Blanket chest plans include materials, measurements, tools and instructions for building a large, wooden chest used for storing blankets at the foot of a bed. Many blanket chests are sturdy enough to serve as extra seating in a bedroom.
Blanket chests are hinged chests with flat tops that store extra blankets. Some chests have padded tops stuffed with cotton fill. These wooden keepsakes usually measure 36 inches across and 18 inches tall so blankets and comforters do not need to be folded too many times. Less folding means more vertical space inside the chest for more blankets. Blanket chests have raised feet on each corner for easier movement.
