Outdoor blanket storage
MN Mom on Apr 08, 2016How about a storage ottoman? There are so many different styles to choose from...leather, upholstered in fabric or colored vinyls. Anything that isn't "crawl through proof" like a basket or open weave should work to keep your blankets bug free!Helpful Reply

Nana Vaughn on Apr 09, 2016I don't know what your decor is but it would be really cool if you could find one of those metal vintage coolers those have latches in the style of a metal tool box. I'm pretty sure they would be air tight. You could clear coat it to make it waterproof so that it wouldn't rust any further than it might already be rusted.Helpful Reply
BDK on Apr 09, 20161. Refurbish an old dresser with big drawers and use that. 2. Build a bench with a lift up lid and store your blankets in it. 3. Build a ladder that leans against the wall and hang your blankets on the rungs.Helpful Reply
Jean Myles on Apr 09, 2016I bought a Rubbermaid tote container painted it with spray paint for plastics, I picked a colour that went with my patio furniture. Now the totes come in so many colours you may not even need to paint it.Then cut some wood to fit in the indentation on the lid. Painted the wood and coated with 2 coats of exterior poly. Glued the wood to the lid with liquid nails. I use it as storage and also as a side table. It is totally water and bug proof. It has lasted outside ( summer only ) for about 4 yrs then needed another coat of paint. Cant show pictures its still packed away , Its still winter here calling for snow tomorrow. Not bad for a $15.00 investment. Hope this gives you some ideas. Good luckHelpful Reply
