The best part about a blanket box is that it has a huge area on the topmost part which can be utilized as different types of tables. You can use the blanket box as a study table if you do not have one or for the time when your younger sibling wants to get a new one.
USE THEM AS DRESSING TABLE
You can also make good use of an old blanket box by keeping your everyday make-up stuff on top of it and making it a temporary dressing table. It is extremely easy to use a blanket box as a dressing table because you do not have to do anything but shift your regular stuff to the top of the blanket box.
USE THEM AS A STORAGE UNIT OF RANDOM STUFF
You will be lying if you say that your house does not have a lot of random stuff lying here and there. You can use a blanket box to store all that stuff in order to make your house cleaner and larger.
USE THEM AS A TEMPORARY WORKSPACE
Your old blanket box can effectively double up as your temporary workspace if your study table has got some issues. If the height of the blanket box seems too short to work properly while sitting on a chair, you can replace the chair with a footstool and then use the blanket box as your workspace.

If you own a dog and you have got no time to make a doghouse for them, then you can use your old cushioned blanket box as a small bed for them.

You can also use a normal blanket box if you want, but make sure that it has some sort of cushion spread over it so that the dog does not feel uncomfortable.
USE THEM AS A GARDEN BOX
You can use your old blanket box in your garden and keep all the important tools inside the huge storage space that the box has to offer to you.
