Barn Wood Murphy Bed

Jul 19, 2013

Here’s a murphy bed we designed similar to our sliding doors that we make. This was a concept/prototype that we came up with for one of our creative customers, looking to make use of a small space in his guest quarters. This simple steel and plywood frame is flat black and the outside is decorated with a mixed reclaimed barn wood facade. It also has a light coat of lacquer to seal up the barn wood. We added steel loops on the side for the nylon straps to hold the mattress down. It’s a very inventive use of the space and the materials. Definitely fun to build! Looking forward to designing some other murphy setups soon.
