When I saw this tutorial I knew I had to have one of these. I have so many blankets taking up precious space in my linen closet and Armoire…nothing else will fit into either one of them. Do you have this problem?
We are very conscious about the amount of “stuff” we keep, and make an effort to clean out our closets every spring and fall, throwing out or donating clothes and decor that we have collected and no longer need. But despite that, we still have quite a few things we aren’t willing or ready to part with.
For me, a big part of that is home decor items, in particular throws and pillows. You’ve probably noticed that a new blanket or pillow will sneak it’s way into your home, and because of that, my collection has grown and they tend to take up a lot of space when we’re not using them.
So we decided to switch out the bench that was at the foot of our bed, and thought a DIY blanket storage chest would be perfect. I painted ours with chalk paint and distressed it, giving it a shabby chic look and I love it!
