As Seen On the Fixer Upper {The Faceless Bunker}

BLOWN AWAY with last week's episode of The Fixer Upper....

I keep thinking, this is my favorite remodel Chip & Jo has done yet, and then they just keep getting better and better!!

This family was looking for a modern beach house......in Waco, Texas!!!  So, they chose a run down home with lots of potential of turning it into a Texas "beach" house.

What an amazing transformation......again!

This home must have been quite a challenge for them.  First of all, those original stairs in the home just looked crazy!  That was really the only thing you noticed in the house.  But after Chip & Jo got their hands on those stairs, I knew they didn't stand a chance.


These stairs -- the metal, the wire, the wood -- are definitely my favorite part of this home.  They set the entire tone of the home.




Loved this rug they used in the dining area.  It is a simple black and white graphic pattern that adds a lot of punch to the neutral space.  This rug is an in store exclusive from Magnolia Market.  But I was able to find a couple other similar rugs to get a similar look. 









I am obsessed with these chunky floating shelves.  Floating shelves like this are all the rage right now.  I just had some installed in a basement project I was working on -- you may have seen a sneak peek of the shelves on my Instagram page.

The commercial styled rolling island they used in the center of the kitchen is really versatile if you don't have enough space for a fixed island, but are looking for a little extra space for prep work.  They can be rolled off to the side when they aren't needed or rolled into another room for additional space when entertaining.  It really added to the modern style these homeowners were after as well.

I like this simple stainless steel rolling island from Wayfair.com.  And at under $200, it is much more cost effective than a large wood island.




Joanna also used something similar to this for kitchen decor and storage.  The Mechanics Caddy she used is from her online shop and is double tiered.  But this can serve a similar purpose.  These are great for fun and unique storage in the bathroom.  You can set a mason jar in it and keep your toothbrushes there or lotions and makeup.  They are also great to keep on the kids' table with markers and crayons in.  If you can find a real mechanics bin that was actually used to sort and organize nuts and bolts, that would be even better!


When searching for lighting, don't be afraid to look at outdoor lighting to use indoors as well.  There is no rule that says you can't use outdoor lighting inside.  I do it all the time!  I actually used something similar to this in a bathroom project with the light hanging over each mirror on a double sink.  Outdoor lighting will give you that more rustic, farmhouse feel.

Sometimes, outdoor lighting is cheaper than indoor lighting too!

Get a similar look with this outdoor wall sconce from Lowe's.





You can never have too many flowers in your house!  They are my go-to decorating item -- real or fake!

You can get the same look with this vase and these flower stems from World Market.  I have a similar vase in my home that I like to switch out the flowers seasonally.




Another gorgeous remodel!  Joanna kind of stumped me on this one -- it was a little more about the finishes and fixed items than all of the little things filling the space, which is ideal for a modern, simplistic design such as this.

Did I miss anything?  Let me know in the comments if there are any items you were wondering about on how to get a similar look for your home.

    1. I am so glad you are liking this series I am doing!!! It is good to know people are enjoying it and finding it useful! Are you referring to the dining room table? This one was custom built so it will be hard to find something similar but I would look on Wayfair, Hayneedle, Home Decorators or even Overstock all have some that are similar with a wood top and metal base. Websites like that have a variety of tables to search through.

    3. I just caught part of this episode on repeat. The makeover is spectacular, but the discovery of the letter from the nineteen-year-old was truly something extraordinary. I did not catch the story completely, and wonder if you remember what happened? I would like to see that episode again.

    4. Oh, I loved this episode, and am beyond stoked that it is on tonight with NEW EPISODES!!! If I remember correctly, the 19 year old, helped build the house originally. And he slipped a note into the home during construction. They found the note, and actually found the guy, who shows up to meet them at the end of the episode! So fun! What a great story!!!

  3. Any ideas for a look-a-like of the Martens Restoration Hardward coffee table that was used? LOVE the table just not the price! And the chandelier above the dining table and the benches? I've found tables similar just having a hard time finding that waterfall wood type bench. Oh and those bar stools!

    1. Hi, Scott. Thanks for writing. I don't know what this exact backsplash is, though it is gorgeous! Here are 3 great choices that are very similar to this from Tile Shop.
