Our Show on HGTV

Hey friends!  Yes… You read that title correctly, although it’s still crazy to us to even write the words.

We are SO EXCITED to announce the air date of our new show on HGTV!  The show is called Open Concept, and will be premiering Sunday, September 20th at 1pm CST / 2pm EST!

Here’s the description of our show from HGTV’s site!

Sisters, Whitney and Ashley tear down the walls of Brooke and Dack’s boxy house. Four small rooms become one large open concept space that is the perfect home for entertaining. They use their mad carpentry skills to fill the home with 16 pieces of custom furniture they make for a fraction of the cost it would be in store. The end result is a stunning reveal of the living room, kitchen, family room and laundry.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

   We were approached to do a show almost a year ago.  Before that, we had always said no to TV opportunities.  We have actually been approached several times in similar ways, but nothing felt right about the opportunities.  Something felt different about this one, and so we agreed to start the long (but amazing) journey of putting together a show.

Turns out our gut feelings were right.  We could not have asked for a better team than we have been surrounded with.  They are so incredibly good at what they do, and they do nothing but give you guys a very real taste of us and our lives.  We thank God for this entire opportunity and have seen Him open doors we didn’t even know were there to be open.  His hand has been on the entire thing.  Our very favorite part?? We finally get to help YOU.  That has been the best feeling in this whole thing.  We really do get to use our skills now to go into other homes and change a family’s life.  That’s ultimately why we started blogging, and now we get to take that to the next level.

This is Ash and I just before seeing the house for the first time… We will call this a shanty selfie.

After walking through the house, we did some interviews.  Can’t explain the expressions here… We make those a lot quite naturally… 🙂

And yesterday… Yesterday was demo day.  Best day yet.  We finally were able to see our vision for this house and family as we tore the walls down.  I am seriously sore typing as I write this…. Even my fingers.  The best workout really is tearing down walls… Trust.

  But, we will be sharing lots of fun updates on Instagram and Facebook, so follow us there!

And do know one more thing.  On our show… There will be furniture.  Lots of it. 🙂

Thank you so much guys for your support over the last 6 years.  We really have you to thank for this opportunity as well.  Thank you for your encouraging words, for sharing our projects that you create, and of course for sharing our site and projects with your friends.  We still shake our heads at where Shanty2Chic has come in this 6 years and know that it is not our doings.  It’s much bigger than us, and we are thankful to be along for the ride.

    This can’t happen fast enough! Just hanging a camera in your workshop and streaming live video of your hilarious and productive teamwork would be the best show on TV…

    I’m so excited for you girls! I’ve been following your blog from the beginning and I can’t explain how thrilled I am to soon watch you on hgtv. a fave channel. You guys not only do a great job at building like a girl, but you set a great example while doing it. I love that you both have kids and are family oriented, but that doesn’t stop you. We need more peeps like you in our society. Thanks for all your efforts & ideas!
