We are the Shanty Sisters! We are two sisters that wear many hats! Whitney is a stay-at-home mother with 5 kids, and Ashley is a stay-at-home mother of 3. We started blogging when we both moved into new homes, and were challenged to decorate more space on a budget. We love scouring high and low for shanty items and transforming them into something chic, which led us to our blog Shanty2Chic! We will take you along on our journey as we learn to transform our homes on a budget, and prove to ourselves that we don’t need to wait on our husbands to do the big jobs! We hope to inspire you to grab a paint bucket, pick up that scary tool, and get to work!


    • Hi, I liked what you are doing. I think it is so cool. So i am just starting doing my first craft...magazine tray. I watched your video many times but it does not address how you got the 5 pieces together for the bottom of the tray! I am confused. Were they glued together or nailed? If nailed how did you manage it? Please help! Out of my element Maryam lol

    • Great step-by-step directions and the pictures help a lot. I am going to build a workbench myself and this will help a great deal!
      By ROLO559, on July 24, 2014

    • Another great project idea with easy to understand (and execute) directions! Thank you so much for sharing all your creative ideas. Y'all are simply the best!!
      By Lovedbyhisgrace, on August 17, 2014

    • Nice; this is also great as rolling storage/folding surface in laundry room. Thanks for sharing!
      By DIY-Lifer, on December 19, 2014

    • The picture seems like the depth of the workbench is larger than 24". Did I misread the cut list?
      By jakeavis, on July 16, 2015

    • I built this today and absolutely love it! Thank you for the simple cut instructions.
      By prettypallets, on May 3, 2016

    • First of all I love your site and all the cool DIY plans you have. My first project is to build the workbench soi have base to work on the projects. My question is on the Adirondack chair, at what height do you place the seat supports on the legs, or did I miss it in the plans? Thanks Larry
      By fireman1088, on July 10, 2014

    • @ fireman 1088, look at pages 6 of the plans and I think you will find your answer

    • We have been looking for the perfect chairs for our upper deck. Looks like we will just build them ourselves!
      By tamilebahn_42476, on July 10, 2014

    • Approx how much does this cost to build?
      By thoopie, on July 10, 2014

    • I can't wait to get started on mine ;)
      By vhess, on July 11, 2014

    • Thanks so much guys! The chair was about $50 in lumber!
      By Shanty 2 Chic, on July 17, 2014

    • Does anyone know how much weight this would support? Trying to find a taller chair to make for my dad.
      By lmanrik, on July 21, 2014

    • I'm not sure exactly how much weight it will support, but our 6'6" Ryobi product manager tested it out and gave it a thumbs up!

    • I think I'm going to enjoy this site very much thank you
      By Ryobi , on January 25, 2015

    • I started building this chair tonight and the front leg diagram did not work out. The 5 dgree line I don't believe is right. Am I the only one that had this problem. The way I see it the line needs to be 23 3/4 from floor and 90 degrees.The leg is cut both ends on 5 degree ( so the whole leg is sitting on 5 degree angle) and if you put the 5 degree line on it the rear leg will not be level. Thanks for sharing the plans, can't wait to get it done.
      By Macy44, on January 31, 2015

    • Looks like fun chair to build and good looking plans to use.
      By dust, on February 15, 2015

    • Has anyone made this using 2x4s instead of 1x2s for the legs and braces to give it more stability and strength? Cost increase is insignificant
      By andersontoxaway, on February 18, 2015

    • Looks awesome, hope to make a couple of these this summer for our lake house.
      By clreilly, on April 1, 2015

    • i used 2 x 4's for legs and braces and the chair turned out great.
      By kangas2250, on June 23, 2015

    • To Macy44, I had the same question too about the angles and the front leg. I built like you specify without the 5 degree line on the front leg and your measurements. The chair turned out fine that way. After working with some scraps, I will be trying this again. The legs would not sit flush on the ground according to plan. I did a test cut to the bottom of the rear leg and made a 5 degree cut instead of a 0 degree cut for the foot of the rear and the scrap wood I was working with made the legs turn out flush on the ground. I plan on trying this on another chair as the chair will sit back further if the plan angles for the seat support are followed. Not sure which I will like better for comfort. I also modified and built with 2x4's. The chair turned out great!

        By RYOBI NATION, on January 2, 2018

    • why can,t i get these plans to open i have tried different browsers copy and pasted and can't get them. I had them open about 2 weeks ago and now nothing.

    • My wife has wanted me to trim out our windows for a long time... your how-to helps with the how but I'm a bit confused. You talk about the top pieces being MDF but the photos look like plywood. Am I missing something? When you put the 1/2" plywood on the sides does it help straighten out the sides? Ours are nowhere close to straight and level and hope this makes getting them there possible! Thank you. Bob

    • I am going to try to make these this week. I'd like to make 3-4 as Gifts for people at Christmas.
      By Mike Mercer, on November 16, 2015

    • I was able to make 6 of these; and they're going to make great Christmas Presents this year. I used 1x4's, instead of 1x6's, and I only used 3 instead of 4. I then added candles from the local Dollar Store. ( The candles were in small glass votives, like yours ). I also managed to get some great handles in the Hardware section of the local Dollar Store as well, to complete this project. Thanks again for the great inspiration, on such an easy-to-do project!
      By Mike Mercer, on November 19, 2015

    • What size hole was drilled out for the votives? The direction's don't say.
      By cbstrother_130147, on November 24, 2015

    • Buy the votives you want to use and drill them according to the diameter. Some are bigger than others and depending on the size of your table you may want to make it longer.

    • This is awesome. I have two drop down tables that I made already but didn't think to make a box with a frame. I'll play around with the measurements and make it a sewing/craft station that holds my sewing machine inside. I'm short on space since my craft room turned into my nursery. I will put a mirror in the framed area or use chalkboard paint and add a latch at the top to secure it closed. Now to convince my husband that since I made it, it's mine. I'm sure he will be having me make several as gifts once he sees my finished product.
      By Ms. Fixit, on March 25, 2015

    • This project is stalled out because I did not realize that I would need a special jig/kit to make pocket hole screws. You didn't show that on your posted pics. I'm a low budget DIYer so I'd appreciate if you have any solutions for me to get around this.

And since I'm wanting to resurface my cabinets using chalk paint, I'd probably finish this in chalk paint. Very nice plan....now, If I just that Ryobi tool kit.

    • Hey ladies, I am impressed with this project. My father was a master carpenter and not much rubbed off on me but I am trying to learn. I really like the modern and rustic elements of this shelving project. I am going to try this because it is so unique. Not sure I have all the tools necessary but that may mean another trip to Home Depot. I will probably be in touch with specific questions, so please be patient with my novice knowledge. Thanks, Eric
      By Eric in San Diego, on September 23, 2016

    • Is there a reason why you attached the shelve pieces with screws from the outside versus the inside? If you screwed the screws on the inside you would not have left screw holes on the outside of the shelf and have to patch them prior to painting.

Does the cutting occur at only some Home Depot locations. And I did not mean to take away from your project or instructions as the project is better than the one I planned and explained so well.

    • So gorgeous!! Thanks for the tutorials!

    • Thanks so much everyone for all your sweet comments! @socrates - Some Depot's say 12", but all 3 I go to will make the cuts this small. You can also use a circular saw with a guide or a table saw, but having them cut it was my best option! :-)

    • I used to work at Home Depot and we were not allowed to do rip cuts (under 12 inches.) I would be very surprised if you were able to get someone to do these cuts for you there. That being said this looks great and luckily I have a table saw to do these cuts myself!

      • Hey, went to Home Depot today 8/23/2016 and not only did they cut all the same sized slats that they did above, they didn't even charge us for the extra cuts that they would normally do. Thank you for the suggestion. Not that we didn't have the saw to cut it, it just let us go right into priming :}

    • Surely you mean feet (') and not inches (") when talking board cuts here, no? Very confusing.

    • Thank you! My only question...Is there a good formula to use when measuring how many battwns you should have on each wall?
      By cko430, on November 20, 2014

    • I just bought my home a little over a year ago and one of the first things I said was that I wanted a wall like this in my dining room. I have been looking for just the right tutorial for this and yours fits the bill!! Can't wait to get started on it! Very nice job!

    • Were your walls textured to begin with? I have plans to do board and batten in a couple of rooms, but my walls are textured and I think it will look funny if I don't either sand the texture off or cover it with 1/8 inch mdf.

    • What paint color did you use? It's beautiful!

    • Awesome video ladies, thanks for creating and sharing it with us. I've had tiles in my basement for just shy of 6 years that I need to put in my kitchen. They are the 1x1 tiles in a 12 x 12 square on the mesh. Can I use the same process as this, or will I need to mix up the bottom adhesive because of all the little tiles in each mesh square? Thanks bunches!!

    • In the materials used, there's a scrap 1x6 listed. In the instructions, it's a 1x3. Should the piece be 1x3 or 1x6? Thank you!
