Step two is all about side cabinets.

Make sure you pick the accessories and finishes for these items as well. Now you’re ready for the third and final step.

Once you put everything together you’ll see you’ve created Murphy beds that will look awesome in any room. They are great for the times you need more space, have guests, or just want that element of surprise.
