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 😉

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!…

My little brother has been in need of a new nightstand for a while now, but he doesn’t have a ton of room in his bedroom. So he recently asked for a custom piece to fit the space! He gave me some dimensions and requested a large drawer for storage. Other than that, the rest was up to me!

How to Refurbish a Dresser

How to Refurbish an IKEA Dresser

Hi all! With this new baby on the way, I started thinking we’re probably going to need a place for diaper changing as well as a place to keep new baby’s clothes! I did quite a bit of research into changing tables vs dressers and decided to go the dresser route. We don’t have a ton of space in what will be the baby room. It’s currently the “catch-all” room – full of super valuable items random stuff. Kinda like a “junk drawer” (other people have those right?) … except this is the whole room.

But alas, I digress.

Anyways, the dresser is the most compact way to store baby items and have a changing area in the small space. Plus, as baby gets older he’ll already have his very own dresser! Score.
