I decided to make a wall bed (Murphy bed) to save space and double as an office. This is for a full size bed.
2x8 - 12 ft (If I did it again I would have gotten 2x10)
2x4 - 10 ft
8in gate hinges - 2
Size 14 screws for gate - 8
Size 14 bolts and nuts - 2
3" screws
A full size bunk bed frame

Step 1: Cut Board And Drill To Wall

Cut the 2x8 into 2 60" pieces. Drill them together and cut two more pieces to make supports. Then drill the back to the wall
<p>Hey, this looks awesome! I'm moving into a new apartment soon and would love to make something like this. Do you think there's some way to make a free-standing version of this and add a board or something on the base of the bed so that when it's up, I can put posters on it or something? I can't make any holes in the wall :/</p>
<p>I love your idea a lot, I need to know what that metal bar bed frame is, likwe what is it called? the metal base. Where can I get one like yours what should i look up online for the metal bar base frame?</p>
Hi jumper435,<br>The base was actually the bottom of a bunk bed that had a full size frame on bottom and twin on top. I bought the whole bunk bed from a furniture store. <br><br>You could also build a wood frame or maybe some plumbing pipes that can be screwed together. <br><br>Best of luck!
Simple n clear I like this idea
Nice job! Awesome space saving idea :)
