A Blanket Butler


warm blanket please blanket butler


May I interest you in a blanket sir or madam?

“Why yes, I think I’ll take a pillow as well Edgar.”


At Your Service

If only it could fluff up your pillow too… Maybe when the robots take over.

Anyhow, Joe had a slick idea to use this wall for a blanket rack. It cleans up the movie room clutter for one. And it lets people choose his/her own blanket from the wall of fleece and cotton. I’m affectionately calling it Edgar from this point on. It’s been useful so far! And we can still use that nook for storage. (Where Joe the vacuum hides). Two cheers for multi-purposing space!

We used these Closet Max closet sockets. Ours came in white. You can buy them in chrome or black, but we decided to spray paint them all to match the bars.

Come for movie night?

Movie night is about to get a whole lot comfier! Obviously we had this concave space to work with, but it could also work with a flush wall. I imagine it would look like larger hand towel holders. Anywhere in your house where you have creative stored things? Or does anyone else have a weird nook that they’re not sure what to do with? I bet we could think of a few ways to convert it for you…
