Episode 14 - The Hot Sauce House

This home we renovated for the Ignacio family was really one for the books. The rustic Italian style home was brought to life by the raised ceilings, dramatic raw wood beams and dark wood floors. This home’s ironwork, antique doors,…

Episode 13 - The Worm House

Jordan and Rachel, along with their three young kids, needed a home where they could spread out, but also where they could gather as a family. The house they chose was an undertaking, but the fact it was on land…

Episode 12 - The Pocket Door House

The Phipps family was in the middle of a move back to Waco, Texas with their two young kids and needed a comfortable space to call home. Lauren loved the classic farmhouse style. With this in mind I designed an…

Behind the Loom: The Making of Magnolia Home Rugs

Episode 11 - The Prickly Pear House

For this beautiful Colonial Cottage we brought back the fan favorite “german smear” technique from season 3! This home was originally very traditional looking with red brick, white trim and dark shutters. We brought it back to life by updating…

Episode 09 - The Double Decker House

  Believe it or not, Chip and I actually conquered a houseboat renovation a few years before the show started, so this wasn’t our first experience, but it was still a huge challenge for us. Renovating a boat comes with…

Episode 08 - The Straight '80s House

The Bufton family has a clean, traditional style, and the home they purchased matched up with that perfectly — other than the fact that I don’t think it had seen a single update since it was built. It was already…

Artisan Spotlight - Jimmy Don

I met Jimmy Don when I wanted to have a few things custom made for our house and for my clients. The first time I went into his metal shop, I loved the way it felt like a small town…
