In the age of retro furniture, blanket chests are making a comeback, but still, it is not to the extent that they were used earlier. Most homes are doing without these for want of space, and because there are so many other options to store their blankets. The settees that are in vogue in small houses are taking care of the added storage space, and there are several people who are putting their blankets in large cabinets too. Add to that, blanket chests are expensive, because they are usually made with the best quality wood.
Another interesting idea is to make the chest double up as something else. For example, you can use it as a coffee-table. There―you will save on a coffee table, and you are not wasting any space. Another idea is to place the study table near the window instead of the comfy chair you usually keep there. You get storage space, as well as you can sit on it and admire the scene out of your window. Actually, the whole point is to save up space. This is where you put in your blankets and even mattresses (if the chests are large enough, they will hold the mattresses too) and pillows.
It is very important to keep the wood dry so that it burns well when added to the fire. Therefore, it is best to let the wood dry first and then stack it up, to avoid any damage to the wood. Building a firewood shed is not very difficult, all you need is a plan and some raw material. In the paragraphs ahead, we have some simple, yet creative ideas to help you build a utilitarian firewood shed.
