Before he met wife and co-host Joanna, Chip Gaines of HGTV's Fixer Upper partnered with his parents to buy his first flip property while still in college. "After that I was hooked," Chip says. "I started buying and selling homes and commercial properties."

Joanna Gaines, of HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper, wanted to give these homeowners the kitchen of their dreams. They desired a modern, rustic open concept kitchen, but their previous kitchen was small and closed in, so Chip and Joanna knocked down the walls surrounding the space to give the kitchen more square footage, but also to provide the homeowners with the open concept home they've been longing for.
Kelsey and Trip Purks purchased an older home with an outdated appearance, but it is in a great location and within their price range. The original exterior of the house was white-painted wood with red shutters and the landscaping was overgrown. They have asked Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines to transform the look of the home to better suit their style. Chip and Jo have repainted the siding a modern gray/green and the shutters black. They kept the original Dutch door and painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They updated the landscaping and added new grass, as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
The owners of this home dreamed of having an open concept space, but they didn't know how to make their dreams a reality. Enter Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gainses removed the walls that used to separate the common spaces of the home, opening up the heart of house. Then, they added cool features to make each space unique-a custom table for the dining room, a new fire place for the living room, double islands for the kitchen-creating the home of this family's dreams.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines transformed a depressing room into a bright and festive nursery for the Purks' baby on the way. The old French Doors were removed to create a solid wall for a crib or bed placed against. The old wall paneling was removed and replaced with light blue painted drywall with white trim. Soft carpeting will be perfect for a child's room and metal crates hang on the wall and serve as storage for stuffed animals. A comfortable side chair is an inviting place to sit with the baby, and a crystal chandelier was removed from the original dining room and installed here in the nursery.
