NanoPoblano2020: Day 5

Meet Murphy. He’s our new bed. When we aren’t using him, he lives nestled up near the wall, waiting to be pulled back down again.

You see, according to the town hall records, the 624 sqft condo that we live in is a one bedroom. But those records lie. The “bedroom” might fit a full/double bed, but that’s all it would fit.

It would be a room with a bed in it and nothing else.

We are currently using the “bedroom” as closet and semi-office space with some plants and decorations thrown in. The very first picture I posted for this year’s NanoPoblano was of a decoration hanging off the barn doors that can close off that room.

So, instead of sleeping in the “bedroom”, we use Murphy who lives out in our main living space. (We call it the Bliving Room… Bedroom+Living Room= Bliving Room) Murphy has been a good bed so far. I’m especially grateful that he hasn’t tried to eat us even once…

    1. Thank you! Homey and warm (with a bit of quirkiness thrown inπŸ˜‰) are exactly what I strive for in my home.
      I will admit that I was genuinely terrified that the Murphy Bed was going to close up with me still inside it at first, but it has proven to be stable and reliable.

    1. So funny story, my Mom and Dad were visiting immediately after we moved (we had been living with them, so they were still part of our bubble at that point) and Dad saw the bed closed up and asked, “So, is this Murphy?” and it took me a second to realize what he was asking because “Murphy” for “Murphy Bed”. 🀣 I decided why not just stick with the name.

  1. I’ve always wanted a Murphy bed. They’re just so cool. I remember going on my first cruise and seeing how the kitchen all folded up into the walls and thinking– why isn’t everything like this?! πŸ™‚ I love the quilt, too!

    1. I thought it was really cool and intimidating all at the same time. I got used to it pretty quickly though.
      A kitchen that folds up into the walls? That sounds awesome! I’ve never been on a cruise, so I’ve never seen anything like that before.
      And thank you! I’m glad that it lived up to the pictures online. The colors just make me so happy!
