Tidy Tuesday - A blanket chest

Finished blanket chest...holding two comforters, two throws and two blankets!
My family loves to cuddle up with blankets while sitting in the living room, watching tv or reading books.  This is all fine and dandy but it also means various blankets strewn all over the room. I needed a place to contain them.  And then I got an idea...we have two ottomans and really only use one.  What if I converted one of the ottomans into a blanket chest?  I could do that.

Before - worn out ottoman

Easy job...remove old base

Remove old side boards have no support.  Rescrew boards and position new base.

Interior needs restaining.  Done.  Let dry and fill with blankets!
