DIY Murphy bed / wall bed with hardware kit & DIY LED lights

Bedroom, DIY, Furniture

The 200 ft2 rental studio apartment I’m working on needed a Murphy bed so I built one with an industrial inspired interior complete with lighting. I did it using basic hand tools (no table saw or track saw), and without a workshop or fancy woodworking tools. It’s only the start for this studio apartment, lots more projects to come!

My Murphy bed hardware kit is from and here’s some of the handy tools and supplies I used to build this Murphy Bed: 

WORX portable work bench

WORX cordless circular saw

Mini clamps

Carpenter square

Speed square

Veneer edge trimmer



Wood edging – 250 ft for $28

Stain (Briarsmoke)

Inside color: BEHR Butter Rum
