I have a small house and not to much room. When I get ( my mother) visitors I like to have my house picked up and looking good. I came up with the pet Murphy Bed. I bought a dog bed and built my cabinet doors with a box the size of the dog bed first. Then I built a cabinet around the sized of the door/dog bed. I used cherry wood. I also attached cabinet to wall for security so that the cabinet would not close onto my pet in case he was rough housing.
