In the coming weeks, I’ll be finishing the Murphy bed. Today I move the bed back into the van; it’s time to take some final measurements and add the legs.
I use a similar pivot mechanism on both legs and some magnets to keep the legs in place when the bed is folded up. The dark Formica on the legs, will hide them from view. After finishing up the legs, I will continue to apply Formica on most of the remainder of the Murphy bed and then install the upper cabinets above the bed.
