We Binged Fixer Upper – Now We Are Here

I love our home.

I really haven’t worried about the decor or style of it, ever. I’ve never been a Pinterest wife or the trendy girl on the block. You won’t see arrows, or pink peonies or a big white farmhouse sink in my home…. until now.

Let’s backtrack a few months to Ben and I sitting down to enjoy or morning cup of coffee and stopping on a show called Fixer Upper. Like everyone else, I was instantly intrigued. Joanna’s style and Chips humor sucked us in. All of a sudden, I was recording every episode. We watched it in all of our spare time.

Soon, watching became talking, talking became pinning ideas, pinning (as it almost always does)…..

Becomes a trip to Menards.

Uh-huh…. this escalated quickly.

Fast forward a little bit to when we started working on it. Here’s what we’ve done:
