    Looks like a perfect solutions for those that need a quest room. We have no overnight guest and no spare rooms. Having a design wall too is just icing on the cake. Great looking room.

    Fantastic idea! Hubby did a great job. Wish I had one in guest bedroom. Never enough floor space and no design wall.....this solves both issues.

    We ordered the mechanism and plans online from Rockler Woodworking. It's @$300. I have no affiliation with this company, but we researched our options and decided to go with this. We're very happy with it & the directions were easy to follow, per my husbands comments.

    He's not a finish carpenter? Looks pretty good to me! What a clever and ingenious idea. Congratulations to you both!

    I've talked to DH about a Murphy bed if we ever downsize and move for our retirement (not even close yet!). If you don't have guests often, I think it's a very smart solution to give you more space rather than a room sitting empty 50 weeks a year.

    Really a great idea, and he did a wonderful job of it. I love the quilt on the bed, and the strip on your design wall. It is so wonderful to have a design wall

    That is pure genius - you still have your sewing room, but also room for guests. Hubby did a great job.

    Me too!!!

    I repossessed my daughter's room and converted it back to my sewing room when she left for college. I had a sleeper sofa in there for when she would come visit. However like most sofa sleepers it was uncomfortable. I installed a Murphy Bed and they love it. It folds up out of the way and when closed, I have a design wall. For those of us who do not have a dedicated room and must share on occasion, it is wonderful.

    [QUOTE=himnherr;6050570]For the past 13 years I have shared my sewing space with our guest room. About 2 years ago I figured out that since we only have guests stay 2-3 times a year I could surely put that space to better use........."

    This is a fabulous idea! You could pull that down, take a quick nap and dream of quilts. How clever are you, said Yoda

    This is a wonderful idea. Now I am wondering if I can do that in my 2nd sewing room.
