Y’all, I had the best weekend last week. I got to spend the weekend in the season 1, episode 1 Fixer Upper home. While that was an awesome experience, sleeping for two nights with all of my kids and my sweet granddaughter under one roof along with our dear friends was the BEST part of the weekend.
I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to share my weekend with you along with a few tips in case you head to Waco yourselves.
First of all,
This my friends is the house we stayed in.
It is a beautiful home.
Come on in, I will show you around.
The three stories of stairs are so pretty. They were quite a challenge for our 18 month old granddaughter to navigate. She could not get enough of them.
The first shiplap room on HGTV. Joanna made her mark convincing Charmaine to leave the walls open to reveal the shiplap that traditionally was covered with a “finished” wall in this one small room.
There are the requisite French doors. I just loved this little space.
The kitchen is my favorite room in the home.
I loved the beams, the tile, the vent hood, the lighting, and he countertops. That island, made by Clint Harp from reclaimed shiplap made me swoon.
Something I wasn’t prepared for was the industrial elements. The paper towel dispensers, the exit lights, the pump hand sanitizers on the wall. Charmaine said that at one point she planned a child care center here.
Oh, and Joanna would never approve of the shelves that are in the corners.
The family room was very comfortable.
The front porch was amazing.
You just have to be comfortable sharing it with all the Fixer Upper fans who drive by, stop by, jump out of their cars for pictures, even coming up on the porch, and even the one extremely brave man who asked if he could come in… in case you are wondering the answer was no. I enjoyed it and waved like a fool at all of them until they drove off… except that one.
Also, the neighborhood is rough. It is definitely the best house in the worst neighborhood now.
The house sleeps more than 12, has four full and one half baths. It is close to Magnolia Market, and the homeowner is the same person who was on the show. She checked in on us, brought a Keureg when he one there didn’t work, and was a pleasure to work with.
The home can be rented HERE, if you are interested.
The quality of the construction was apparent, the home was beautiful, and it was a great weekend for us.
This week I am going to show you you our visit to Magnolia Market.
Thanks for following along on our journey,
