This is the murphy bed I made using ana's plans and making the bed legs when it's down and a shelf when it's up!  This was to keep the bed off the floor.  Thanks again Ana

Hi, I am hanging my bed off the floor too. Can you tell me what kind of hinge you used and a photo of how you attached them? Mine is not turning out right. Thank you

Hi Ana!  I love the Murphy bed and feel like it is just what I need for my new home.  I have sold my family home of 30 years and am moving closer to the grandchildren.  Looking at buying a 1905 home that is less than 1/2 the size of my old home.  I am 63 and most of my friends are in the same age range.  If they come to visit, I need a bed that's a little higher off the floor.  I don't really want to hang the bed off the floor as shown in some of these, but instead like the look of a cabinet.  However, I was thinking of putting doors on it so we could pull the bed down with fold out legs of some sort.  Any suggestions?
