We put together a more traditional Murphy bed about three years ago, but this Lori bed is a piece of cake by comparison. We purchased the unfinished horizontal queen, and stained/polyurethaned the wood to match the rustic decor of our pueblo-revival style home. We two senior citizens took a leisurely approach and put the bed together over the course of three evenings. We were short a couple screws for the mattress platform, but we were able to find suitable substitutes at Ace Hardware. Helpful hint #1: Countersink the screws in the platform to avoid the screw heads tearing up the bottom of your mattress. The only frustration involved the supplied drill bit used for making the frame. It is two sizes too small for some of the tasks, such as creating holes that allow the frame pieces to snug up to each other when you screw them together. The screw must pass through the first piece cleanly, thus only biting into the attaching piece (woodworking 101). If this isn't done, the screws will actually cause the two boards to pull apart when you attempt to attach them to each other. Get yourself a bit two sizes larger than the one supplied, and you'll be golden. That same supplied bit is also too short for other tasks along the way, so it would have been nice if it were a tad longer. But these are minor things that were easily overcome with a little Yankee ingenuity. Overall, we had a satisfactory outcome, and the bed is perfect for our needs in an occasionally-used guestroom.
I'm a 60-year-old woman, fit but no Wonder Woman, and I put the Lori Wall Bed together myself. Got some help from my husband with the heavy repositioning and with putting on the latches, but otherwise it was just me and my cordless drill. The video was a huge help. I watched it all the way through first, and then in parts as I built the bed. The hardware is clearly packaged and labeled. They send everything you need. It took me two days to put it together, mostly because I had to recharge the drill. Then I painted it white. If I were doing it again, I would paint the pieces first. I am very pleased with how it turned out. The website recommends an innerspring mattress, but I did a lot of research and found a queen gel/memory foam bed-in-a-box that weighs far less than most innerspring mattresses. I also got some beautiful wall decals to add art to the space above the mattress. Overall, it looks great! I'm having my first guests in about two weeks, and can't wait to impress them!
After a long search for a good looking murphy bed, I am so happy we came across Lori wall beds! It looks amazing and we love the simplicity of it. The company was also great to work with through the ordering process and answered all of my questions promptly. After the bed was delivered, we noticed the box had a dinged corner and there was minor damage to a corner of the boards, and they were great to work with in resolving the issue. The bed was fairly easy to put together and we are so happy with our purchase. I think their products are so great that I emailed them after we received the bed and ask that they further develop a line of coordinating wall storage closets because I would want to order those too!
I am very happy with the Lori Wall Bed. I purchased the pre-cut kit and everything fit perfectly. I added wood glue in addition to screws. I also added 3/4 plywood trim boards to frame in the front panel. This adds stiffness and also hides the seems. Finally I opted for lockable latches for added safety. This bed will last for years! Thank you.
Great alternative to spending $$$$ on particle board murphy bed. Perfect DIY project and very comfortable and easy to use. Saved us so much money making it ourselves. Directions were simple to follow and finished product looks great! Looking forward to hosting lots of company.
The Lori bed is awesome! It’s the perfect fit for me guest room/office/exercise room! The plans and YouTube video were very helpful, only thing I would recommend would be to wear gloves when putting it together. I also love the quick shipping, the boxing, and the how it’s a bookshelf when we don’t need the bed. The only issue I had was when my dogs realized they lost their queen size dog bed while I worked! I highly recommend this bed and this company. Thanks!
