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.

DIY Murphy Bed Kit Contents

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.

Our DIY Kit includes what you need to get started building your own Panel Bed System:

  • Build Your Cabinet: Following our free instructions, your DIY Kit mounts to your cabinet made of 3/4" thick material, which mounts onto your wall, at the top of the cabinet. Note: no cabinetry or wood frame parts are included in this kit. For a bed-in-a-cabinet system, click here.
  • 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 or Horizontal Mount: Mount your Bed horizontally, with the included segmented leg rod.
  • In stock item: All of our Frame and DIY kits ships free from our warehouse in St Augustine, FL, within 5 business days, via FedEx ground (which takes 3-7 business days).
  • Lifetime Warranty: Murphy Bed Depot has the best warranty money can buy on all of our Murphy Bed mechanisms and frames: A Lifetime Warranty! If you need any parts replaced because of manufacturer defect, we will ship you a replacement part quickly, at our cost. 

No Cabinetry or Wood Parts are Included in this Kit

Do-it-yourself (DIY): All Murphy Bed Depot Frame and DIY kits come with all the hardware you need for the frame itself, making your assembly very do-able with some basic hand tools.

We Care About Your Safety: We've designed, tested, re-designed, and re-proven our products to make them as safe as possible for you and your guests to use.

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.
