Hey guys~ Whitney here! A little background about me and what started this whole process... I am a mommy to 5 wonderful and crazy kids and wife to Jenson.   I have attempted (not always achieved) almost any craft. I have found along the way that I love, love the process of building a piece of furniture from raw wood and my power tool stash, of course.
I love Jesus, my family, my tools and coffee.  We built our house in 2009 and I have spent the last few years making it a home.  I love to teach others and give advice on all things DIY and I love learning as well.  I'm lucky to be able to share this experience with my sister Ashley!

Ashley

Hey guys! I'm Ashley. I have 3 kids, Kade, Tris and Tenley. I built our home in 2013 and moved into it with no furniture. Since then, I have been busy building custom furniture to fill our new home. In our new home, so far, I have built 4 beds, 3 tables, 3 coffee tables, 2 console tables, a buffet, a media storage dresser, a mantel, 3 desks, 4 nightstands and lots of shelves, wall treatments and accent pieces. I am a home body and my second home is my workshop. I love power tools, cute shoes and purses and I love designing furniture and watching it come to life in my shop. My passion is teaching and encouraging people to DIY and I am so blessed to work along side my sis, Whit!

    I am in Queensland Australia and absolutely in love with all your plans. They are so easy to follow in theory but Australia measures timber differently. I am not sure what a 2×6 is when I go to my hardware store. Any chance you can list the conversions ect on your plans? I try to research online calculators but I am confusing myself more

    I love your canopy bed! I’m just wondering how I can make it work for an adjustable king?

  4. TONY ESPOSITO on April 7, 2022 at 9:48 am

    Hello ladies….I found something interesting to build it’s a plan on how to build an awning. It’s pretty simple actually not very durable for exterior use but for a bedroom for example it looks cool.

    I started reading about it then it was ad after ad after ad. Some actually interupted what the hell I was doing.

    You started out with good intention showing basically cop cat projects from pinterest. Now it’s eSy to see you want some cash for these plans.
    Well I read on then said screw this I’m outa here. Their tons and tons of similar sites like yours out here on the web. The difference?

    The freekin ads don’t take up 90% of what your trying to look at.
    So screw you and your site. Amazing how just a little cash changes a person/s.

    Take a hike to advertisement land like we have to it’s tacky rude and shows how one can screw up an idea.

  5. Angie on March 25, 2022 at 6:50 am

    I would like to build the diy desk but cannot find the plans except for the plans to build bookshelves beside them. Can you help me locate the plans?

  6. Mark on March 24, 2022 at 8:30 am

    Ladies, how about adding a daybed swing (twin mattress), solid, chunky and your usual beautiful touches to your furniture plans.

  7. Chelley Weaver on March 21, 2022 at 3:46 am

    Hi ladies! I love your work and while my husband are not craft-inclined, we have desire to learn. I need a table in my office to fold laundry (no “laundry room”); tall enough to not have to bend over (tall cabinet height) and maybe one shelf under to hold laundry baskets (short/square bins 20x20x14). Do you have any plans like this that come to mind? The closest thing I found was the workbench. Thank you!!

  8. Anna on February 8, 2022 at 2:12 pm

    Hi- I love the shelves in your fireplace redo post. Could you share where they are from? Or did you build them? I’m interested in how they are connected.

    thanks in advance

  9. Devin on January 18, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    I LOVE your decor and the style that use two use while building your projects. I was wondering if you guys have any furniture plans for a queen size murphey bed? I have seen some other ones out there but they look a little Jankey, I trust your plans more than other people’s plans. If you don’t have any for a murphey bed, do you think you would ever take that project on?

  10. Katie Treadway on October 4, 2021 at 3:05 pm

    I am in the process of building a loft bed. Do you have any plans for how to build steps instead of a ladder? Bonus would be if the steps could be used for storage. The loft bed is for an adult so the ladder is a little harder for her to use.

  11. Vikki Green on September 1, 2021 at 2:08 pm

    Hi ladies! I just downloaded the plans and purchased all of the lumber in kiln dried Douglas fir, MDF, Wheels and screws at Home Depot today: $308.00! My question is: What is the height when done with the wheels? I want my bench at 36″ to save my back! Please let me know as soon as you are able because I want to get started! THANKS A BUNCH! (I am not on social media nor do I have a web site…)

    I don’t know if you take request for making a project but wanted to reach out and ask. I am a mom of 4 and a young grandma of an 11 month old grandson and I love building with wood but cannot say I have the know how to put ideas into plans (working on it). I would love it if you two would build an expandable farmhouse table that would go from a square to a rectangle from 4-8 or 10 seating. Thank you for your consideration love your work! God Bless… Kim from Ohio

  14. Bruce T on June 29, 2021 at 12:58 pm

    what size hex bolt and length due you use on your barn door rollers assembly? Ya’ll do great work!!

  15. David on June 21, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Have you ever done your own murphy bed? I am really trying to make a playroom for my daughter but we need a guest room as well. adjust wondering if you have any plans or tips on building one? Thanks.

  16. Katy Owens on June 16, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    What size bed does the loft bed hold?

  17. Boy Momma on May 29, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Hi Ladies! I love what you are doing! I am curious if you have ever done a murphy bed? If so, that would be terrific to put up here. I am a bit intimidated to try it but I do think it could be done with sliding barn doors to cover it when it is put up and shelves on each side. Would love to see you try this some time!

  18. Sam on May 19, 2021 at 9:50 am

  21. Tracy on March 4, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    You guys are simply incredible. Any chance you’ll be building a tv cabinet that can be used to hide the TV on a wall? Farmhouse style of course!! 🙂

  22. Scott on February 24, 2021 at 7:28 pm

    Hi I’m looking to build the star bottom looking farm table like you girls posted on Jan 08, 2020 to YouTube, but not finding the plans. How do I go about getting them? I want to take an attempt on making this for our new home. We ordered a table back in January but it’s back ordered until May. Like you girls we have a bunch of kids so really need a table!!!! Thanks!

  23. Erica on February 5, 2021 at 6:51 pm

    I can’t find the stain color “ash” anymore from Varathane. What do you like that’s comparable to that color?!

  24. TeriBolding on January 30, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    Can you please call me my name is teri. I have a question about a bed my number is 817-526-1370

  25. Marlene Wilhelm on January 26, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Hi ladies

    You have inspired me to get my creative juices flowing!
    Since Covid has kept me pretty much home bound I’ve been busy being creative. So far I have built a mudroom in our new house, a desk for my mini-office, and have refinished my mom’s original Lane Hope chest, a jelly cabinet, my dresser, and another Hope chest.
    Thanks for inspiring me.
    You guys ROCK!

  26. Mary on January 19, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Hi ladies, I have been searching your site for a particular piece of furniture. What I am looking for is a Linen storage, something farm/country inspired, cute yet functional. My situation is, I have a family of 5. Our home has literally NO storage space. In the hallway, there is 1 closet that has 5 shelves, that is it for Linen storage, personal hygiene products/toilet paper, etc.
    And perhaps a nifty pot/pan hanging rack. I have thought about welding one but I haven’t gotten around to drawing anything up yet.

    Anyhow, you both do awesome work, I love downloading your plans for my “future projects” that may or may not get done. I hope your both had blessed holidays and a great start to 2021.

  27. Brandi Owney on January 16, 2021 at 2:29 pm

    Hello,
    My husband and I built the, Pew Bench Farm House Table, it turned out great! We are going to post about the build on our blog and we’re wondering if we could link your how to YouTube video and website to the post?

  28. Chad on January 9, 2021 at 4:54 pm

    I had a question about wood selection. The 2x4s and 6s that you have seem pretty good. I seem to be able to only find scarred, warped boards with edges sliced off. Where do you look for your wood? Big box stores, or is there a local wood place? Really interested in making some other things like the farmhouse table (my table is about 20 years old and well used by 3 kids and pets), but I would like the top to made our of decent boards. Thank, Chad

  29. Chad on January 9, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    I have just discovered you. I am currently building the large work table on wheels. I have watched a bunch of your videos. I had a question about wood selection.

  30. Kriste on January 6, 2021 at 12:21 pm

    What website do you use to purchase the decorative hardware you use on your furniture. Unfortunately I have limited access to brick & mortar stores & need to buy my items online. Thanks

  31. Tony Foster on January 2, 2021 at 10:06 am

    I have an opening I would like to close with a barn door, however the opening goes right to the ceiling. Therefore I need hardware that would allow me to hang the door from the ceiling, not a wall parallel to the door. Are you aware of anything available for this… Thank You .

  32. Sara on December 18, 2020 at 7:59 am

    How many coats of polyurethane do you use?

  33. Jennifer on December 5, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    Can you build a little front yard library stand for neighborhood kids? Would love a how-to on this:))

    Im looking for your plans for the bathroom ladder like shelve. When I found it, it said it wouldn’t open because it might have scam. I really need to make one for a friend for Xmas and now I can’t get the instructions.

  36. KEVIN HEINZ on December 2, 2020 at 9:31 am

    Do you use any wood conditioner before you stain your wood?

  37. angie on November 30, 2020 at 12:42 pm

    Do you have any plans available for a make up vanity for a bedroom?

  38. Kelly Bradshaw on November 25, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    First, I truly enjoy your projects. Been successful on building your platform bed and it worked great. My son loved it as well. On your platform bed with drawers project, have you done this for a king size bed? Was just going to change some measurements but unsure if this had been done and had any success? Also, if you have the measurements for a king size bed for this project it would save me some time. Lol.

  39. Jonathan Weeda on November 24, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    I am looking to buy a router for myself. What kind and stand would u to ou recommend?

  40. Jodi Perkinx on November 17, 2020 at 1:01 am

    Good afternoon Ladies,
    Just wondering what software you use to draw up your plans?

  41. Ryan on November 13, 2020 at 9:10 pm

    Based on your bar cart design, I built two carts from a couple of chunks of oak that fit into our laundry room closet. Found eight leftover castors in my garage, and polished up some curved steel pipe for the handles.

    (I would send photographs but I do not do Fakebook or other (un)social media.)

  42. L. Joy on November 4, 2020 at 10:52 am

    Wondering what nailer to buy for the majority of your projects: BRAD or a FINISH nailer?

  43. Stephen Cleary on October 29, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Quick question, what do you use to generate your plans? What program?

  44. Emily on October 29, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Would you ladies be willing to make and share plans for a beautiful Christmas manger that would fit a baby doll?

  45. Jason Gortman on September 13, 2020 at 10:11 am

    My wife loves the new king bed you made, i’m going to try to make it with a few mods and I was just wondering what design software you use when sketching it up.

    Keep up the Great work.

    Jason.

  46. Matt on September 9, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    Hi Ladies,

    Have you ever built an overbed table with wheels?

    Wife is wanting me to make one, found your site is a good resource and thinking it would be a great build for you with so many people working from home

    Thanks,

    .

  47. Chris on September 9, 2020 at 10:23 am

    My wife and I are welcoming our first child in December and I plan to furnish the nursery with the crib, changing table, and dresser from your plans (I LOVE your style of builds)! My only concern with it is the crib finish…I’m not super fluent in wood finishes. Is the Varathane baby safe after it’s dried? I’ve done some Google researching and I think it is, but I’m not positive. I’m asking because I like the finish you used, it looks much better than the finishes that I’ve found marketed as “baby safe”. I could also be over-thinking it and have a false perception of how much the baby will chew on the crib.

  48. Tracy Mackie on September 9, 2020 at 6:49 am

    I live in the Dallas Fort Worth area and would like to know where you get your wood. Is there a really good lumber yard that you use? Thank you!

  49. Rachel on August 29, 2020 at 3:36 pm

    I found one of your end tables in the “At Home” store and fell in love with the darker wood top and white legs! I’m looking for a console and coffee table like it. Do you have plans for making them?

  50. Marcelo on August 24, 2020 at 1:54 pm

    Is it possible to have the free plans for the coffee table featured on IG post of November 9, 2019 please?

  51. Michelle Beechinor on August 18, 2020 at 9:33 am

    Good Morning, We are building the Fancy Farmhouse table and we are unsure how to attach the table top to the base of the table, if you could give a hand that would be awesome thank you.

  52. MaryRose on August 5, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    I follow Holly Holm on Instagram. On one of her posts she mentioned you two wonderful ladies. Since the. I started following you on Instagram and now YouTube. I have yet to build anything but I can’t wait till I’m able to. So far I just watch the videos and now I have a list of items I’d like to build. Thank you for sharing your skills with the world. Love you ladies and your work.

  53. Paul on July 30, 2020 at 1:03 pm

    What is the stain you used on the DIY Rustic Modern queen bed?

  54. dennis rich on July 13, 2020 at 7:49 am

    Hi to Shanty2Chic
    I don’t use facebook but would like to send you a picture of a garden bench with planters I made using your design/plans. Thanks so much for your inspiration
    Dennis

  55. ROGER LARIVIERE on July 6, 2020 at 7:46 pm

    Currently building the rustic 6 drawer dresser, when you cut down 2x2s are they 2 inch by 2 inch or the standard store bought 2×2 which is 1.5 x 1.5?

  56. Tammy Shroyer on July 5, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    What software are you using for the designs you do?

  57. Blake Walters on June 8, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    I plan to build your fancy v table soon and I was wondering what you use to apply the stain and finish to the table and benches so it doesn’t streak. I was going to go with the same stuff you recommended and I believe you said you put one coat of each. Do you have issues with it streaking. Do you roll or brush it on? Thank you. Love your videos and website.

  58. Anonymous on June 4, 2020 at 11:43 am

    Do anyone have the video for how to build the Rustic Nightstand with Drawer?

  59. Dave Littlewood on June 2, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Hi – thanks so much for sharing so many great plans. I am almost finished making the Fancy X Farmhouse table and bench and I couldn’t find anything on your site or Ana’s regarding how to attach the table top to the trestles. Can you help please?? Thanks so much!! Dave

  60. David on June 2, 2020 at 11:42 am

    I am looking into making the six drawer dresser and was wondering about the drawer slides. The internal depth in the dresser is 16 inches and the drawer is 15 niches, the slides that was linked are also 16 inches.but the drawer need to be inset an inch in the cavity. How do we fit a 16 inch drawer slide in a 15 inch drawer with an inset?

  61. Brenda Wedderspoon-Gray on May 24, 2020 at 7:15 am

    Hi,
    I am trying to find the plans for the king size platform bed with the storage drawers underneath. I can get the plans for a regular platform bed, but I am looking for the storage part. It was listed as “Easy DIY Platform Bed – Shanty 2 Chic”. I have searched your website for it but only find the plain platform plans.
    Thank you.

  62. Jay Lewis on May 16, 2020 at 7:30 pm

    On your sun lounger, where did you findable cushion 30 inches wide? I made 2 and cannot find one. The link on your plans does not work.

    Thanks

    Jay

  63. Becky Williams on May 16, 2020 at 7:41 am

    Good morning .. wondering if you have plans, or have ever made your $40 console table with a shelf? Would like to sit along our tv wall under tv and would like to place the accessories under. Any ideas? PS it’s beautiful !!?

  64. Joe Redmon on May 11, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    Great cooler plans! Quick question, I used your plans, even learned how to use a Kreg Gig but I have a question about the stain. That stain is for interior use. I did the same but I am letting it dry to then put the spar vanish on. Have you had any issues with using a interior stain outside? I assuming the spar vanish protet the interior stain you used?? Thanks

  65. Nina on May 11, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    What tools do you recommend for someone who wants to start making furniture? Like coffee tables, end tables, simple tv stands, etc!

  66. Brian C on May 7, 2020 at 5:30 am

    Great ideas! Have you considered charging a small monthly fee for user who want to get rid of the advertising. Too many pop ups ruins your site and gets annoying.

  67. Denise Hamilton on May 3, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    I am interested in making the outdoor lounge.
    I was wondering if the sitting area could be made wider without too many adjustments??

  68. sharon on April 28, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    i love all your furniture so cute im obsessed with building during this quarantine but im unsure weather you paint before you put things together or after ? im getting mixed reviews on this and what kind of paint and brush do you use or prefer ?

  69. Kim Burrows on April 28, 2020 at 10:41 am

    Ladies, fell in love with your 36 inch wall rack in Rochester, N.Y. At Home Store!
    They only had one left; on clearance! My father bought it for me a few days ago! A gift for my new house! we tried to put it together this morning and the very first step
    attaching the seat to the sides, the oval doves were incapable of lining up to fit! holes were way off! Put everything back in the box to return for refund. Called the store and the lady said they couldn’t accept returns until after the store reopened!! Doesn’t know when that will happen because of the Corona Virus! Meanwhile my dad is out
    $ 187.00 plus tax for $202.00 for a piece that was not manufactured properly!!
    Our excitement has turned to pure disappointment!

  70. Ross Way on April 25, 2020 at 9:07 am

    What kind of wood did you use for your Pottery Barn inspired dining table?

  71. Pete on April 21, 2020 at 5:29 pm

    Hi there, great videos and plans, I’ve already made 2 of your projects and they turned out great. Is there any chance you could show me how to build a kitchen helper stool? My daughter is old enough where she is interested in helping us cook, and could use a boost up, but we need something to keep her safe.

  72. Emily Marcella on April 10, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Hi ladies!! Wanted to thank you so much for the wood cornice DIY!! My boyfriend and I had fun making them and they fit perfectly in our rustic/Indus kitchen!! Will definitely continue to follow your inspiration!!
    I would love to send you photos of the final product if I could?

  73. Lauren on April 7, 2020 at 7:50 am

    Hi Ashley and Whitney!!!

    For your large engineering print frame you made for your son’s room with his baseball picture in it; how would you incorporate glass over that? How would it attach and what would you recommend!?

  74. Angie Neubauer on March 26, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    Love your furniture plans! Have you ever done a four poster farmhouse style bed?

  75. Sandy on March 4, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    I purchased three side tables and a TV console with wood tops and white and blue washed bottoms. I bought them from the AT Home Store and would like a matching coffee table. Can you make one for me?

  76. Kerry on February 22, 2020 at 11:48 am

    I cant find your link to the products used in your video for the barn finish. I believe you said you used dark walnut stain and white linen spray paint, but from what companies? thank you

  77. Rob Tronti on February 19, 2020 at 10:04 am

    Whitney/Ashley, I have a question, its about basic math, but I wanted to bump my question off both of you before I attempted.

    Here’s my question, I’m going to build the Large Work Bench from your site, but instead of the top frames being 72″ long, they will be 48″ long, now, what would my bottom frames be, 42″ long?

    It appears from your original plans you subtracted 6″ from the top frames of 72″ to come up with 66″ for the bottom frames, not sure that analogy is correct, that’s why I’m writing the experts…:0)

    I still intend to keep the width for the top and bottom frames the same as per your plans. I would really appreciate your assistance.

    Thank you,
    Rob Tronti

  78. tandi griffin on February 12, 2020 at 10:31 am

    Hi. Where do you find the 3/8″ 6 x 2 and 4 x 2 craft boards? Making the Barn Door Console and having a tough time finding those

  79. Heather Stempka on February 10, 2020 at 11:47 am

    I excited!! We recently bought our first Miter saw, Ryobi of course! I’m wanting to make various DIY projects but I’m really intimidated by this large piece of equipment. I’ve been watching videos but still in need of some advice or guidance. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you

  80. Brad on February 8, 2020 at 9:03 pm

    Hi ladies. I just wanted to thank you very much for you inspirational and informative videos! Not to mention your awesome plans. I completed my awesome new bed frame and my wife and I are so excited. Thanks for everything. I’m looking forward to my next project.

  81. PAMELA A LANE on January 31, 2020 at 7:40 am

    Do you have a source for the wood you used on the vent hood in your flip house? I’m in the DFW area.

    Thank You ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  82. Melissa Hoover on January 25, 2020 at 9:05 am

    Hello, I just found your video on floating shelves! Love it! You give me confidence to get it done. I have a question about the finished shelf. It looks like in each corner there is a decorative dark round disk. Could you tell me what those are?

    Hi, I wanted to thank you for the plans for the DIY work bench. I made 2 for my garage and love them. I did find some minor mistakes in the plans which I can send you and additionally made a modification of my own that you might be interested in. Please send me an email and I’ll send you the info along with photos of my work benches. Thanks! Doug

  84. Chris Brinkman on January 22, 2020 at 6:56 am

    Hi there, I just had a question about the stains and methods of staining you use. I love the farmhouse natural look that is on several of your pieces (mainly the DIY modern rustic king bed). What stain color do you use and how do you apply it to get that look? Thanks!

    could I build a floating shelf that is 18wx24d? would it be sturdy?

    How much did it cost for you to flip that entire house?

  87. Kyle Smith on January 7, 2020 at 11:10 am

    I am wanting to build a rustic wine buffet for our dining room. Do you have any blueprints available for an item like this? I was going to make the middle open with an X to store the bottles and two sides of the middle close with doors for shelving. Any help would be appreciated.

  88. Laura Gaudin on January 5, 2020 at 11:01 am

    I love your coffee “stations” but I have a very small dining room that is the only place I could put a coffee station. I am wondering if you could offer a design for a corner coffee station? Kind of like a corner “hutch” but more of a coffee station. I know I could look online for a pattern/design somewhere else but I just love your designs and you make your designs so easy to follow! I can provide dimensions and a picture if needed.
    Thanks so much,
    Laura Gaudin from Edmonton, AB CANADA

    Your pocket screw holes work good on the long boards for a table top, but the end boards(bread boards) have to move, as in stink & expand with the weather.
    Pocket holes & glue will not let that happen! Your table will tear it self apart.
    Search youtube for a example of this. good luck.

  90. Cyntia Dafoe on December 9, 2019 at 11:21 am

    Hello ladies! I love your work and have replicated many of your plans before. Everything has always turned out really good. My current project is a builtin for my living room, I’m using one of your DIY Cane Cabinet plan, however my measurements are a bit different, so my question is how do you guys calculate the door size? Do you have any tips?
    Thank you!!

    Milé dámy, teď jsem vás objevila na druhé straně Světa 🙂 … v České republice. Nastěhovala jsem se do domu, kde je téměř vše KO, takže různě prováním rekonstrukce. Majitel domu se moc nechce finančně zapojovat. Ale díky vaší inspiraci jsem docela zatočila s různými věcmi, které mě štvali a svůj domov vylepšila.

    Přeji mnoho dalších úspěchů a těším se na videa 🙂

    Can you provide consulting service for (on a budget) ideas on how to transform the front of our farmhouse 80’s home to have the same look and feel of your most recent finished home?

    Hey Ladies! I’ve been a fan from the start! I’m a self acclaimed DIYer but don’t get to DIY near enough! My husband and I are recent empty nesters and are in the planning stage of a total home makeover (who am I kidding, I’ve been planning this for years and already have the floor plans sketched, lol). Our first project will be our workshop/barn (I’m a city girl so I say workshop, my husband is a country boy so he says barn, lol). I want the perfect combo for he I, but I don’t know where to start? I want a space in the workshop for my DIYing and he needs the rest for all his tools, farm stuff and storage. Any ideas plans etc. would be SO appreciated! Ya’ll are the best, keep rockin’ it!!
    Sincerely,

    I love your floating shelf tutorial! I am making some for my kitchen. I mis measured the bracket length. My shelves will be 30 inches long and the bracket is cut to 28 inches. So it is not a snug fit. Will that be a problem? Will the shelf hold?

    Thank you so much!!!

    I have a question on your rustic modern queen bed the one you built your daughter. I am going to build this bed for my daughter and I really like the color. can you tell me what kind of stain you used. thanks for you help

  106. jess on August 15, 2019 at 9:38 am

    Hi! You two “rip” a lot of your wood. I was hoping you could give advice or make a video on how to do so! The only tool I have is a circular saw but would be willing to buy the necessary tools. I am also confused how you measure the sides to rip it properly. Any advice would help! thanks

    First off I love y’all videos and plans are easy to follow. I am in the process of doing the 8 board coffee table and I’m having an issue when joining boards they end up bowed. This is the second one I have done first one I did not have a table saw and could not cut the cull off so I figured to bowed because of it. The second one I used a table saw and ripped down like the instructions said to do but when I joined them it made to end pieces are pulled higher than middle pieces. How do I correct this?

  115. Cathy Truman on June 27, 2019 at 7:37 am

    Would you guys ever consider making plans for a murphy bed without the expensive hardware? Haven’t found anything incredibly sturdy, aesthetically pleasing, or not on the ground. Our bonus space could really use something like this!

  117. david on June 24, 2019 at 6:31 pm

    would love to see a murphy bed!

  118. Karen Lawson on June 20, 2019 at 5:04 am

    Would you have a simple plan for a Church or Gothic style arched window frame? Would love to see this done by you girls!!! You are both so creative!!! Thanks for your consideration.

  119. Mitch Smith on June 18, 2019 at 5:18 pm

    Do you have any trouble with table top movement? Everything I’ve read says not to pocket hole screw breadboards to table end and not to screw the top into the frame. Most sites say to use table top fasteners to attach the top and to use dominoes, dowels, or a tenon joint to attach the breadboard.

  120. Bill Boyles on June 7, 2019 at 3:08 pm

    How far from the top board should the 1st center piece (2nd board) be.
    How far from the bottom of the 2nd board to the top of the 3rd board be
    How far from the bottom of the 2nd center board (3rd board ) be to the top of the 4th board be

  121. Colin Kanady on June 2, 2019 at 5:52 pm

    Hi! Huge fan! I have a question about the DIY Barn door hardware. Do you have a list of everything you used with sizes? I’ve actually built one of the nightstands but haven’t stained or put together the bar door hardware yet. Will post it when it’s all done! Thanks for your time and the list if you have one!

    Hello!

    We are starting our own woodworking business and religiously follow you both! We apprecicate all of the hard work and dedication to your craft. We have been having some difficulty with pine wood however. Do you use a wood conditioner ever? The conditioner significantly changes the color of the stain and I cannot seem to find the perfect combination. We are wondeirng how you get such rich colors without making the wood turn our blotchy!

    Thank you!!!

    ok I am wanting to build the barn style night stand what type of plywood that you used on this project… was birch, maple or what? I want to get started right away please respond when you can so I can price

    • Colin Kanady on June 2, 2019 at 5:55 pm

      If you download the printable plans it will tell you what type of wood they used. I just finished the nightstand, the plywood is birch. And any of the trim is pine

    Hi Whitney & Ashley!
    I love the area rug you purchased for your office. I was excited and proceeded to look it up to purchase in a 9×12 trim size. Unfortunately, that’s not an option.
    Was there another rug that caught your attention for all the same reasons/criteria? I too, want to refain from orange accents. I like the neutrality of the rug you picked because it could complement the different seasonal colors.
    I love your work and thanks so much for sharing all the great options to upgrade the humble home.
    Best,
    Cindy

    Thank you!!

  134. DBull on March 23, 2019 at 1:48 pm

    I printed the DIY plans for the Shanty2Chic Barn Door Chic Shelf (as called by At Home) last year from your website. I have all my pieces cut and stained, then time went by and I never put it together! Now I’ve lost my plans and I can’t find them anymore on your website. Is there any way I could get my hands on those old plans so I can finish my shelf?! Thanks!

My first project is going to be the Modern Farmhouse Coffee Table. I was wondering if you had any ideas of how to make a matching side table? Thanks!!

  137. William Atwell on March 5, 2019 at 11:51 am

    Hello,
    My wife and I are an avid DIY. I focus mainly on woodwork for basic furniture such as shelves, chest, any type of frames, etc,, and I continue to learn new skills. My wife is totally bent on crafts. We love watching your videos, but we sorely need the videos to have CC (closed captioning) so we can follow ya’ll in the conversation. Would you please add CC so we can grow better in our skills as well learning the jargon and the terminology related to woodworking? Thank you, and keep up the good work!

  138. Heather Longworth on March 2, 2019 at 2:52 pm

    has anyone tried building the coffee farm house table without ripping the 2×4, 2×6’s just curious about measurements and if its buildable, or should I just rip them. only 1/2 inch needs to be ripped, I would have to do with skill saw since I have no table saw

  139. Diana Piper on February 28, 2019 at 2:29 am

My question is: Is there a printable version (pdf or word) of the detailed projects that are available on the web site?

    Thanks in advance and keep up the great projects.

  141. Christopher on February 26, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    My wife has fallen in love with your floating shelves and tasked me with building 4 on either side of our TV/fireplace. I’ve put together one as a test run and the box+cleat weighs approx. 30 lbs. (48 inches wide, 15 inches deep). Each set of shelves will be mounted somewhere between 12 – 15 inches between each other vertically. I only have 2 studs from which I can mount the cleats on either side of the fire place/TV. My question, would the 2 wall studs be able to safely hold approx. 120 pounds of shelving plus whatever is put on them? Which I’m assuming will only be 10-15 lbs. max of décor/books, etc. Thanks for any assistance!

    Hi! I’m working on the King bed DIY project. The project list and directions aren’t quite clear to me. You mention both 1.25 and 2.5 inch pocket hole screws. I’m not sure what to use for what. Could you please clarify for me? Thank you!!

  146. Tim Smith on February 9, 2019 at 8:51 pm

    Do you use a planer for your projects? Built a small desk, that I love, but didn’t plane the boards and have a few uneven spots that I’ll need to sand out.

    Thanks!

    Do you have queen size plans for the Modern Farmhouse Platform Bed

  150. Allison on January 27, 2019 at 11:26 am

    I have to build this furniture quite a bit due to my job, and i am highly disappointed. For how expensive this stuff is, you’d think it would be better quality. Time after time screw holes don’t match up, or the screws aren’t already stripped straight out of the box. Currently (trying to) building the X-side hall tree and the wood nails are oval but are supposed to fit into a smaller circle hole? And trust me this isn’t user error, this is just how everything is made. I am having to throw away a $250 piece just because of negligence in production. It’s just sad that these women are making so much money off of something that i would definitely not be proud to call mine. Very very poor quality and way too overpriced.

  151. Kevin Guinard on January 25, 2019 at 11:45 am

    I would like to make the Rustic Modern King bed and the pans look amazing , but there is no dimensions as to where all the pocket holes are to be drilled ?? Can you help with updated dimensions on your plans for the pocket holes please ?

  156. Daniel Sandefur on January 11, 2019 at 2:49 pm

    I just watched your floating shelves video. Once you installed the boxes on the cleats, did y’all nail down the boxes to the cleats or just left it as is so it can be removed easily?

    Love the YouTube videos these 2 are very highly skilled craftsmen and have amazing designs. I took a page out of their book for my haringbone wall in my entry way and it looks awesome. I was wondering if you had plans or an idea on how to build plantation shutters at a reasonable cost?

  161. Chelsey on December 28, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    It there a way to make the king size head boards fit under my window and still look like yours. I need about 5 inches shorter than what you have on the measurements of 65″

    Hello Ladies,

    You guys are so creative! I have learned so much from your videos.I have a design for a King bed that I simply love and want! But as creative as I can be, I do not have the appropriate tools or expertise to build this one. Do you take custom orders to build furniture?
    Thanks for all your insights!

    What table saw do you all use, and/or recommend?

  175. Lori Strazzulla on October 18, 2018 at 11:30 am

    Hi Ladies, I am ready to make a set of floating shelves for my bathroom but I have one question. How do I secure the cleat to my wall where the studs are steel rather than wood? Can you help a girl out? Thank you!

  176. Kelly on October 17, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    Hello ladies, my niece and I will be making an ornament tree based on your DIY plans. My miter saw doesn’t go to 50. If I cut a 45 degree angle, would I then reduce all of the other cuts by 5 Degrees to compensate?

    Thanks for your time and the plans.

    Hello ladiesI would like to know where J can get your plans and measurements and pocket hole screw placement for the 8board farmhouse coffee table. Any thing you can send me or any insight would be grateful Thank you very much.

  178. Libby Brady on October 3, 2018 at 12:59 pm

    I learned about you through my husband, Michael Brady, who leased you Colleyville space. I looked you up on YouTube and see you ladies are serious. We need to remodel our Colleyville kitchen and family room fireplace area. Do you take on projects? If so I would like to meet with you and discuss.

  179. Sean Brannick on October 2, 2018 at 7:22 pm

    First off you two are amazing! You’ve inspired me to branch into wood tables and tops! I currently am employed as a solid surface Fabricator making kitchen and bathroom counters and such. Anyway, my first attempt with wood is one of your farmhouse benches. My question is this, I have the 8 2×5 boards pocketed together and I notice they are not level with one another! I tried my best to level them when connecting but I’m thinking he lumber was less than flat. I have no planer and was wondering if it’s possible to just sand them smooth and level? Will I still be able to achieve a good quality stain on them after?
    Sorry for the long post.

    Sean aka aspiring table maker! 🙂

  180. Steve Langley on September 30, 2018 at 6:50 pm

    I just completed building my portable workbench using you free “Large workbench plans”. I am very proud of the final results. The only change that I made to your plans was to shorten the legs by 3/4 of an inch. I did this so that I could utilize 2 sheets of 3/4 inch Marine Grade Plywood that I had in my shop. As you can guess the 1 1/2 inch thick top is very sturdy. I have pictures that I would love to send you .

    Thanks so much!

    Hi there! Can I just say I am obsessed with all things Shanty2Chic and I have name dropped you to so many people. I feel like you could almost hire me as your advertisement manager! So, speaking of obsession, I was wondering if you could tell me where the big HUGE sign in your sister dining room came. It is the sign that says REJOICE…it is on the chalkboard I believe. I MUST MUST have. My hubby of 35 years and I just bought our final house and I so want to put that on my wall. Can you help me???????? PLEASE???!!!!

  182. Donna McDaniel on September 25, 2018 at 7:54 am

    I have bought your furniture at At Home. Love it! I have an old wooden desk that I would like to finish in the stone wash finish. Can I buy a self- finish product that I can do myself to achieve this look?

  183. Ashley Akley on September 18, 2018 at 1:43 pm

    Hello, I have been looking for the shanty 2 chic ballistrade console table at one of your Atlanta area stores. It is not available at any store. Do you know when these stores may be getting this table back in stock, or where I might be able to purchase this table?

    Hi Ladies, I am addicted to your youtube channel as of recently! I am so in love with your DIY 8 Board Farmhouse Coffee Table. I also love for things to match, haha, so I’m curious to know if you have or could create end tables that match the coffee table?

    Hi there. i love this website. you do such beautiful work. i came across the very easy, simple platform bed instructions. what would the wood measurements be for a queen sized bed? I’m not building the headboard, just the base of the bed. thanks so much!

  195. Lisa on August 21, 2018 at 7:10 am

    Love your projects! Wondering if you would be willing to create a Murphy bed tutorial? Been looking online for one and they are ridiculously expensive but don’t look to difficult to diy with a frame kit.

    Would love to see what you would create. Just a thought. ?

  196. Brad M on August 13, 2018 at 8:18 am

    HI, On your website for the storage category picture you have a console with a bunch of red tubs in it. I can’t find plans for it on your site. are those plans available?

    Hi – I’m curious what software you use to come up with your plans. I’m interested in building a simple plan for my daughter to build something and would love to give her something that is similar to the PDFs you create.

    Thanks so much – BTW – love the plans on your site. I’ve built several things and plan on building most of the furniture for our new lake house. 🙂

      Hey Ken, I have been trying to find out the same thing. I haven’t seen that they have replied to anyone who asked, but if you get the info, could you please share it with me. Their plans are amazing and make it so easy to understand not to mention how helpful the color coding is. It is an awesome program. Anyway, if you get a response, please let me know.

  210. Amber Anderson on June 13, 2018 at 2:06 pm

    The power tools are what scare me on big projects. I’ve done small DIY projects but mainly use nails, liquid nails and easy screws. I build my youngest daughters headboard that way, an entry way table that I don’t LOVE but it is very functional for our needs and then a coffee table, two side tables and what was supposed to be a liquor ‘table’ but I don’t love it either. It isn’t as functional as I would like. How do you learn to use tools like the saw on your own safely?

  211. Kylee Klok on June 11, 2018 at 11:34 am

    I am very interested in the Gresham Live Edge Barstools. Unfortunately I am not getting help from my location At Home store for purchases. Is there any other manner I would be able to purchase them in? Or can you provide me with any information on restocking dates for a particular store?

    I just learned about your YouTube channel and website. Wow you make it look so easy and you build the types of things that I would love to build myself. I am intimated to even start though. I keep looking for advice from friends and family won’t show me. Then I found you channel while looking for diy bedside tables. Wow. Do u think you could have a show about baics of cuts, etc? I can’t wait to start decluttering my home. My five kids, and 3 adults and 3 animals make such a mess. You are so inspiring.!

  216. Jackie Remis on May 13, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    I so enjoy your videos. You guys are awesome. I really want to build our Master Closet hanging and shelves. Can you do a video

    Thanks Jackie

  217. Teresa Hamilton on May 13, 2018 at 3:32 pm

    Hey, ladies! First, let me say that I LOVE watching the two of you. Keeps laughing and learning. I had a day of binge-watching your videos on youtube today and I noticed something that has always been there but I guess I never paid close enough attention to see it. Anyhow, the rolling storage shelf that holds all of your wood is a great piece. I am in the process of transforming my garage into a workshop and rather than have things attached to the walls this is a great solution and it’s pretty nifty as well. Can you give us the plans for this as well? If they are already available please direct me to where. I have not seen them in your: free plans” area.
    Keep up the great work. Empowering women to not be afraid to use power tools. I’m lovin’ it!

  218. Kinsey Cornick on May 10, 2018 at 10:17 am

    First off, I really appreciate how detailed your plans are, it makes a big difference compared to other DIY plans! I do have a question about your modern farmhouse dining table. With doing pocket joints for the table top do you ever find that the table top crown or bows as a result of doing the pocket joints with the kreg joint? Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you!

  219. Jennifer on May 8, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    Love following your diy stuff! We are looking into getting table saw to try out some of your plans. What power tools do you use or what table saw would you recommend? Thank you!

  220. Jackie Remis on May 2, 2018 at 6:39 pm

    Hi,
    thank you for sharing your videos and instructions for your projects. We have tried several of them with success. Question would the media shelves you built for your sliding barn doors media cabinet work for a closet.
    Please do some cool project ideas. I want to do my own closet in our new house.
    Thanks Jackie

  221. Katie on April 29, 2018 at 10:31 pm

    You gals are awesome!!! I’m super inspired and would love to start learning how to build my own things 😉 We recently moved our adopted grandpa into our house (He was a bus driver at my school that I got to know while on ‘yard duty’. He lost his wife of 57 years suddenly to a heart attack, and did not have family around. We asked him to be part of our lives so he would not be lonely. We have five kiddos (2 sets of twins with a little guy inbetween) so he’s now never lonely. Fast forward 7 years and he now lives with us. 🙂 We are building an addition off our house for him. Anyhow, I’d love to surprise with a few handmade pieces. He’d more than love that!! I am just started out and never thought it was really possible but I’m inspired to learn. I would love to build the farmhouse bathroom storage cabinet. It may be an epic fail, but I’m going to give it a shot.

    Probably a dumb question…but did you use purebond wood and cut it down to size…or did you buy pine wood of the exact measurements?…

    I’m also looking out replacing our entry door and exterior doors. Can you tell me the name and brand of the doors in your house that I see in the vidoes? Looks like the jeld-wen sante fe door I’m looking to possibly get.

    THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!!

  225. Sheila Widergren on April 18, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    Hello, we do a lot of rustic tables and love the white chalk paint, HOWEVER we have had a huge problem with polyurethane turning projects yellow. Do you use one that does not yellow white chalk paint? We would love to know the answer to this so we can keep making white projects. Thanks so much!

  226. Sue Seabrease on April 15, 2018 at 10:01 am

    I love the farm house table and the coffee table.Where can I find the hardware you used on the coffee table.It was black and each end was decorative you bent it in the middle.I can not find anything like that.I live in Maryland.I went to Hobby Lobby and hardwareware stores here.

  227. Danny on April 15, 2018 at 2:02 am

    What application do you use to design your projects? I am trying to find an application/tool/calculator that I can plug my cuts of wood into an it tell me how to optimize my cuts

    • Tammy on November 7, 2018 at 8:59 pm

      Hey Danny have you gotten an answer? I have seen others ask too but I don’t see a reply. If you find out, please let me know. Thanks Danny.

  229. Wendy Kal on April 12, 2018 at 4:15 pm

    Sorry about the typo below–Im looking to build a platform bed, not *end.

  230. Wendy Kal on April 12, 2018 at 4:13 pm

    I live in Hawaii and I am not able to find untreated 2×6 and 4×4 lumber, with the exception of redwood. I’d like to make a version of one of your platform ends, but do not want redwood. The stain I like does not look well on redwood. I can easily find “borate” treated wood, would this be ok to use? Would it require me to use a specific sealer or possibly paint? Please advise. I love your site and have made a handful of projects, just concerned about spending so much time (sleeping) on treated wood.
    Aloha

  231. Mary Peters on April 11, 2018 at 2:06 pm

    Just wanted to say that I only recently found the ‘Shanty’ sisters online, and I am absolutely HOOKED! I live in Canada, and have been slowly collecting some power tools over the last year. This past week I built some floating shelves, a frame (for a client, I’m a photographer), and also ‘Brooks’ bed’ for my niece and it ALL turned out AMAZING! I will post pictures soon.
    Thanks for all your inspiration! I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU DO!

  232. Lloyd on April 10, 2018 at 5:00 am

    Love the triple pedestal farm table!
    Question:
    Need to build eight tables at 12 feet with end seating available. How would you reconfigure the plans for the extra length and the end overhang?

  233. Shelly on April 9, 2018 at 8:08 am

    Hello! My husband is planning to build your crib plans for our little one arriving this August. I’m worried about the fumes and toxins in stains, paints, sealers etc. What is the safest way to stain and seal the crib for it to be safe for the baby? My husband often stains the wood furniture he makes and I can smell the stain in our house for weeks and weeks! Even maybe a month or so afterwards when I walk into the specific room where it’s sitting. Thanks!

  234. Emily on April 9, 2018 at 7:51 am

    Hi Guys,
    My husband and I have started building some of your projects and I still feel like we are getting a rough finish on them. What sanding steps do you take? Do you sand when you’re done only, before the boards are put together? Grits?
    Thank you!

  235. janet pressley on April 7, 2018 at 11:04 am

    how do I find the can storage bins as shown on Pintest

  236. Luanne on April 4, 2018 at 7:53 am

    I’ve made to projects using your plans, I’m finding in both of my projects some of the wood boards are shifting. I’m using the same amount of glue and screws and yet the wood is coming apart. Any recommendations on how to prevent this from happening again?

  237. Teresa on April 3, 2018 at 9:06 am

    My husband and I are looking at building a baby bed real soon of one of your plans. I just have a question about if the baby happens to chew on the sides as it gets older is the paint etc safe? What do you recommend using as a finishing coat over the paints to make sure the baby is protected?

  238. John oney on March 30, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    Where can I find 3/4×1/2 trim for the barn door nite stand

  239. Catie on March 29, 2018 at 12:08 pm

    Love your work! What do you do/use to prevent your wood from shrinking? Hubby built a farmhouse table, but due to the dryness of our house, the boards shrunk and have gaps between them. IS There a way to fix this type of issue?

  242. Jennifer Washington on March 24, 2018 at 12:04 am

    Hi! What is the smallest piece of wood you can make a clear out of for a shelf? Can you use a 1×2? Or would that be too thin?

  243. Brian on March 17, 2018 at 11:46 am

    Why do you recommend a brad nailer vs finish nailer for your projects? Thanks! You girls rock!

  244. Maggie on March 17, 2018 at 9:15 am

    My husband just made the farmhouse coffee table and I love it! I was looking around on line and some people said stickering to dry out the wood is necessary to prevent the wood from warping… Our plans are to make the Restoration Hardware dining table next and I’m a little worried about the longevity of the tables now. What do you think?

  245. Teresa on March 13, 2018 at 4:21 am

    Can you tell me the color of the walls and trim in Ashleys bedroom?

  246. Rhoda Marsh on March 11, 2018 at 12:03 pm

    Where do you buy your storage containers for you garage? I am looking for a good price but also something that will last. I noticed your clear containers with the blue lids. what price and brand are they? where can I buy them?

  253. Roger on February 7, 2018 at 5:34 pm

    My wife and I just purchased your farmhouse dining table from At Home and were trying to find any type of care instructions. We have two small children that have already made fingerprints with their greasy little fingers. We’ve tried mild soap and water but that hasn’t helped. It wouldn’t be helpful to know if there’s anything we can do and what can be done to prevent it other a place may or table cloth.

    • Natalie Farwell on February 11, 2018 at 9:09 am

      I have the same question as Roger. Curious about care for the farmhouse dining table. We also have a small child. Thanks!

  254. Megan on February 7, 2018 at 12:51 pm

  260. Kirsten Arendes on January 26, 2018 at 2:51 pm

    I’m so glad I found your site! I have just started getting into furniture building and have several projects in mind for our home. One is for a large kitchen table. I need some advice because I get overwhelmed when trying to decide what kind of wood to use. What do you recommend for a kitchen table? The design is going to be kind of a modern farmhouse look. Top with be 10 inch pieces and legs will be 4x4s.

  261. Mercedes on January 24, 2018 at 8:47 pm

    Hello ladies!!
    I am such a big fan of your videos amd always look forward to your next project. I was wondering if you ever consider building furniture for the pets of the house? For example I have seen dog crate covers built to look like a side table that fits over wire crates. That would be very ecxiting to see!
    Best wishes!

  262. Lena on January 24, 2018 at 7:34 pm

    Hello girls,
    I have a quick question about the farmhouse bench that you made. I am wondering if that would be the best idea for kitchen island seating, just raising the height to 24″ (and would that be a matter of just getting longer boards?), or is there a better idea that you would have for me?
    Thanks!

  263. Kellee Thurman on January 23, 2018 at 1:24 pm

    I just bought my first home. For some of the work I need to do to complete little projects, such as securing a pre-existing chandelier with screws, I’m at a loss on what screws to buy. Can you help? Is there a general screw to have on hand for small projects such as this? Thanks for addressing this very random question.

    P.S. I love your videos. You are both inspirational. Thank you for sharing your lives and knowledge.

  264. Katie on January 21, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    Hello, I am obsessed with all of your styles! So cute. I’m very interested in buying your farmhouse side tables (I need two) only problem being is that everywhere I’ve been that carry them they are sold out.

  265. Ashley Brooks on January 18, 2018 at 10:22 am

    Have you ever made a ‘faux’ fireplace? I’ve seen images, but have not watched a video. I love both of your ideas and style and would love to see a how-to video.

  266. Pat Graham on January 17, 2018 at 12:05 pm

    I have a question with regard to where I can find information on the pantry. I have seen the canned goods video and the one on the spice rack, but am looking for the rest of the instructions for the pantry. You stated you would soon make those available, and it looks as if that was some time ago.

    Can you direct me via a link, because I cannot seem to locate it on my own.

    Thank you.

  267. Carol on January 16, 2018 at 11:22 pm

    I have learned a lot from watching all of your tutorials! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, keeping it fun, and easy to follow. I have a couple ryobi power tools and have loved using cordless tools. Have you ever had any problems with your brad nailer? I have had to send mine in twice in two years and its not like I use it every day.
    Do you use a certain brand of brads? I am waiting to hear back from the ryobi techs as my local HD had to again ship it back to them. I could not see any evidence of a jammed nail. Just curious..its been frustrating.

  268. Jul Muffley on January 10, 2018 at 3:53 pm

    Patiently waiting for the DIY video for Amanda’s “faux hanging bench”. Is it coming soon??
    Also, made my first DIY project back in the fall – your console table (on castors, only 3 tools). Love it. Whole family was impressed. Lol

  269. CAROL SHORES on January 8, 2018 at 7:48 am

    just made the bed on your site looks great now to finish it! I have stained it with a coastal gray water based stain do I need to but a protective coat on it and if so what should i use? Love your stuff I use the plans for the barn door nightstand and put them together to make a tv console!!

  270. branislav on January 6, 2018 at 8:57 am

  272. Shaune Parker on January 1, 2018 at 9:02 am

    I would like to build the farmhouse console table but it’s not clear where all the pocket holes are suppose to be drilled. Could you please send me easier plans

  273. Derek Alan on December 30, 2017 at 9:45 pm

    I love you projects, but I am still searching for one more thing. Have you ladies ever put together a bunk bed? My wife and I are running out of space and looking to put our girls together.

    • Tracy Connolly on July 2, 2019 at 9:54 pm

      I have been looking to purchase a basic ceiling pot rack forever. Husband put together one for me I purchased on Amazon and it was all metal and holes didn’t line up, so back it went. Then, I remembered you teo and your free plans, but dont see one 🙁 Could you build one and put up your plans for a ceiling pot rack (with maybe a little metal corner accents?)???? Would love it if you did! Thank you!!

      • Tina Chamblin on August 7, 2020 at 7:55 am

        My Dad and are trying to build a 38×60 farmhouse table . We are using the regular style chunky turned legs. That we purchased. We would like to use the 2× 6 tongue and groove for the table top and would like to add a breadboard. We are unsure of what to use for our apron Do you have any plans on how to build this table ? Please Help

    • Nidia on January 29, 2020 at 11:08 am

      I have a farmhouse (picnic top) table and have grown tired of the gaps in between…I don’t want to build/buy another one. Have you ladies thought about or know of a way to fix this problem. I’ve been searching and found that maybe I can use wood filler (although I think the gaps on this table are too big for this), epoxy or I was thinking of finding (if there’s any) a one piece of wood and throw it on top, glue and nail it down, caulk or wood fill joints and stain/pain it all one color. I truly would appreciate you all’s opinion, input, and expertise on this.
      Thank you for your time!

      • Bob Collins on December 1, 2021 at 10:16 am

        We did the same thing, pretty much. I got 1/4 inch plywood, cut to the same size as tabletop, glued and screwed it down, sanded down the edges so that they’re very smooth, prepped the top, stained and sealed it and it looks great and is holding up very well.
        One note: be sure to photograph and document all your work for family who want their own! (Wish I’d done that!)

        • Mememe on January 11, 2022 at 12:32 am

          I did something similar on a table I flipped but I opted for beadboard plywood for the top. When I sealed the top I made sure it was smooth – all grooves were filled. It looked nice and sold quickly.

    • Mária on March 7, 2020 at 11:11 am

      Love your video’s and the things you build. Have you guys built a sewing machine table? I’m 5’ 7” and all the measurements are for 5’ 3” people. Or how do I adjust the measurements?
      Thank you and keep up your cuteness and of course your great video’s

  274. Killary on December 29, 2017 at 9:35 pm

      • Cassandra on July 14, 2020 at 11:30 am

        Hi I love your three laundry dresser plans however I have a smaller space could you send plans for the laundry basket to be turned so the dresser would be a tad bit smaller? Please and thank you

    • Brian on February 27, 2019 at 4:30 pm

  275. Carlos on December 29, 2017 at 8:23 am

    Thank you and your sister on the idea of the DIY Barn Door Hardware. It provided me with an alternative to the traditional swinging door. The kids will enjoy it to their play Sensory room.

  276. Helen on December 27, 2017 at 8:50 pm

    I love the modern coffee table with the 5×5″ legs. Can these be made by stacking boards for a cheaper option?

    • Noe Esparza on July 21, 2021 at 1:33 pm

      Hey Ashley. This is Noe Esparza I’ve been trying to get a hold of John but don’t have any of his current phone numbers my phone number is the same would you have him call me

  277. Tina Magnussen on December 22, 2017 at 4:19 pm

    Hey, I want to thank y’all for your inspiration. I have always wanted to have nice furniture and decor in my home,but as a student, I couldn’t afford the big name brand stuff that I have seen. My husband and I decided to make one of your bed frames for our Christmas this year. It turned out amazing and I absolutely loved doing it. I see more furniture building in our future. Thanks ladies! Merry Christmas!

  278. angel2485 on March 7, 2016 at 4:19 pm

    Hello girls, just discovered you today from another site and I just love your corner desk, I am thinking of attempting that project as soon as I can thank you for your inspiration I will be employing the help of my carpenter husband on this as I am not that great at using electric tools but get along fine with hand tools

  279. Kayla Therese on February 29, 2016 at 10:29 pm

    Do you ladies ever sell your items? my husband and I love the king size wood bed you crafted, but I definitely could not recreate anything like that, even with a DIY plan! Just curious 🙂

  280. TheJunkin Chick on September 20, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Just saw your show today. Absolutely loved it! You ladies are empowering women everywhere to grab a power tool and build something. Way to go ladies!!!

    • Kim Edmondson on March 30, 2019 at 9:09 am

      Hi ladies! Your page, projects and ideas have been such an inspiration for me. I just completed my shiplap wall. Can you tell me how you painted yours? I am also going for white but would like the authentic look. Thank you so much!

  282. KitKatBrown on September 20, 2015 at 1:07 pm

    Love the new show!

  283. aimee on August 24, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    Been loving your stuff I’ve seen on pinterest forever and had my husband build the farmhouse table and benches for our new home. Just realized today that we are practically neighbors as I live about 15 min north of the Alliance area. Small world!

  284. Alex Lana Dov on August 21, 2015 at 9:06 am

    You girls are AWESOME!!! Such inspiration!!!

  287. Casandra Petrucci on May 3, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    I don’t know if you gals read these comments, However, I just want to tell you girls that I love your work and your desire for what you do. There has NEVER been a piece that you have done that I havent wanted to recreate. I hope that one day I can open a similar business but for now I will just fill my house with your wonderful ideas as well as mine. You gal are a true inspiration to crafters and I look forward to more Shanty 2 Chic projects to do!

  288. Phyllis Bowens on January 12, 2014 at 9:52 pm

    I just found your site from Pinterest. I love it!!!

  289. Lynn Pelletier on November 30, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    I just love your web site, just the kind of DIY I was looking for. Do you have any suggestion on what I can do with an old pane window?

    Any ideas would be great, thanks!

    • Keith Cornelius on January 8, 2014 at 2:55 pm

      There’s a spray paint called “Looking Glass” that turns windows into mirrors. And if you don’t coat it completely, it looks very “vintage” as if the quicksilver is breaking down. We’ve done this with multiple windows over the years and LOVE the look!

      • Amy Joe on December 3, 2014 at 12:11 pm

        Keith, do you have any pics of windows you’ve done this way?

        • Keith Cornelius on December 3, 2014 at 12:13 pm

          I will take some tonight and send them your way, Amy Joe!

        • Keith Cornelius on December 4, 2014 at 8:51 am

          Amy, send me an email and I will share a picture of the mirror. [email protected]

      • Teresa on April 3, 2018 at 9:01 am

        I would love to see this as well. Sounds very pretty! 🙂

    • Brittnee McElroy on March 24, 2014 at 2:12 pm

      I have seen others use a window like that for picture frames. Just one whole frame with 4 pictures. Refinish or repaint and it looks amazing! Check on Pinterest too!

    • Chris on March 17, 2021 at 1:27 am

      Hello!! First of all just want to say how amazing your videos are. So motivating. Secondly wanted to ask, and im sorry if im just not looking properly, but for the loft bed that you made 4 months ago Im having issues finding the printable plans for part 2 of the bed. Both links on part 1 and 2 on youtube take you to part 1 plans. Please let me know where I can find them. Thank you so much again

    What a great idea! I am not a stay at home Mom, but my wife and I are buying a house and we are definitely looking to make it ours on a reasonable budget! I found you through Bing suggesting I take a look at building DIY outdoor patio furniture and found a fascinating article on your blog about lounge chairs! I look forward to reading more and learning how to be super cool at a price that I love! 🙂
