Do It Yourself DIY Murphy Bed Kit

The DIY 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.

For those who want to build their entire bed frame from wood. The DIY Kit includes the same Steel Balance Lift Mechanism, Springs, and Legs as the Panel Bed Frame Kit, but without the Steel Bed Frame, allowing you to build your own frame from your own wood.

The photos show what CAN BE built, using our DIY Kit. You get to source and choose the style of 3/4"-thick wood you'll use to build the cabinet frame and face panels.

The DIY Kit is a Panel Bed Kit that allows you to build a Wall 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 Panel Bed Cabinets.

  • Lift and Lower: One set of steel Spring-Balance-Lift Mechanisms (SBLMs), which secure to the sides of your cabinet, to raise and lower the panel bed
  • Spring Loaded: 18 springs, to allow for various weight mattresses and face panels
  • Sturdy Feet: One pair of high-strength tubular 13" legs with a segmented leg-connector bar
  • Bring Your Mattress: The DIY Kit works with any mattress up to 11 inches in thickness (Mattress not included)

Vertical King

My Overall experience is fine., I am a professional woodworker. I noticed that the king bed cut sheets varied in proportion to the other bed sizes /stated mattress sizes. I adjusted my cut sheets to accommodate the variation. It worked out great. I had to also create a different scenario for the rod that connects the feet.(due to the expansion) My clients had purchased an 11” mattress and I also overlaid the door with a chevron wood pattern which effected the toe height and its distance from front . I also had to expand the box frame slightly. So, while I altered the design for the project requirements and a proper king mattress, the hardware worked great. Thanks Murphy Bed Depot.

Our experience was good. The only thing is I wish there had been templates for the screw holes in the side rail. That was difficult.
