“I just wanted to take a moment to compliment you on your Easy DIY Murphy Bed Kit. Before ordering the kit, I had some questions that you quickly and professionally addressed. Upon ordering, the kit was shipped out immediately and arrived promptly for assembly.
I was very pleased with the quality of the components. The guides and video were both clear and concise – they made for an easy build. I am very impressed by the smooth operation of the mechanism – it feels very solid and secure. Based on the quality of the finished bed and the interest it has generated, I am sure this won’t be my only Easy DIY Murphy Bed project..”

Hi Mike, So nearly a year to the day I finally got around to finishing and installing the Murphy beds. As you can see from the pictures I have stacked the two beds into a bunk bed configuration. I re-enforced the cabinet walls and the wall bracing. I used steel cable secured to the rafters in the attic to support the upper bunk bed frame, with anchor bolts through the leg brackets which I bored out to accommodate the bolts.
I used a maple veneer 3/4 inch plywood for the construction. I built a closet along the side of the beds for storing the upper bunk bed rail and ladder. We are very pleased with the end product.

HI there, I submitted a review of your kit – I would have been glad to even without the refund by the way – but there was no way I could see to upload photos during the review process. I’ve attached two for what it’s worth.
I appreciate the quality of your product very much, Mike. Thank you!

The easy instructions and video guide made this project very doable for an amateur woodworker like me. This was so successful that I will be building a second unit in our other spare room which doubles as a study – gives way more flexibility.
Thumbs up for the designers of the mechanism – works fantastically

The order was delivered extremely fast with clear instructions and easy assembly.
Please find attached the final result for both the murphy bed I also bought from you and the desk.

Had a great time building this project. With all the things going on right now, quarantine. Having to stay home, was a great way to take my mind off things. I have a small camp with not a lot of room for extra beds. This was a perfect addition to the camp. I’m going to order a horizontal single. This will be awesome if the boys want to come for a fish or a hunt when the covid 19 is all over.

Hi Mike, I’m finished and it turned out well. Great info and instructions and I actually had all the lumber purchased and cut before the hardware arrived. As you can see from the photos I had to do a little change to the cabinet sides and top to accommodate the ledge in our basement suite wall. I’m totally happy with everything that transpired throughout the project.

Thanks for reaching out with support. The videos from your website were very useful. I will take your offer to get a $40 refund. Please see the attached photos. I finished and installed the bed over the weekend. I stained it, so that process took me a few more days. My workstation was outside on my deck, so there were days I could not work.

Hello Mike, We are feeling somewhat accomplished! Neither my husband or myself have EVER built anything out of wood (e are both in our 60’s). We decided to try this Easy DIY Murphy bed and well… we think it turned out rather nicely. We had no fancy equipment or workshop. We had only one rule and that was – when the arguments start – we quit for the day. It took us just short of 3 weeks lol ? Now I have space to set up a craft room and still have a bed for guests!
To qualify the time frame we did several coats of paint and polyurethane finish before assembling so that took up a good part of the 3-week time frame. We were very impressed with the instructions and watched the videos and then looked at them again if we questioned what to do next. We made a couple of cutting errors – one we easily corrected on the side rails – but the second, plywood on the frame, we cut a little too narrow. It shouldn’t show or matter under the mattress. We added 1/4” trim on the face panels to match the doors and closets in our house. We would highly recommend the Easy DIY Murphy Bed. We posted our accomplishment on FB and have already had 2 friends ask for the website!

Hi Mike and Nadia,
I hope that you are staying safe and well. I have finally completed the murphy bed and installed it in a basement bedroom. The bedroom is only 10 X 11 feet. And to top it off the stairway is short and only 60 inches clearance. I cut wood for the unit out in my detached garage when it was -20C (here out west, Alberta). When it warmed up, I glued and screwed all of the pieces and stained the unit out in the garage. Then I had to disassemble it to bring it into the house and into the basement bedroom. This was because it would not fit down the stairs. I then had to reassemble the unit in the bedroom. The bedroom is quite small not allowing many places to work this was a challenge for me. But I have finally finished the project and my wife is happy because she can use the room for a sewing room and if we have guests there is a room for them to stay. I really enjoyed your project. Your instructions are very easy to follow along with the accompanying illustrations to help with the explanation instructions. Thank you folks very much. Stay healthy.
