Who doesn't want their shanty to be a bit savvy, a bit clever, creative, a bit sensible, sharp and ingenious?! But hey, let's face it, most of us are living on a shoestring. Here's how I'm doing it my way, making our nest a Savvy Shanty.

Furnished Apartment

Once upon a time I was in college, and once upon a time I rented a furnished apartment and once upon a time I moved out of the apartment and various random pieces of cheap read ugly furniture followed me. This brings me to this little gem. I think this is how it ended up in my basement. See Exhibit A:
Exhibit A

Now, I like a challenge and this one posed one. First, she was vertically challenged and second, she was made from the weird speckled wood that nobody knows what it really is made of.
Now to address the height issue; clearly a pair of heels would solve that problem. (It always solves mine!)  See Exhibit B.

Exhibit B: High Heels


Exhibit C: T Nuts

Exhibit B will screw into Exhibit C says the man at Home Depot. Who knew? All you need to do is drill a hole into your wood and hammer the t-nuts into the wood and then your legs high heels will screw right into it. See examples below.




Now a few coats of Annie Sloan http://www.anniesloan.com/ chalk paint later and what we have folks is the following!
