Hobby Lobby Finds with Fixer Upper Style

Today was a lovely day.

We ran into Hobby Lobby on Labor Day so that I could scope out their fall decor. Somehow though, I had left my phone sitting on the kitchen table. I saw so many interesting things and no way to share what I found. So, today as we decided to run to Sam's Club for milk (why is milk suddenly so expensive at the grocery store? Don't they know I have boys in the house?), I knew that I would probably have time to run back in to Hobby Lobby and snap a few photos. Thank you, Dave. (I have a great husband!)

I really noticed the influence of my favorite HGTV show, Fixer Upper, in Hobby Lobby today. I think you'll see what I mean.

Have you seen Fixer Upper? This is the husband and wife team, Chip and Joanna Gaines. I  love them and their obvious love for each other and their kids. It is refreshing to see.

Joanna is the designer of their projects and uses a lot of vintage, distressed type things in her designs.

But back to Hobby Lobby:)

Here's a few things that caught my eye today.

These metal letters reminded me a lot of  the design style on Fixer Upper.

Chipped, vintage look and I LOVED the glass knobs. If we ever build a house again, I would like glass doorknobs for every bedroom door.

This was a heavy cabinet type door with wire basket and hooks below. It would work great in a mudroom or hallway.

I loved the distressed look of this piece. This would be a beautiful accent color  to use in a room.

                                     Loved that this arrow lit up. It would be so cute in a theater room.

                                       I wish I had a place to put this. My husband is glad that I don't.

                                                                   I love old signs.

                                                   My little boy (who loves atlases) would love this map.

                            Another chipped, vintage looking piece. I've seen a lot of blogs where they use something                             like this for hanging jewelry.

                              A little architectural interest. It would look great in our dining room.

                                           Glass knobs. You can't get much better than these.
                                       I know. I need a manicure. Sigh - I always notice too late.

And this little beauty came home with me today. I just love it! It reminds me of school days and of some of the choices for Fixer Upper (and the fact that it was 40% off didn't hurt either!)

What do you think of the design style on Fixer Upper? Has it influenced any projects in your home?

Linking up to:


  1. I adore the show! Waco is about 100 miles from where I live and I think about going and finding Chip and Joanna every time I drive through there. :)

    My husband and I are planking a wall right now in one of the bedrooms. I told him we are Chip and Joanna yesterday and he just about cracked up!

    Great finds at Hobby Lobby and I'm glad you pointed out their style. I love HL but seem to lack good ideas when I'm in there.

  2. Hi Stacey! You definitely should! And take lots of pictures!
    I have met so many people who love that show, too. I can't wait for their new episodes.
    I know, I sometimes wander aimlessly around Hobby Lobby, too. But I saw so much great stuff there yesterday.
