Double Desks

A pair of wall-mounted work desks add just the right amount of function to this multi-use sunroom.

How Things Turned Around

Clint added a sizable drawer to each desk and hand-turned the legs, a task that he says wasn't always so easy for him. "I hadn't had too much practice turning legs. One day in particular I tried to make a leg, and it took me basically all day, and by the time I was done, I didn’t even like it. My wife liked the leg, and my kids took it and covered it in encouraging stickers. I took it back to the shop and leaned it in the corner. A couple of weeks later, Jo stopped by with designs, and she really wanted a turned leg for her farm tables. She looked over in the corner and saw the leg covered in my kids’ stickers and said, 'That’s it. I love it! Use that for the Magnolia Farms tables.'"

Warm Wood Vanities

Clint built the twin vanities in the Magnolia carriage house which include open shelving and a single drawer each. The dark stain and intricate turned legs add depth and interest to this light gray and white bathroom.

Bar on Wheels

For this 1971 ranch home, a man cave wouldn't be complete without a wall of guitars and this mobile bar. Clint covered the bar in beautiful shiplap that is planed down and refinished.

Seventeen feet in length, this impressive farm table makes the perfect spot for family gatherings and holiday meals.

Table for Four

For a homeowner who loves white, this four-person table is a simple and sweet addition to the new dining area, which was once a screened-in porch.

Make It Shine

Different from most of Clint's more rustic tables, this more contemporary look features a sophisticated black base and galvanized steel surface.

Tiny Table Details

Joanna designed this room for a mom who works from home, so an office/playroom fit the bill. Clint created a kid-sized table with lovely scalloped edges and perfectly-proportioned benches.

TLC Table

This spacious table was actually orginal to the home, so Clint restored the table and benches as a surprise for the new homeowners who had family ties to the old home.

Front Porch Swing

Since Joanna wanted this home's new pair of porch swings to feel like they really belonged, she asked Clint to match them up to the home's new porch railing and trim.

Headboard With Delicate Details

Designed by Joanna, the showstopping headboard in this cottage bedroom was perfectly executed by Clint. An arched design mimics the brand new archways incorporated throughout the home.

Waste Not

As a way to keep a part of the old house, Clint used wood salvaged during the demo to make this petite workstation.

Craft Services

One of Clint's most innovative pieces, this 4' by 4' craft table comes with built-in shelving for extra storage and easy access to craft supplies.

Sunroom Dining

To make this quaint table for the sunroom, Clint used reclaimed wood from the floors of an old mansion.

Old Walls, New Island

Clint used a piece of salvaged wood from one of the home's original walls to make the top surface of this custom kitchen island.

Warm Woods and Metal

A stunning table and benches add so much warmth to the airy dining room. Clint opted for a black metal base to tie in with the home's new metal railing.

Candlestick Class

After a visit to his shop, Joanna ordered a plethora of Clint's hand-turned candlesticks to accessorize a pair of built-in bookshelves. One of the candlesticks (which Joanna jokes is hidden in the back) was actually the result of her first time using the lathe — under Clint's strict supervision of course!

Rail Car Dining

This expansive island features seating for five plus plenty of counter space for meal prep. Clint created the top of the island out of reclaimed wood flooring from an old rail car.  Joanna commented, "You can just see the years of wear and tear."

A Fixed-Up Fireplace

Before the makeover, this fireplace was boarded up. Joanna painted it white; and to make it a real focal point, Clint added a brand new mantel made from a beam out of an old barn and white shiplap all the way to the ceiling.

A Real Family (and Friends!) Table

This massive 16-foot table was definitely an undertaking. After helping Clint put it in place, Chip compared picking up the hefty table to carrying a Volkswagon. Says Chip, "That thing's a beast!"

Mobile Island

Clint built this one-of-a-kind rolling island for a young couple who owns their own coffee shop.

Island + Pantry

Joanna wanted to give the couple plenty of storage, so Clint's design even features pullout drawers for easy access.

Weird Wall No More

In an effort to prove to the homeowners that this unusual wall, affectionately called "The Alamo," was actually a plus, Joanna worked with Clint to totally turn it around.

Custom Outdoor Shelving

Clint started the backyard transformation with a set of floating shelves in natural wood that anchor the space and give the wall purpose, housing plants, plates and drinkware.

Pretty Patterned Wood

Joanna specifically asked for a table that had a lot of variation in the wood, and that's exactly what she got. Of course, she couldn't help but throw an adorable flower box into her request for Clint.

Custom Made Wooden Barstools

These beautiful barstools are the perfect addition to the new pass-through window and provide a great spot for a casual meal.

Husband + Wife Design Duo

For his own episode of Fixer Upper, Clint made a beautiful kitchen island, which was topped in Carrera marble that his wife picked out.

Sneaky Storage

He made the island out of reclaimed wood and was sure to include storage for kitchen necessities.

Welcoming Entrance

Joanna asked Clint to make his own front door (a first for him). They installed the door without Clint being there so that the big reveal would still be a true surprise.

Construction Site Unseen

"I truly make furniture out of some of the most awful pieces of wood, which are usually about to be taken to a landfill or burned," says Clint. "This door was made out of wood which just looked horrible. I often have this experience whenever I’m building with these materials where I find myself going, 'Oh crap, I really hope I can make this wood work!' I had that moment for sure with this door, but thankfully it worked out!"

Touch of Class

For days when the weather is nice, Joanna wanted to give this family the option of homeschooling outside. That's where Clint and his farmhouse-style kids' table came in. 

Surprise Patio

This sweet outdoor spot was designed for a couple who served as missionaries in Uganda. Their children hunted for the home and wanted a nice family spot as a surprise for their dad. That sentiment just so happens to be why Clint started Harp Design Co. in the first place. 

Gather 'Round

"When we first started, the desire for the company came from a hope to see people gather around tables again — to cook together, eat together, talk together, and ultimately just be together,” explains Clint. It looks like he definitely achieved that goal with the McCall's new table.

Weathered Craft Table

To make the perfect craft table, Clint took wood from the home's old deck. Not only did he save money by using salvaged wood, but the weathered look adds loads of personality to the space.

Joanna's Praises

Of course, Joanna knew Clint would have no problem with the task. "Basically, if there's something I'm daydreaming about as far as a piece of furniture, he makes it come to life," she says.

New Island, Old Look

For this kitchen, Joanna asked Clint to build a large island that would look as if it was already a part of the house. Clint, who is known for using salvaged wood, immediately started rummaging in the dumpster on site. Of course, Joanna got an ear full about not saving the wood from the renovation. "It's as if you don't know me at all," said Clint. Later, Joanna joked, "I did not salvage the reclaimed wood. And I got what they would call a butt chewing. Clint's in dumpster heaven right now."

Trash to Treasure

Clint also used the reclaimed wood to build a matching bench for the kitchen table. Joanna adored the table, telling Clint, "That's what was in my head, and you made it possible." Clint chimed in, "And that's what was in the dumpster!"

Staircase Spindles

In the same home, Clint was also able to create new spindles that fit in perfectly with the home's original staircase.

Ideal Reaction

For the very first episode of Fixer Upper, Joanna asked Clint to build this incredible wooden hood, which the homeowner instantly fell in love with. She said, "This is very cool. I love it. You're not going to see this in any home you walk into, which is why we wanted an old house — because of all those quirks and charms!"
