I followed most of the measurements with the Murphy bed with added dimensions for a full sized bed. I also added a shelf to provide support while the bed is down since I brought the platform off the floor. The table is also hinged to the bed platform so that it folds up and locks in place for a center support for the bed.

What an awesome project! Love how the added shelf at the top creates the "legs" at the end of the bed when it is lowered (looks like it keeps the bed about 4" off the floor?). Are those window sash locks for closure? Those will keep it in place nice and tight when it's closed. The fold down desk is brilliant also, and love the legs and the colors!
