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.

Camille Flurry's Athens, Ga., bedroom is the perfect example of a tween room done right.

The white bed and nightstand first belonged to Amy as a child. She supplemented these finds with traditional area rugs from local stores. The chandelier is a budget-saver from a local lighting company that Amy customized with red spray paint to brighten Camille's room.
This little moment in the dining room reflects how Angela incorporates minimalist principals with colorful whimsy throughout the space. The artwork, painted by her two eldest children when they were just toddlers, is not only a great conversation piece but it also provides just the right amount of soft edges and free-flowing brushstrokes to create a contained chaos, that pairs perfectly with the clean modest lines of the credenza. The mod, architectural yellow chair (another one of Angela’s amazing vintage finds) may be small but it certainly makes a large impact in the space.
