Shanty 2 Chic

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!
