  1. Turned Bedroom into play room

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 25th 2016

    After installing the murphy bed system and installing a few cabinets our room was transformed from a bedroom to a play room for the grand kids.

  2. Exactly what I needed

    Posted by bob del on Nov 14th 2016

    The bed frame is exactly as described. The cabinet directions give you everything you need to construct the cabinet, but this project is for experienced DIY'ers. Follow the plans exactly, there is no room for error in the measurements. All in all I am very pleased with the results.

Product Description

For those who want to build their own Panel-Bed-Style Murphy Bed, with a Steel Frame. The Panel Bed Frame Kit Steel Balance Lift Mechanism, Springs, and Legs as the DIY Kit, but adds the Steel Bed Frame, saving you from having to build your own frame from your own wood. The photos show what CAN BE built, using our Panel Bed Frame Kit. You get to source and choose the style of 3/4"-thick wood you'll use to build the cabinet surround and face panels.

The Panel Bed Frame Kit allows you to build a Murphy Bed that has no doors to open, but instead has a face panel that folds down, becoming the bottom of the bed.

If you'd like us to manufacture all the wood parts, too, click here to look at our Metro Panel Bed.
