Need some extra space for visiting family members? This DIY Murphy bed is the answer. See how easily you can build one in just two days!
One of the easiest ways to create room in your home for guests is with a Murphy bed. This space-saving piece of furniture is installed against a wall and looks like a large cabinet when not in use. Then it pulls down to reveal a bed. Murphy beds are often found in basements but can be installed anywhere there is available wall and floor space, like a home office or hobby room. We purchased a Murphy bed hardware kit online, then built the frame with lumber from our local hardware store. Follow our instructions below to see how you can build a Murphy bed in just one weekend.
