DIY Blanket Box Made From Bi-fold Doors
Do you have a set of ugly bi-fold doors that you're looking to upcycle? This project solved a major problem in our master bedroom: Where do you put the decorative pillows and blankets when it's time to go to bed? This blanket box made from old bi-fold doors was the perfect solution!
Bi-fold doors are half the width of regular doors, and the decorative panels of this set I found at my local architectural salvage yard were just what I was looking for!
The smaller upper panels and lowest larger ones were the perfect size for the sides of the blanket box. I used a circular saw to cut them down to size.
I clamped the pieces together to form the box, then added a scrap piece of 1/2" plywood to form the bottom of the blanket box.
I made sure that the holes from the hinges were facing down so they would be hidden by the bottom.
I drilled pocket holes in the plywood base, and attached it to the bottom of the bi-fold door sections.
I used metal brackets to hold the sides together.
The box was painted a dark espresso color before the brackets were attached.
