Magnolia can work miracles!

I am officially addicted to a TV show called Fixer-upper on HGTV! I had a ton of things to do today but I decided to take a "little 15 minute break" and watch TV....two hours later.... I am still sitting on the couch, watching a husband and wife team (Chip and Joanna Gaines) find these hopeless ugly dwellings and work total miracles renovating these homes.

My favorite episode was The Gatecrest Property (episode two) where they transformed a split level house that was STUCK in the 70s. It had awful stained carpet throughout and an eyesore of an atrium which the client keep insisting that there were reptiles living in it! The Gaines stepped up to the challege and rescued the home. The finished masterpiece is this updated modern home with an industrial twist...they even planted a little herb garden in the atrium. Check out the finished result below:

For more info on the Gaines and their company, Magnolia, check out their website here. You can also see them work their magic on HGTV's Fixer-upper. I plan on setting my DVR for future episodes!!
