I don't know what day we're on with this whole murphy bed project that we got from Knock Off Wood. It's going remarkably well considering neither my husband nor I know what we're doing. I always feel fairly confident that if I have instructions I can do most anything. But I tend to like to be mentored along. I'm just a social kinda gal.


There was a little "adjusting" for a couple short cuts we made. (It was a typo on the cut list but Ana corrected it - so don't worry) We decided against some hinges that we got and replaced them with a standard piano hinge. There was just a little less confusion going that route.


Kurt got a chance to use his new nail gun and compressor. If he thought about it he would have done the Tim Taylor grunt but the giddy look on his face when he shot the first few nails??!?! PRICELESS.


This is the cabinet that will be attached to the wall that the mattress will be stored in. Yup, it's taking shape. And just in case you were wondering. I have been in the garage with him. Cheering him on, reading the instructions, brainstorming questions... and the monkeys encourage him too...


My mom and sister will be arriving on Wednesday so it would be ideal to get this thing done... now? Nothing like waiting to the last minute to complete a project, huh? Yeeash.
