Home projects seem to be few and far between since work has been so amazingly busy, but we were able to finish this lovely Murphy Bed with a hardware kit from Rockler, a little elbow grease, and a LOT of help from my mother in law cutting boards and assembling pieces!! We chose Seagull Gray and Snow White milk paints from General Finishes to help integrate this piece into our guest bedroom. There were SO MANY tiny pieces of trim that I individually painted that I think next time we might try painting them with a coat or two as full boards before cutting them apart and then just doing final coats to make sure we got all of the sides and edges.
It looks like I managed to not get a great "before" photo on this one (still looking - I could swear I had one!), but just imagine a giant light-colored unfinished wood box, because that's pretty much what it looked like before the paint and trim :)
