BLANKET CHESTS AND BOXES
These blanket chests and boxes are beautiful pieces of furniture that also serve a purpose!
Whether you're refurbishing or upcycling an older piece or building a new one from scratch, you're sure to find a blanket chest here that fits your decor!
Believe it or not, this rolling blanket storage box started off as an old set of bifold doors! By cutting the doors into sections, I was able to repurpose them into convenient storage for our bedroom!
This upholstered storage bench is perfect for hiding extra pillows and blankets at the foot of the bed! There's a beginner and an intermediate version of this build, depending on your skill level.
I love the simple, clean lines of this DIY storage chest! You could paint or stain it to fit any decor!
This storage ottoman looks like it came out of a furniture showroom! It's perfect for hiding an extra blanket in plain sight in your living room.
This cedar chest was a family heirloom that had seen better days. I love how she gave it a new look while keeping all the character of the inherited piece!
This oversized storage trunk doubles as a coffee table and it's large enough to store board games, pillows and blankets for a cozy night in!
Most coffee tables with storage require you to remove everything from the top so you can lift it up. Not this one! It features pull out drawers on both ends to keep everything accessible.
The diamond tufting on the top of this storage ottoman really takes it to the next level! The entire piece was upholstered in luxurious leather, and I never would have thought it was a DIY!
I had no idea what a flour cabinet was until I read this tutorial! It's been turned into the perfect blanket storage box!
The white stain of this storage trunk makes this large piece look light and airy!
I wish I could find beautiful chippy paint furniture like this when I go thrift shopping! I love how she added wheels to the bottom and the decorative piece on the front for extra bling.
HANGING BLANKET STORAGE
These hanging blanket storage ideas use little floor space by going vertical!
You can make this DIY blanket ladder without any power tools and less than $10 worth of lumber! It's perfect for those tight spaces where a storage bin or basket wouldn't fit.
Instead of wood, why not try copper? This copper pipe ladder is made with basic materials and would be easy for a beginner to make!
This blanket storage idea doesn't need any floor space at all! Just hang a strand of wooden beads on the wall and drape it with blankets!
I've seen these blanket racks at the thrift store before, but never knew what they were for! This piece looks great with a new coat of paint!
This blanket storage idea is like a coat rack for blankets! It's great for a spot that could use vertical storage but lacks wall space.
These baskets make blanket storage so easy! Just place one in the corner of the living room and toss them in!
This project is genius! She uses a laundry basket and covers it with rope for a budget version of those fancy rope baskets you see in the store!
This rope basket uses a similar technique, but the metallic ombre effect and fabric liner really makes it stand out!
Growing up, my mom would weave rag rugs on a loom. This storage basket uses inexpensive rag rugs from IKEA and repurposes them into blanket storage!
Going for the bohemian look? This ottoman made from burlap coffee sacks gives you the same style for way less, plus it opens up to store blankets and pillows!
Give an old basket a whole new look with a little paint!
Don’t want to make your own blanket storage? Try one of these inexpensive options instead!
