This is a couple Murphy beds that were completed 12-23-2008. I built them for my two daughters. I designed it to cover an entire wall. The two beds are separated by a desk with shelves. Each of the beds and the desk all have a three stage touch sensor lights for reading or to be used as a night light. The lights over the bed I added a mercury switch to shut the lights off when the bed is in the up position.

I finished it in just a natural maple with two coats of pre-cat lacquer to match a chest and a converted changing table that I built before.

I gave this to them on Christmas but will not be able to install it until we paint the room, which should be New Years day.

That is a fine looking set of Murphy beds. Nice details. Bet the girls were really happy.

Well done.Chris. It solves a problem with the girls as well. Now they can work, play and sleep all in the same room.
