Living in this apartment is sometimes hard due to a lack of space and me having a lot of craft stuff (I can't stop!!). So I decided to purchase a blanket box to keep all our linens in.
I first looked around for a lovely vintage piece, but I could not find one that I liked. So I settled on this cheap little number.
I wanted to paint it but there was no need to spend a ridiculous amount on paint, all I used was one small tester of this paint. I even did two coats with it. Though I will say I did not do the top! Then I had some left over 2 inch wadding and I cut out two rectangles the same size as the top and put them one on top of the other.I took the same fabric that I used on the inside of my pouffe and cut a rectangle the same size as the top but with a two inch border all around, then I picked out this gorgeous fabric and cut out the same sized rectangle. I purchased some white upholstery nails from B&Q and then folding the fabric under, so it doesn't leave a raw edge I hammered in my nails roughly an inch apart all the way around making sure the fabric is tight, but not too tight.
