Ever wonder what to do with seasonal blankets, wool sweaters and off-season clothing? A barn wood blanket chest might just fit the bill.

Years ago, when our homes had no closets (or small ones), people used cedar chests or blanket chests to store them.

It’s still a great solution, and a pretty blanket chest like this one is decorative, in addition to being useful.

A blanket chest is often placed at the head of the bed in a bedroom. But I have also seen them used as a coffee table in the living room or as a bench at the side of a room.

This chest is made of re-purposed barn wood and clean peeled logs at the corners.

It has 3 pretty hand carved trees on the front, adding to its rustic appeal.

A clear finish highlights and protects the natural knots and grain of the wood and contributes to its natural rustic appearance.

The pine blanket chest measures 48″ wide x 24″ deep x 24″ high.

Proudly handcrafted in the USA.
