Dark Walnut Shaker Blanket Chest

My sister was visiting recently and noticed the storage chest I built for our living room last spring. She’s been in need of more storage space at her place and loved the chest, so I volunteered to build her one!

It’s similar to our storage chest but with slightly different details in order to match her home decor. Plus, I wanted to try something new!

So here it is! Blanket chest #3 for Bitterroot DIY and a perfect Christmas present for my sister!…

We were out visiting my family the other weekend when my mom started discussing all her plans for updating and improving my childhood home. Let me tell ya, she’s got some great ideas up her sleeves! As she was going over all the updates for the master bedroom, she happened to offhandedly mention that she’s been shopping around for a blanket chest …

Well ……

So, about a year ago I promised Joseph I’d build us a set of matching nightstands …

They were supposed to be my second build.

No matter.

I’m only 1 year behind.

I guess I can’t complain too much next time I ask him to do something and he takes a year to get around to it …

Ahhhh, marriage 😉

I have to be honest here: When I first made the lid for my blanket chest, I messed up the dimensions and it ended up a little small. But it was already finished and perfect and wonderful before I discovered the mistake … oops …

So I attached it to the chest anyways and just moved on with my life ……

Looking to give your dining room set a little face-lift? Look no further, friends!

I found this old dining room set on Craigslist and thought it’d be fun to try my hand at a flip job … it was definitely more work than I anticipated … as per usual 😉 but I’m stoked about the final result!…

How to Reupholster a Chair

Hey all! Things have been a little quiet around Bitterroot DIY lately due to the new addition to the family, but I’m picking it back up again this week!

A short aside: Mr. Weston Michael Sattler joined us on August 12 at 5:35pm and has completely flipped our lives upside-down. The best sort of upside-down 🙂

After recovering from the pregnancy and birth, I finally completed the dining table and chairs flip that I hinted at before Weston. So I’ve got three new posts coming your way, starting with how to reupholster a chair!…

Ever since we moved into our townhouse, we’ve been slowly adding to our furniture collection. One of the biggest necessities has been more storage space. In the living room, we’ve been just piling nicely folding blankets and leaving them out on the couch. It works, but we were ready for a more organized space. So I decided to make the blankets their very own home – the DIY storage chest.

Finally a place for all that fluffy blanket goodness!…

DIY Nursery Decor

DIY Wood Nursery Decor

When I started looking for decor for the new baby nursery, I did what anyone would do – headed to Pinterest for inspiration! There are so many adorable ideas out there, but one of my favorites was a wooden plaque with a simple quote and image. I thought about just purchasing it, but then decided I wanted to make a special one for my new little boy 🙂

And I knew exactly what to write … that never happens for me.
