Mexican Country Murphy Bed
There has been many processes that we have gone through to get this cabinet to look this way. I haven't shown them all for boredom sake. So this is our Murphy Bed, we've made it from scratch. We ordered the mechanisms that make it lock, and go up and down. With the mechanisms they sent, they also give you directions on how to make a basic cabinet. Mostly it's pretty generic and we couldn't find anything that suited our style dealing with these kinds of beds. So we've pretty much devoted ourselves to researching Mexican country furniture and this is what we have come up with. It's not completely finished, it's about 90% done. It has a scalloping detail on the top still to be made and tonight we are picking up the mattress. (just a standard one). There are still strap hinges to be installed. I got them and the door pulls on Ebay for really killer deals. The next time I post about it, it should be completely finished. I will show you how it looks when the bed is down.
