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 Chicis 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.
