Shanty ROOM Set

After 6 years of marriage, I was determined to have matching bedroom furniture. Since I could not find anything worth buying that was made of wood and did not cost a FORTUNE, I was inspired by the sisters and their DIY skills. If they could do it, so could I! I've made the bed and dressers, and I have many plans for the rest of the room! There is a pile of rough lumber begging to become the barn doors (and the dresser top) for the media dresser units, but I don't have the tools to cut the boards down to appropriate thickness... yet! Also for perspective, the tall dressers are 90 inches, I am 5'2"! These projects were completed on weekends and summer breaks, between working full time and being a wife and mom of three!

  • That. Is. Amazing! We know the Shanty 2 Chic sisters will be so impressed. What is your favorite piece?

    • I definitely love the dressers! I added drawers to the shelving units to increase our drawer space! My husband helped me move them to the room! I am anxiously waiting for time and saving for a planer to make the dresser top and barn doors! 🤗
