Reader Rebecca tipped us off to the Moddi Murphy Bed Kit, and frankly, we're surprised we haven't seen it before! Moddi sells instructions to create your own wall-mounted Murphy bed with inexpensive parts from IKEA and a hardware store. The best thing is that a twin Murphy bed can be yours for under $275 and a little work... In addition to a twin size (shown above), there are also instructions for a Full/Double size Murphy bed. While the instructions will cost you $8, Moddi publishes a free parts list on their website. Some of the key parts include multiple LACK side tables, a LILLEHAMMER bed frame, and SULTAN LADDE bed slats. With the current seven color choices with the LACK units, there is a lot of room for customization and creativity. Here is what a full-sized Moddi Murphy bed looks like when it's folded up:
Thanks for the tip, Rebecca! If any readers have built their own Moddi Murphy beds, we've love to see pictures! (The gallery at Moddi is not currently available.) Via: IKEA Hacker.
