While taking a stroll through our local Crate and Barrel yesterday (we were on a rug hunt), we came across a display piece intended to show off their brightly colored throws. Display they did, so much in fact, we're thinking about making one for our own home. Details after the jump.
With two dogs in the house, our blankets and throws are often made into "nests" so we're always on the lookout for creative ways to store them without tucking them too far out of sight. Though we couldn't recreate this exact look without the help of someone who is knowledgeable in the ways of welding, we think a simple combination of plumbing pipes should do. We've talked about other assorted projects it's perfectly suited for in the past & and we think this time is no exception.
3 pieces combined with elbows to create a "U" shape for each blanket to reside on and then attached at the bottom, what could be more simple than that (besides throwing them over the arm of the couch)?
The floor model stood at roughly 4 feet tall, though you could make your own for whatever size blanket or throw will be adorning it. Have the plumbing associate help you cut the lengths of pipe you require, instead of buying them precut. It should save you some serious cash in the process!
Where do you store your blankets? Would you prefer them to be out of sight, or out for all to see?
