We all covet Chip and Joanna's farmhouse-chic style and have even contemplated buying a fixer upper in Waco in hopes the couple will renovate it someday. Although that may seem far fetched, incorporating this rustic style into your own home isn't. Giving your entire home a complete farmhouse overhaul can take time though, so start with a small room like a guest bath or powder room. Keep reading to see our top five features to add in your bathroom for a complete Fixer Upper look.

Shiplap

Master Bathroom With a Personal Touch

Master Bathroom With a Personal Touch

Chip and Joanna Gaines had the homeowners' favorite quote etched in sheet metal and hung as an art piece in their master bathroom for them to reflect on everyday, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper

From: Fixer Upper

It wouldn't be Fixer Upper-inspired without shiplap, right? Joanna often finds it under the drywall in old homes, or adds repurposed shiplap for vintage farmhouse style. If you aren't sold on wall-to-wall shiplap, go for a more subtle approach with an accent wall or beadboard.

Original or Added?

Chip and Joanna found original shiplap paneling under dated drywall in this Craftsman-style home, but you can purchase salvaged or new pine boards to create the look at home.

Add a Little Shiplap

Create a taste of rustic style by adding wooden box awnings over your home's windows, like Joanna Gaines did in this Craftsman-style living room. Or, use the weathered wood to create a built-in bookshelf.

Contrast Rustic Shiplap With Modern Elements

Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines brought in shiplap for a paneled feature wall behind the farmhouse sink. A white subway tile backsplash and quartzite countertops add a modern element to the rustic space.

Complement Shiplap With Pine Shelving

Complement rustic shiplap with industrial elements, like this sculptural shelving unit made from plumbing pipe and pine planks.

Try Painted Shiplap

To create a cottage-style space that features all the texture associated with shiplap, just reach for the white paint.

Frame a Fireplace Focal Point

Here, a portion of shiplap wood siding has been uncovered, painted white and framed to elegantly extend the fireplace mantel.

Add Painted Shiplap Walls

Here, painted shiplap walls add subtle texture to this open, airy living room.

Painted Pine Ceiling

Bright white paint adds a modern touch atop the pine ceiling, and reflects light around the open living room.

Make it Cohesive

Choosing one wall material for an open concept home unifies connected spaces. Here, designer Joanna Gaines repeated the painted shiplap walls in this home's living room and entryway.

Mix Rustic and Modern

For an more contemporary look, Chip and Joanna Gaines paired painted shiplap siding with thick, streamlined wood shelves in this built-in shelving unit.

Tip: See What Lies Beneath

Since shiplap was commonly used as insulation in farmhouse-style homes, check under the existing wall surface before starting a renovation project. In this home featured in HGTV Magazine, designer Joanna Gaines found shiplap walls hidden under crumbling wallpaper. She peeled off the dated pattern and reinvigorated the room with a fresh coat of white paint.

Add White-Washed Shiplap

For a more rustic painted look, copy the look from Joanna Gaines' home kitchen: white-wash the pine surface to add brightness without covering the wood's characteristic knots and imperfections. 

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

Create a Rustic Vaulted Ceiling

Rough-hewn pine boards overhead draw the eye up to the vaulted ceiling in this bedroom designed by Chip and Joanna Gaines.

Try a Bathroom Feature Wall

Chip and Joanna Gaines decked out this master bathroom with new gray paint and a shiplap accent wall.

Pair Rustic Wood With White

White elements, like the tub, countertops and accessories, keep spaces featuring rough-hewn wood siding feeling light and airy.

Try Pine Outside, Too!

Love the look of pine paneling? Try it on your home's exterior, like Chip and Joanna did on this midcentury modern-style home.

Repurposed Furniture

Farmhouse style is often associated with giving an old, unused piece of furniture a new purpose. Here, a large antique dresser is transformed into a double-sink vanity. Visit local antique shops and flea markets to find a piece that will work for your space.

Church Pews

Church pews are a great addition to the entryway and can be dressed up with seasonal pillows for a fresh look. And with many modern churches switching to theater-style seating, these classic seats are fairly easy to come by. Side note: They are also fairly pricy, so if you find a good deal, you'd better snatch it up.

Classic Chairs

While finding two armchairs that are identical and in good shape can be a challenge, traditional wingback chairs always seem to be available. Consider buying two that are similar but not matching and recovering the pair in your favorite fabric. 

Wooden Ladders

Wooden ladders are super versatile, and lucky for us, they are also readily available. Great for hanging blankets, magazines and even high heels, these ladders are a cute accessory with major functionality.

Galvanized Everything

From watering cans to buckets to troughs, galvanized containers are a huge flea market staple. And since they are so plentiful, it shouldn't be too hard to find one for the right price. 

Glass Jars

Glass jars are plentiful at flea markets, and the best thing about them is you can always be adding unique looks to your collection. Like the shelves of green jars and gorgeous glassware seen here, more is definitely better.

Vintage Fans

Add an instant cool factor to your shelves or buffet table with a vintage fan. Though not difficult to come by, these fans can be on the pricier end of thrift-store merchandise. Opt for one that hasn't been restored to save a little money and still get a great look. 

Soda Bottles

Pay homage to the past with a fun collection of vintage soda bottles. But be careful with this one —many stores will sell bottle reproductions that aren't actually worth anything. But if you're just going for the look, new might be a cheaper option.

Bird Cages

Usually all metal, bird cages can add interest to any space. The stunning versions you can find antiquing vary in price depending on size and the condition they are in. If you're interested in adding one to your home decor, this is one item you'll want to take your time to find the right price. 

Photo By: Sarah Wilson/Getty Images

Mantels

Mantels can instantly add depth and architectural interest to your home. Though easy to find, you'll want to consider the style you are looking for rather than buying the first one you see. While the more detailed versions do run a little higher, it may be worth the extra cost in the end. If you plan to paint your mantel, little details and intricate carvings really help it shine.

School-Style Chalkboards

While it may seem like everything is chalkboard these days, the green classroom chalkboard is actually more of a rarity. You may find one that is still on the rolling display, which would be great for a kid's playroom. To achieve the look seen here, just remove the screws and hang it wherever you hope to add some schoolhouse charm. 

Industrial Scrap Pieces

While you may not be lucky enough to find a portion of a windmill, scrap metal and industrial pieces are a dime a dozen. From metal mattress springs to old metal typeset drawers, these pieces are just waiting to be reused as wall art, furniture beginnings and more. 

Tool Boxes

Perfect for a long table, Joanna regularly upcycles wooden tool boxes as charming centerpieces. Whether you find a wooden or metal version, tool boxes are easy to find when thrifting and can be used as planters, to hold towels and to keep toiletries corralled. Really, the options are endless.

Vintage Scales

Vintage scales look amazing in the kitchen. The most common versions are countertop scales, but hanging scales like the one seen here are not too hard to come by. Side note: If you actually plan to use a kitchen scale for weighing food, you may want to consider a new version with vintage charm.

Weathered Books

Books are always a great decor option. And the great part about this design is that the titles don't even matter. Simply pick up a few well-loved books at your local flea market and display proudly for an instant shabby-chic effect.

Metal Baskets

One of Joanna's favorite pieces to work with, metal baskets are just as useful as they are stylish. They come in all shapes and sizes. Consider buying an old metal locker basket. These little slices of history are often found in thrift stores and work with many different design styles.

Industrial Furniture

Industrial furniture, such as old post office cabinets and hotel mail slots, is easier to come by than you might expect. The downside with these pieces is that if they are in good condition, (and often even when they are not) they fall on the pricier side of the thrift-store scale. 

Windows

Small, large and in between, old glass windows are an easy flea market find that can be used to add some rustic charm to an empty wall. And if you're really feeling creative, consider painting them or adding a few colorful jars to display flowers as Joanna did here. 

Signs

Vintage signs are easy wall decor that tell a story, and since perfectly-distressed signs aren't readily available at every store, this is the type of thrift store find you want to grab when you find it. Even if it won't work in your house, chances are you'll find a friend or family member that is dying to get their hands on it. 

Wooden Crates

Rustic, industrial and perfect for storage, wooden crates are one of Joanna's go-to decorations. You can definitely find these used, but it may be cheaper to opt for new in this case. Side note: If you want vintage, old soda crates are easy to find with typically fair prices. 

Unique Furniture

If you have something specific in mind, you'll likely leave the thrift store disappointed, but if interesting furniture is your goal, there are so many fantastic options. And don't get stuck on the original purpose of the piece. Here, this antique cobbler's bench works as a unique side table with tons of character.

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

School Desks

Though double desks aren't around every corner, wooden school desks are pretty common. If you like this look, consider buying two and placing them together for a similar effect. 

From: Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines

Doors

While they likely won't be a perfect fit for your front entrance, vintage doors can also be used as a decorative wall hanging like Joanna did here. Old screen doors are a popular thrift store find that can be used as decor or even transformed as a useful spot to hang jewelry, cooking utensils or whatever your heart desires.

This rustic style is about making a space feel open and airy, so keep the color palette neutral and bright. Add interest through texture and nature-inspired accents, instead.

Meet the Meeks

Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines with homeowners Todd and Lexia Meek in their new dining room. The Meeks were looking for a place with character in a country setting with some acreage and ample space for a family of five. Their wish list included 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen and a space for entertaining. They were working with an all-in budget of $359,000 and were willing to consider something a little outside the mainstream.

Photo By: Rachel Whyte

BEFORE

"Outside the mainstream" is exactly what the Meeks got when they opted for this former horse-barn with concrete slab floors and absolutely no frills. It sits on a 16-acre tract, was built in 1980 and had been partially renovated to added a modest upstairs apartment. Prior to the renovation, the entrance was via outside stairs and this second story porch. List price for the land and barn was $180,000.

AFTER

Large windows and traditional barn doors add a dramatic flourish to the new entrance for the beautifully remodeled ground floor. The outside stairs and upper porch were removed and an impressive set of doors added to replace the metal garage door that was there previously.

Time to Call in the Experts

A bathroom renovation is a messy job, but someone's got to do it. Luckily, Chip and Joanna Gaines are always up to the task. Browse the duo's most beautiful designs and get ideas for your own bathroom makeover.

The 1968 Fixer Upper

Genny and Russ Davis fell in love with a family-friendly neighborhood in Woodway, Texas. This bathroom? Not so much.

The Makeover

Chip and Jo expanded the bathroom, turning it into a luxurious master suite with dual vanities.

The Shower

Decked out in Carrara marble, the new shower is a functional work of art.

The Storage Space

Expanding the bathroom left plenty of room for this beautiful built-in, perfect for storing towels, cleaning supplies and other essentials. See the entire home remodel.

The 1940s Vintage Home

First-time homebuyers Kelsey and Trip took a chance on their Waco, Texas, home. With cracked tiles and foundation issues, the small bathroom was slowly but surely falling apart.

The Makeover

Chip and Jo removed the old tile, painted the walls a light yellow and added beadboard panels. The floor tiles add a unique charm that matches the home's vintage style.

The Shower

For the shower, they chose white subway tile with a dark grout to keep it looking nice and clean. A ruffled shower curtain adds a fun, feminine flair.

The Vanity

We'd argue the reno's standout feature is the vanity — Chip and Jo revived an old dresser, giving it a fresh coat of paint in a warm gray, then added two vessel sinks with old-fashioned hardware. To top it all off, they hung a pair of ornate wood mirrors above the vanity. See more amazing designs from this episode.

The Riverside Home

This recently married couple's master bath had lots of space, but an awkward layout and dated look.

The Makeover

Twin vanities with vessel sinks, glass-front cabinets and a calming color palette outfit the updated bathroom. A new walk-in closet is a welcome added bonus.

The Shower

Stone tile flooring and a glass-enclosed shower with granite tile give off an upscale hotel vibe. See more photos from this episode.

The Craftsman Charmer

Chip, Joanna and newlyweds Kimberly and Blake could see the potential in this master bath.

The Makeover

Chip and Joanna Gaines refinished the original clawfoot tub and used shiplap to create an accent wall. A large mirror framed with matching wood helps pull the entire space together.

The Wall Art

Chip and Joanna also gave the space a romantic, personal touch by etching the homeowners' favorite quote in sheet metal. See the rest of Kimberly and Blake's makeover.

The Messy Midcentury Mod

Gray tile left the master bath in this '60s-inspired home feeling cramped and gloomy.

The Makeover

Trading in the tub for a shower and an earthy color palette make the newly remodeled bathroom feel larger and brighter.

The Vanity

Poured concrete countertops and wood shelving add much-needed texture to the formerly stark bathroom. Dual faucets installed on the walls uphold the original midcentury vibe and save counter space, too. See more stunning photos from this makeover.

The Raggedy Ranch

Angela, a Tallahassee transplant, needed a space that could acommodate both her young son and mother.

The Makeover

The new bathroom features a tiled walk-in shower, quartz countertops and pops of orange against a neutral color scheme. More from this episode.

The Overgrown Ranch

Finding a home to support Paul and Deanna King's large family in a small Texas town presented a challenge for Chip and Jo — and so did the tiny, dated master bathroom.

The Makeover

The master bathroom features black granite countertops with double vanity sinks. The remodel also included refinishing an antique clawfoot tub, a gift from Deanna's brother. See the full makeover.

The Faceless Bunker

The master bath in this couple's fixer upper had actually already been renovated, but didn't match the modern coastal style they had their hearts set on.

The Makeover

Chip and Joanna outfitted the bathroom with new tile, a storage center for linens and other essentials and an enclosed-glass shower. See more before-and-afters from this episode.

The 1937 Craftsman

Homeowner Carolyn loved the layout of the master bath of her craftsman home; however, the black tiles made the space feel dark and cramped.

The Makeover

The Vanity

The renovated bathroom also includes this charming vanity with marble countertops and a trough sink. See more of this Texas mom's home makeover.
