You Can Build A Secret Murphy Bar To Store Your Secret Stash

You've heard of Murphy beds before. You know, those semi-scary beds that pull down from the wall? I'm not sure how people can sleep tight in those things without worrying that the thing might fold up on them in the middle of the night!

While Murphy beds might be a little frightening, Murphy bars, on the other hand, are pure design genius.

At first glance, this looks like a sleek modern hanging wall shelf.

However, this is like a real life magical wardrobe from The Chronicles of Narnia.

The little shelving unit folds down to reveal a magical hidden bar.

Redditor thehow2dad posted his creation much to the amazement of others.

Not only can you hide your secret stash in the secret compartment, but you can also use the folded down piece as a little bar top to enjoy a cheeky cocktail (or a few).

You also don't have to move your shelving decoration aside. It'll still hang perfectly right below the tabletop, as long as you're careful when folding it down.

While this Murphy bar is genius to keep sneaky spouses and roommates out of your favorite spirits, it's also perfect for small spaces that don't have enough room for a bar area.

If you're interested in making your very own sneaky Narnia bar, you can find all the steps you need here, or watch his detailed YouTube video to follow right along.

These also work great outdoors for those who pretty much live on their back patio during the nice weather seasons, but don't have the space for a full bar and patio set.
