Rustic Blanket Chest

Reclaimed barn wood, rusty hinges, and a simple build is all it takes to make this lovely, rustic blanket chest.

I started with a nice 3x3 piece of wood.  I knew it would make great legs for a piece.  I cut it into 4 equal lengths and went from there in deciding what to build.  After attaching 4 sides I decided on a blanket chest or trunk or coffee table or whatever you want to call it.

I pieced the top together.

I rusted the hinges,

painted and stained it all for a great storage piece.

  2. It doesn't surprise me you do so well! You do beautiful work!! I agree with Gail how do you know how to price your items? Do you do it mainly on the time you spend? You obviously price them right...they sell! Thanks for sharing your info!! I love the blanket chest!!! And the hinges look so good rusted!

  3. Love the colors on this blanket chest. I'm happy to hear that you do so well at shows. I'm doing my first show in September so it will be a busy summer of painting. Blessings, Patti

  4. it's funny because I really need/want a couple of blanket chests right now-can't find any I like and/or can afford. I love yours. Too bad you live more than half way across the country

  6. So far away but I can live vicariously, can't I? If you ever decide to go south to get away from those brutal winters, please consider Delray Beach, Fla...lots of farmers market-type stuff going on in the area in the winter. We cater to "snowbirds" from all over the north...brrrr :-)
