By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, HGTV Fixer Upper host Chip Gaines found the original fireplace underneath, and decided to keep it as a unique design element. The original shiplap was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood awnings were installed around the windows.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed and updated this farmhouse with new paint and warm natural wood support beams, porch railings and fencing. New landscaping and modern potted plants offer a welcoming first impression.
Homeowners, Kimberly and Brent, found two leaded glass windows at a second-hand store, which now flank the bed. An old wood frame window and cotton plant wreath serve as an art piece above the bed, and the natural wood paneling on the ceiling complements the shiplap wooden details seen throughout the house on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
