Fixer Upper will end after this season.
Thank you all for watching, caring and cheering us on these past few years. We are overwhelmed by your support and your kindness. You have become a part of our story forever. Season 5 of Fixer Upper is scheduled to start airing in November and we really have saved the best for last! (To see the full announcement about our finale season, visit magnoliamarket.com/blog)
Chip and Joanna Gaines have apparently renovated every home in Waco, and made the announcement this week to the sounds of suburban hearts breaking.
However, not all hope is lost. You can still make the pilgrimage to Magnolia, or even pluck down $8 for Magnolia Journal. There’s the Magnolia Homes collection at Pier 1 Imports, which begs the question, “People still shop at Pier 1?” But after making their finale announcement, the Gaines knew you needed the balm to heal your broken heart, and they went right to middle class Mecca: in November, Target will roll out the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia home collection.
Your “only buying these items” shopping list doesn’t stand a chance.
But who will replace the void left by Fixer Upper? Who will make us discover something better than shiplap? (There is nothing better than shiplap. Shiplap is life.)
Don’t say Property Brothers – those douche beard brothers make my skin crawl.
Here’s just a few people I think deserve some HGTV TLC.

I discovered Our Vintage Nest while pursuing through Instagram just a year ago and immediately fell in love.
Blogger Alicia opens up her own home to followers, giving them a glimpse of her personal style that would make even Pottery Barn jealous. Her posts take you on a renovation journey from the bare bones of a kitchen…

Good morning, friends! Sharing some sunshine shining in from last week… I sure do miss it! ☀️ I don't think I've ever been more ready for Spring! ? I'm excited to explore or new town… The bike trails, parks, museums and outdoor activities… We haven't even begun to experience where we live! I'm determined to make the best of this winter weather… What do you do to avoid the winter blues? I'd love to hear your ideas! ? #ovnhome ➡️ http://liketk.it/2ql19 @liketoknow.it #liketkit #ltkhome #whitekitchen #kitchen
Seriously, I want to live in this kitchen.

I have long been a fan of Melissa Michaels and The Inspired Room (see my Instagram My Home post), and I’m not the only one. To say her popularity has grown is an understatement: her blog has been named one of the top home decorating blogs for the past three years, she’s written not one but four decor books that will be sitting in my bookshelf once Amazon delivers them, and she’s been a consultant for everyone from Martha Stewart to West Elm.
But what really makes Melissa a top candidate for HGTV? Like Joanna Gaines, she believes in the power of shiplap:

Here’s something that you may not know about me: I love putting together IKEA furniture. It actually calms me down to have an Allen wrench in hand and following directions that feature a eunuch putting together a bookcase.
That’s why I think Jules Yap needs her own show. Her blog, IKEA Hackers, shows you how to take all those Hemnes, Bjorkstas, and anything else you can’t pronounce and put your own spin on it. Sure, you should follow directions, but why stop there?
Sure, some of the hacks require additional time and maybe knowledge on how to thread a needle, but the payoff is well worth it. Plus, you get to go to a place that sells furniture, $1 soft serve, and Swedish meatballs. It’s basically what I hope heaven will be like.
