Shanty 2 Chic



  • Just cleaning out in-laws house, getting ready to move in and have 5 + pickup loads of wood to use for this. I love how yours turned out. I am so grateful that you share all your tutorials.

  • I am going to try to make these this week. I'd like to make 3-4 as Gifts for people at Christmas.

  • 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!

  • What size hole was drilled out for the votives? The direction's don't say.

  • 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.

  • Love the island! I downloaded the plans for it - thanks so much. I've been looking for the link to win the compound saw. I'd love to win it, but not sure what to do to get on the list.
