The couple bought their Victorian farmhouse in 2012 and updated it with classic country charm. The project was completed in a year and a half, and the result was incredible.

The two-bedroom home could now accommodate a six-member family with an open layout on the main floor.

Joanna shared a before-and-after picture of the house on Instagram on January 1, 2014. She captioned the photo, ‘Favorite thing about 2013… Making this house our home.’

The doorway was decorated with French doors, an inspiring motto to set the mood when one walks through them.

Joanna made sure the entry took the breath way when one stepped inside. Smart storage solutions paired with rustic finishing makes the place look inviting and open.

Fans of the HGTV’s Fixer Upper are aware of how important are the open layout first floors. The couple created unity between the living room, dining room, and the kitchen by getting rid of the walls.

It keeps the family members as close as possible. Another advantage is that guests can be seated together instead of in separate rooms.

The living room houses a reclaimed wood table that holds together the room’s neutral but industrial color scheme. The refurbished shutters make quite a style statement.

The kitchen is a classic white room that gives the feel of a real farmhouse. Colorful pots in open shelves add to the fun element of the place.

A kitchen is an essential place of the house. Joanna said, “It’s the heart of the home for me. No matter how much is going on, I don’t feel overwhelmed because the palette is very clean and fresh.”

The star always plans a room around an ‘inspiration piece.’ She did similar in the classic kitchen and decided to make the island stand out.

Formerly the communion table in an old church, the kitchen island ‘is now the focal point and anchor for my kitchen,’ according to Joanna.

She knew where she wanted it and once that was decided, everything else fell into place.

The office is mainly white, but the couple decided to use a mix of vintage finds like a delicate chandelier and planters on wooden slabs.

A lot of thought also went into decorating the fireplace. The floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace is beautiful and looks rustic. It also has a faux deer head on the top.

The master bedroom is not just a place to spend the night; it also offers the two of them plenty of space to relax in between their busy schedules.

Adorned with smart country design decisions, the careful symmetry in the bedroom adds to its appeal. The decorative side tables placed underneath tall windows bring enough light on either side of the bed.

The girls’ bedroom is airy and fit for their little princesses. The galvanized metal trays serve the function of more traditional nightstands.

The trays also could be a lesson to the two Gaines daughters on how top repurpose flea-market finds.

The boys’ room also happens to be Chip’s favorite room in the farmhouse. The bunk beds make sure the boys have enough room even when they want to have sleepovers. There is also a basketball hoop.

The family decided to have separate bathrooms for the girls and the boys.

The coffee bar was initially supposed to be a study area for the children. However, Joanna made use of playful designs to decorate it to look like a local café.

When Chip and Joanna upgraded their farmhouse, they finished off their attic. This gave them another sitting area that could be used by the children when they want to invite friends over later in their lives.

Joanna also found another use of the new attic, two craft rooms for herself. The space offers plenty of storage, making it a place for her to work on her projects.

The children’s craft room includes a farmhouse table, the perfect addition to a workplace.

Much of the space on the 40-acres farmhouse is dedicated to their farm which includes about 60 animals. The couple also has a greenhouse and outdoor dining area.

The rustic table set-up serves the purpose for great family meals overlooking the farm, or for entertaining large groups of guests.

Their farmhouse also contains an enclosed garden area, where Joanna often takes her children to help plant seedlings.

It helps the family enjoy the feel of a farm while keeping any animals that are bound to be around.
