few on Craigslist but the owners still want a lot.

They arent cheap to build either unless you do the Moddi Bed Ikea plan or Lori plan which both run around $300.

My question to you all…

For $160 I can buy a full size 20 year Murphy Bed frame, intact and functional. Is that worth it? I offered $100 and seller said no. I would then build a box with a wood floor, screw the box to the wall and then screw the frame to the floor of the box.

Just curious if for $160 its worth it as many of the DIY kits are $250 for the hardware.

Thanks

Hello..

I must say that if you are looking forward to the murphy bed then must go for the ikea as they are cheap and also easy installation is there. In your budget it will definitely goes good.

Have your say...
