Building a Murphy Bed for Under $275!

If you’ve been researching murphy beds and haven’t given up yet because they are so expensive, then you will be happy to find out that the Moddi murphy bed can be built for under $275 total! Not just the mechanism, the entire bed, not including the mattress, sorry. And the plans include tips on how to save an additional $100 if you want to put in a little more effort. That’s the cheapest murphy bed available!


A Murphy Bed For the Beginner “Do-It-Yourself-er”

If you’re an avid “Do-it-Yourself-er,” you probably own a table saw, chop saw and an electric sander. You also know how to finish and stain wood. And you have a big work shop. If this sounds like you, there are many murphy bed plans available for you. But if your like me and the only power tool you own is a drill; the only thing you’ve ever stained is your shirt; you live in a small condo or apartment and your living room is also your workshop; then the Moddi murphy bed is better option. And for you Bob Villa types, you can build a Moddi murphy bed and save even more money than you thought you would save with those other plans. But don’t take my word for it, here are some of the links to the other sites:








Easy to Buy Off the Shelf Parts

The Moddi murphy bed is made of parts you can buy at any hardware store and Ikea. That means no expensive murphy bed mechanism needed. Plus, Ikea delivers, most of the other parts can be found on one isle at Home Depot. The only two parts that are purchased from a machine parts distributor. I will include the link to their site. And surprisingly, they have great customer service and overnight delivery.

What About the Mechanism?

Mechanism is a fancy word for  “hydraulic dampers, latch, legs and axle hinge.” So basically, the moddi murphy bed has it’s own “mechanism.”

No Wood Shop No Mess

Anyone who has built furniture knows how messy it can be. If you don’t have a shop to build it in, expect to mask off your room with a lot of plastic and tape. But the saw dust will still take months to clean up. The Moddi murphy bed can be assemble in the smallest of rooms without the strong smell of stain and glue. Yes there’s a little dust from the holes you have to drill, but nothing a little handy-vac can’t handle.


Perfect for the Studio Apartment

If you live in small apartment and need more space. A murphy bed is a great option. Unlike hide-a-way beds that take up floor space, a murphy bed folds up and away. Did I mention that it is the cheapest murphy bed available!


Multi-purpose Rooms

For those of you that just need more space, the Moddi murphy bed can turn any room into a guest room, without taking up valuable floor space.


The Only Floating Murphy Bed Available

The Moddi murphy bed is attached to the wall with the a french cleat. A french cleat is a technique cabinet makers prefer when installing cabinets because it’s an easy way to mount something big and bulky. But the coolest thing about a french cleat mounted Moddi murphy bed is that when it is folded up and away, it’s not touching the floor, leaving more room for other things!


Customize Your Moddi

For those of you clever and creative types, you can customize your Moddi murphy bed and even build the Moddi murphy bed for under $150.00. I know for a fact that with a little more effort the Moddi murphy bed can be built for under $100. I included these tips if you are willing to put in a little more work.
