If our Lord and King, Jesus was born into a barn, why wouldn’t it be good for us to dwell in?
Even when most people wouldn’t see the value in a dusty and dirty old barn, Chip and Joanna Gaines thought it would be a task well suited to them.
When I saw the transformation the famous “Fixer Upper” couple created, I couldn’t help but get excited. Wait until you see the amazing upgrade they pulled off!
It all started with an old, four-stall barn that was bought along with the land for $180,000.
By the time Chip and Jo got their hands on it, it became something straight out of a dream…
One of the best parts of the house is the dining room. It started out as an empty space full of potential…
But afterwards, it is a gorgeous room where the owners can entertain to their hearts content!
Jo took the downstairs and made a beautiful living room.
Instead of just wasting the space behind the stairs, she created a small office nook and bookshelf. Genius!
The kitchen was quite the feat. Located on the second story, it was a bit of a mess before.
But Chip and Jo opened it up and made it into a lovely space that joins a second, smaller dining option.
My favorite space was the boys’ bedroom Chip and Jo created—complete with a wall for building with Legos!
And then who can forget the gorgeous family den?! If that doesn’t say “cozy”, I don’t know what does!
It started as just a barn with four stalls, hay storage and a 1000-square-foot attic apartment, but it became the most an amazing 2700-square-foot home.
Thank you God for giving Chip and Joanna such incredible gifts and talents that they get to share with the world!
