Fixer Upper Hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines updated the exterior of Karla Griffis' ranch-style cottage home with fresh light-blue paint, unique Chevron-patterned wooden shutters, new natural wood support beams and fresh landscaping.
This grand French Country Estate boasts custom wood shutters and native stone wainscoting for a charming yet elegant look. Archways with gorgeous wood doors and wrought iron accents add to the formal design.
This contemporary bathroom features cabinetry, doors and window louvers made from locally sourced wood. Glass tile walls create a soothing backdrop against the sleek tub and floating vanity. The home uses low-flow and oxygen-infused plumbing fixtures to reduce water consumption.
As seen on Home Town, the existing exterior of the Carson house was lost on the street with plain white siding and few distinguishing features. After the renovations, their Laurel, MS house now features a new copper roof entry portico, cedar window boxes to highlight the painted blue wood windows, new wood shutters, and a fir wood door. Host Ben Napier custom built the new working blue wood shutters.
The highlight of this room -- a built-in stone plants holding vibrant plants -- brings the outdoors in with a tropical touch. Plantation shutters just beyond open into a large bathroom set just off a guest suite. Rich hardwood floors connect the doors and trim together in a beautiful way.
Holly Marsh set out to conquer the entryway clutter issue by turning a common household item into a clever organizational system. She found this vintage shutter at a local thrift store and hung it up next to the back door where everyone comes and goes. Then, she placed S hooks and clothespins on the wooden slats to hold everyone's keys and outgoing mail, invitations and other important memos. An old wooden box below keeps often-worn shoes contained, too. Now there's no excuse for missing keys, lost invites or misplaced bills.
