Murphy Bed Make-Over

We bought a Murphy Bed off Craigslist last fall.  I had been look for quite some time but nothing ever seemed to work out.  It just happened that the bed we found was really good quality but not so much in our taste of décor.  But it was a $4,000 bed that we scored for $1200.  With Dad and Mom's help, we were able to get it in Dallas and back home and set up.  We left it in its Modern style for the last nine months.



And then we basically had two weeks left until Drew was to come and we decided we might should get to fixing it up if we were ever going to get it done.  Our first step was to use the beadboard wall paper on the drawer faces and on the front of the bed.  It went really well and was so much easier to do than standard wood beadboard.


Next Keith added the trim work on top of the beadboard...


Finally he worked on lightly sanding the remaining wood exposed parts to get the gloss off of it and used a bonding primer before painting it all with latex epoxy that matched the trim work, so it would look more like a built in.


 
The bedding is pretty basic, but it does the job.  We added some black and white pictures to the wall.


Finally we added the hardware and called it good!  It turned out really well and looks so much better than it did in its previous modern life. 

 
Once the Murphy Bed was made over the rest of the nursery easily came together.  All we really lack is wall decor and that will just have to wait for Drew to get here!  :)
