Fixer Upper


I have an obsession with the show Fixer Upper that features Chip and Johanna Gaines from the Waco/Dallas Texas area. I swear I want to BE Johanna Gaines. She’s just a woman who can carry her own, she’s got a sweet adoring husband and I swear they are the cutest most adorable husband and wife team and their kiddos are adorable too.  I wish they did homes in other places than Texas, but totally get why they wouldn’t want to go all over the place with their kiddos in tow, but if they did, I would totally ask them to work on a place for us! 😉 

The best part about Chip and Johanna Gaines is they are real down to earth people and I feel like they both put their heart and soul into their renovation projects. I find myself watching re-runs just to see their cute antics and little out-takes. If you love the Gaines and haven’t seen their blooper real, you have to check it out here

Do you ever watch this show!? I am addicted to the DIY channel and HGTV! I like keeping up with the latest trends in interior design and see how professionals do it. Of course, everything is easier on TV than when you try it on your own, (like adding a backsplash to your kitchen) but it’s still fun to get ideas! 


And speaking of ideas, my husband had the idea to install under cabinet lighting the weekend after we finished our back-splash addition. 

What do you think? Didn’t he do a great job?! 

Have you tackled any home projects lately!?

  1. I like your post because it is not so easy these days to buy a fixer-upper. I thank you for the tips and pointers, and thanks for sharing this.

  2. I haven’t seen this show, yet, but will be looking for it. We haven’t done any house stuff recently but last year we painted our kitchen and put in new flooring.

  3. I’m never doing any more DIY on our house. Too much work! Love watching others though! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love reading magazines about how to fix up your house and love this show! They are so cute together. I wish they would fix my house!

  5. I too wish they went out of state! I have an entire house that needs redone and I have no clue where to start ? They fo great work and I enjoy watching all the HGTV prigrams.

    And, yes, your husband did an excellent job!

  6. i love this couple they are so cute ..i have watched them for years and now with this new show it really shows off their talents

  7. Chip and Joanna have a great show, I really love what they do to the run down houses. It’s nothing short of a miracle.

  8. I installed under cabinet lighting in my kitchen and it was the start of my DIY adventure! These days, practically every weekend is spent either taking something down or putting something up!

  9. I am with you on their program, I watch it all the time and get some great ideas myself. Chip is always doing something crazy on the show and I think everyone really likes him. Great couple and your husband did a good job with the cabinets. I am fixing my old, old home up a little at a time and have to watch many youtube videos forhelp. I need Chip and Johanna here. They do some great work

  10. I watched to show the other night. Their “cupcake sandwich” is the only thing I can do from the show. I’m bad at DIY.

  11. I’ve never seen or heard of this show before. I’m disabled so doing any DIY is not for me anymore. I do admire people that do their own projects though!
