Hi Nick,

The Murphy bed is from California Closets as they were the only ones that would do a King size. I designed the mounting strategy and they helped install the TV. I used these for the Vesa mounts: https://www.mcmaster.com/#9232k14/=1653ulr with some fender washers and M6 bolts on the bed side and a board with a table saw groove to support the top of the screen when the bed is laying down. I've had my daughter bounce around on the bed a bit and it doesn't seem to disturb the TV much, but honestly, the mattress does most of the absorption. You could probably get away with solid mounts, but I'd still support the top of the screen like I did.

I like it. Thanks for the details. I likely won't be doing the TV on the murphy, but I am enthralled by the idea.

Two year followup, everything is still working great and I still love the solution.

That's good to hear. I ended up mounting my center channel on the bottom of mine. I put the bed up, lower the screen (acoustically transparent) and I'm in business.

This is an old picture, but I really like the setup.
