fixer upper season 2

Emily Oster

I must not have been the only person to enjoy the pilot season of HGTV Fixer Upper as Chip and Joanna Gaines are back for round two. Airing Tuesday nights at 8 PM central, the show's format is pretty much the same as the first season which I think is a good thing (see my original post about the show here). Chip and Joanna are just so easy to watch as they seem to be genuine people who truly enjoy what they do. Below is a selection of my favorite home transformations from both seasons one and two. 

This house was maybe in the worst condition of any of the homes featured on season one. The house had been abandoned for several years and was probably close to being condemned. Miraculously, Chip and Joanna were able to bring it back to life and make it a great home for their carpenter and his young family. 

In episode eleven of season one, the Gaines undertook this outdated country home and I just love the exterior transformation. And that tree!

The last episode of season one is maybe my favorite to date.  The architecture of this particular home was just so unique and desperately needed to be saved and preserved. 

In the first episode of season two, the Gaines did a really nice job of giving back character to this historic bungalow. I especially like the paint color with the natural wood accents as well as the landscaping.

In this week's episode, Chip and Joanna were tasked with renovating this horrible exterior very clearly from the 80s. And while its still not great (bad bad bad proportion and scale) its about a thousand times better. 

If your interested in seeing more - watch the show! And check out the Magnolia Homes website as well as Joanna's blog.

Have a great weekend everyone and happy watching!
