I’m Richard Abbey, with Lift & Stor Beds, here to show you our do-it-yourself wall bed kit, to create your wall bed. This particular bed here that we’ve created is an unfinished bed that’s ready to paint. But I could show you the hardware mechanism that’s in the kit that you can get at storagebeds.com. This kit uses a spring mechanism and It’s all-metal construction. And there’s a metal box around your mattress. So, the kit includes everything that you see here, except for the wood. You would build your bed yourself. And this bed is real springy because there’s no mattress in it. With a mattress, it would go down nice and easy. But it includes all the black metal hardware that you can see that goes around the mattress, the center stiffeners, the roll over leg, as well as the two-side spring mechanisms. And those are all available at storagebeds.com.
You have any specific questions about it, you can call us at 480-380-8018. And, I’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have. And, if you have some moderate woodworking skills, this is something that you can build. The kit comes with instructions on how to cut out all the material for the storage or for the wall bed. And, how to assemble it, how to put the hardware on. And anyone with moderate to advanced woodworking skills, it’s a good, easy build. And it gives you some extra storage in your room. So, if you have any questions, visit us on our website at storagebeds.com.
Custom Built Murphy Library Bed By Lift & Stor Beds
This is our custom-built murphy library bed. We build these custom in Arizona. And this is a Murphy bed hidden behind some book cases and Jennifer will demonstrate how the bed opens. The swinging book cases are around pivot mechanisms that swing easily with just your fingers, and then the Murphy bed folds down. This is a queen-size bed, and again this is custom-built here in Arizona. And this particular unit does not have any side cabinets, but side cabinets can be added to the outside with either a wardrobe cabinet or a book case shelving. So, now we’ll put it back up, and the book cases will hide the bed. We have customers that have put this in their formal living room or in a library where they wanted to have a display for books and still have a guest room available.
Our beds are designed to be very easy to open. You just have to give it a start, then the shocks take the work for you. We use two 95 pounds of pressure shocks for our queen-sized bed. For a double, we would use 80. Easy to open, little harder to close. That way you don’t have to worry about it coming down on you when you’re underneath the bed.
With the Lift & Stor storage beds you have almost 26 cubic feet of storage. We do not use any drawers or hardware since they take up more space. So, you actually gain a lot more storage than you would if you had drawers or doors. Very easy to open, a little harder to close. But you want it that way so that the bed doesn’t come down on you when you’re underneath it.
Lift & Stor beds are manufactured out of one-inch thick particle board on your base, three-quarter-inch on your top. We have nine different colors that you can choose from. All of our beds have black tops and they’re completely edge banding on the inside and rounded corners.

We also offer a full line of wall beds and storage beds. This is our Hidden bed. The nice thing about this bed is you don’t have to take any items off the surface of your desk. So as long as it’s not taller than 18-inches the items just pivot to the floor, and now you have your bed.
The Hidden bed itself is very easy to operate. It comes in a variety of finishes. Your only restriction is you can’t do a mattress over 11 inches. It comes in a queen and a double. The nice thing about the Hidden bed is you get two pieces of furniture in one. You have your desk during the day, and if you have company or if you’re using it for yourself, you just bring it down and you have your bed at night.
