GUEST (BED) HIDE­AWAY

Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

Erin’s idea for a Mur­phy bed, right, in her stu­dio was a no-brainer to avoid overnight guests crash­ing on the sofa. Af­ter in­stalling the bed (which came in 1 mil­lion pieces, Erin jokes), she and Ken added IKEA shelves to one side for a builtin vibe and to store guest room sun­dries. Erin re­cently added the wall-mounted bol­sters to cre­ate a headboard for the bed and to nar­row the gap be­tween the wall and mat­tress. Other homey touches in­clude the macramé wall hang­ing made by friend and fel­low blog­ger Sara Ban­ner, and a wood bead gar­land and block-print pil­low, both of which Erin made.

FAUX-LEATHER STRAPS AT­TACHED TO THE WALL BY SCREWS CAN BE UNHOOKED SO THE BOL­STERS SLIDE OUT WHEN THE BED ISPULLED UP.
