Shopping Fixer Upper

Do you watch Fixer Upper on HGTV every Tuesday like I do? It is a family affair in this household. We have yet to miss an episode since they started airing last fall. Joanna always picks out the best pieces to add to the homes that her and Chip breathe new life into. You can find Joanna shopping local antique shops in Waco as well as everybody's favorite HomeGoods. I have even spied some home decor from Target and Pier One on a few of these episodes. What makes the homes even more special are the custom pieces she creates for each one. 
Season 2 kicked off with "The Little House On The Prairie" remodel. She had a sign made for the couples bathroom. A sign that held a special meaning for Mr. Front Porch and I.  "Grow Old With Me" was our song at our wedding and I told Mr. Front Porch how I so wished Joanna sold that sign in her online shop. Right after I said that I decided to go online during a commercial break and see. Sure enough it was listed for sale! You can only imagine my delight and how quickly I hit the purchase button.

My sign came in the mail two days later! I am so glad that I did not hesitate about the purchase because there is now an 8-12 week waiting list for the "Grow Old Along With Me" sign. Not only do I love it because it has our wedding song verse on it but I also love the fact that it is made by a local Waco artisan Jimmy Don who owns Stars Over Texas which specializes in custom Metal Art.

I have had my sign for weeks now hemming and hawing over where I wanted to place it in our home and this week I finally decided.

This pic is from two years ago when I updated our living room with new paint and bought a new couch. Since we recently added wood beams...reveal coming soon I promise...I decided it was time to change up the gallery wall which made the perfect spot for the sign but it also meant more projects.

The shutters have received a french coat of Duck Egg.

I dug out some salvaged vintage picture frame pieces my mom gave me a few years back.

They received some updating as well.

And of course that lead to some more painting.
I think I pretty much have the wall figured out and will share the reveal on Sunday.

  3. I adore that show. I was tickled to meet Chip at the event they had in Waco in October. I stalk the images for great ideas to incorporate. Do you really think he ate a cockroach? I love your sign and I'm so happy you were a swift shopper. Next time I'm in Waco, I'm going to their shop.
