  • Brilliant work.
    By ChefEvans, on March 27, 2017

  • This is, as ChefEvans has said, brilliant. Are plans or diagrams available? Is it Double or Queen? Is the mattress stored in the 'headboard' a futon cushion, foam pad or an actual mattress? If info is available, please let me know. My wife despises Murphy beds, but I envision this as an upright piano to disguise it further. Too cool!!

    • Yes shoot me your email and I can get you some stuff.
      By Croberts6210, on March 28, 2017


  • Ok, so no plans. Do you have some basic information, such as: Sketches / rough drawings? Overall Dimensions? Size of casters and how many used? Size of hinges and how many? What is the bed size (full or queen) and the mattress that was used (futon, foam pad, regular coil)? Anything would be helpful in getting my plans drawn up. John

  • Please post a link to download a materials list and measurements. I assume your plans can be adjusted to the size of the bed you want. My email is jim7fl at gmx.com, obvious without the spaces in it.

  • Amazing! What an ingenious solution. The mattress storage in the headboard is truly a stroke of genius.

    • Thanks Ryobi! The support is much appreciated!
      By Croberts6210, on March 28, 2017

  • What a unique and awesome design. Nice work. I especially like how you made room for the mattress and bedding in the back. Is this mattress that is stored in the back full size, or some type of padding on a roll?
