Shanty 2 Chic

Good Lord oh Mighty…….you guys are wearing me out……who upped the ante?  Seriously….I have never felt so un crafty in my life this past week, then I find these two sisters who are strutting their stuff….but they are kind enough to show us just how they strut. 

Shanty 2 Chic is two sisters that both moved into their homes around the same time.  They had a desire to decorate on a budget and boy howdy did they ever succeed.   These girls are movers and shakers when it comes to finding ways to decorate…..I have a feeling they’d make me car sick just watching them shop.

They find stuff like this pitcher.  I like roosters…..but they thought it would look MUCH better if they painted it.  Gotta love that spray paint.  I’m thinking a spray paint company should be a sponsor on TCB.

I didn’t add the before.  The candle sticks were copper.  The frame wasn’t black and it was empty.  She added burlap to the painted frame, painted her candle sticks, added a few pumpkins and made an original center piece.  You go girls.

They do a lot with burlap.  I’m on a bit of a burlap kick myself, so I love that.  They stenciled on burlap and made a wall hanging.  They have it all step by step on their blog. img_9679

If you’ve been around TCB for awhile, you know I was having a shutter dilemma.  I had a heck of time finding the right ones for my family room.  So of course when I see other shutters, I have to swoon for a bit.

I’ve never thought to add molding to them.  Hmmmm, I wonder what she’s going to use these for?

Aha! A head board!  Sweet!

One of the sisters must drink way too much coffee……she took this dresser….a highboy and converted it to a hutch!  Way too much work for me, but I wouldn’t mind if someone did it for me.

Can you believe it?  She’s so smart.  And notice the burlap?  Mmmm.

Hands down, this below is my most favorite project on their site.  FAV!  img_4773

They made their own domino wall decor.  And guess what? She shows you a  full tutorial!  TUTORIAL!!!!  Don’t make me pee my pants ladies.img_9706[1]
