We finally have what I would consider a Tiny staple. A bed that hides away. We decided to do a Murphy's bed kit, and honestly it took me about 6 months to finally finish it. Somehow the awesome curtains in the background came first. I took a few days off, and had to decline a paintball party at a friends house, but with focus I got it done. It is made out of maple and was to heavy for the wife and I to carry it into the house from the backyard where I did most of the assembly. So we put down some towels and slid it in to the house. The DIY kit that we used has strong enough pistons though that even our 9 year old daughter can put it up. The House feels huge without a mattress in the living room.
