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.

   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.

    Seeing your projects has inspired me to redesign many pieces of furniture in my home. I really look forward to seeing the show.

    That is fantastic! Can’t wait to see your show. I’ve gotten lots of inspiration from your plans and videos.

    I watched your show this weekend and loved every second of it!! Thank you for being very informative, creative and your use of protective gear is above par. A lot of shows don’t even show them wearing protective gear. I told my husband that we have to look at your plans!! Great work ladies!!

    Omgoodness!!!…I saw you show and I thought that I had set my dvr for the repeat that night but I hadn’t. But I did get to see the last half hour the first time. I am so happy for you ladies. I am in Friendswood Texas which is just outside of Houston. I have been longing to find a class where I could learn how to build my own furniture. I think you ladies do an amazing job, but for me as a female, how can I get into carpentry? If there was just a class…As well, HGTV just started coming to TX!! If you ever decide to expand the show and need another house, I will be glad and most honored, if you would use mine. I am a mother of three, including twin girls and I just want to show them the power of women and girls and that WE ROCK!!! Thanks ladies, and I pray that God continue to do a great work in your lives and that you continue to inspire others!!

    I watch your show ladies for the first time today and I have to say that you both have a talent that can not be compared to none other. I wish someday you would give away a free home makeover because Lord know my kitchen and bathrooms could use a little touch of your hands. Congrats on the show. Keep up the good work, by all means please stay around so that I may enjoy more of your beautiful artistic talent. Be blessed.
