The Fixer Upper Theme Song

I never knew the Fixer Upper Theme Song was so good

I have often wondered what the full version of the Fixer Upper Theme Song sounded like, but I never knew where it came from.

Was it a full song, or just a short sound file made for the Fixer Upper TV Show for their intro?

I know it sounds weird, but this was something as a fan of the show that I really wanted to know.

Well, one day I was messing around on YouTube and I actually found the full version of the song.

it is a great tune, and I just love it.

I also found out that the female vocals on this song are from the daughter of Donna Summers. In case you are not familiar with Donna Summers she was the true queen of disco during my college days of the 70’s.

How is that for a little bit of Fixer Upper Trivia?

The song is performed by Johnnie Swim, and is from the album Diamonds. The name of the song featured on the Fixer Upper Theme is Home.

If you love the song as much as I do you can buy the album in the Apple iTunes store HERE

Chip and Joanna Gaines On The Newlywed Game?

Chip and Joanna Gaines of the Fixer Upper TV Show play the newlywed game for US Weekly.

The Newlywed Game with Chip and Joanna Gaines ? Yes, that is what I said.

Of course it is not the same Newlywed game that I watched on TV growing up in West Texas. Instead it is a quick version they played for US Weekly.

I just thought it was too cute so I had to share it with you.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did.

Wallpaper Tips – How To Buy Wallpaper

How To Buy Wallpaper

5 Great Tips on How To Buy Wallpaper.

These how to buy wallpaper tips will make your wallpaper buying experience easier.

As you know, I have been in the wallpaper business for way more years than I can remember or admit.

I have helped and assisted many, many customer on selecting wallpaper for their home over the years. I have totally loved “nearly” every minute of this crazy decorating career.

Through my experience of operating, managing and owning a retail wallpaper store I have learned a few basic wallpaper tips that everyone needs to know before the big shopping day. Hopefully these 5 wallpaper tips will make your shopping go tons smoother.

1. Study and actually think about what you would like to accomplish with the new wallpaper in your home. Are you trying to lighten the room, maybe make it look bigger, or give it a possible theme? If you see a magazine picture, internet idea, TV (you can pause it, remember) or Pinterest, or totally any inspiration or vision in that head of yours. Go ahead dream big and bring it with you.

2. Bring a few color samples from your home, a small piece of carpet, tile, granite,pillow or anything that can be used to match the colors of your room, with your new wallpaper. If not, get out the trusty smart phone and shoot as many pictures as your heart desires.
Seriously the more the better, plus you will save lots of time if the store employee is good.

3. Measure the area on your walls that will be covered with wallpaper. This is not the room size, but like I said the areas on the wall you plan to cover. Good ole elementary math still works, Width x Length=Total Sq ft. This information will allow the store to calculate the quantity of single rolls needed to purchase. The store will allow for the pattern match also know as the repeat. Plus don’t worry if the paper is pasted or not pasted, I recommend to always add a clear wallpaper adhesive to the back. Google wallpaper hanging for lots of direction.

Wallpaper is priced single and ONLY packaged in a double roll (bolt) everyone seems to get confused with this and honestly I agree but our industry set the standard over a 100 years ago and they are not changing. Most wallpaper has approximately 56 sq ft per double.

4. Make sure and get a sample to take home or check out the wallpaper book (just like the library). Many stores will offer a small free sample or allow you to purchase a bigger sample to take home. Trust me on this one, your lighting will be different than the showroom fluorescent lighting.

Go home and tape the sample to the wall, and live with it a day or two. Make sure you love it! View the taped sample in the morning, afternoon and evening light, as it does change. And do not ask for opinions of your neighbor or mother in law, everyone’s tastes vary greatly. The reason there is such a huge selection? Yup, you guessed it “variety is the spice of life”.

5. Make sure you get an extra roll of wallpaper, please!! Especially if you are hanging the wallpaper yourself rather than using a professional hanger. This is a must, in case you mess up or your toddler decides to help you. You never want to have to go buy more after you start the project. If you go back, they may no longer have the same lot/run number you originally purchased, then you can be in a heck of a mess.

It is also great to have an extra roll for unexpected repairs that may happen in the future, like a shower leak or a door knob hole. Most customers do not like to shell out the extra dollars to have a roll sitting in a closet but, you may never ever need it. BUT, if you ever do need it, you will thank me.

I hope these simple little wallpaper tips will help make it a little easier the next time you are in the decorating mood to update the wallpaper in your home. Our national wallpaper industry reported recently the average time to replace wallpaper is every 7 years, got the itch? I hope so and happy wallpaper hunting! As always, have a question, email me lelandswallpaper@gmail.com and I will do my best to help you, good luck.

Fixer Upper’s Chip Gaines Surprises Joanna Gaines

Fixer Upper’s Chip Gaines Gave Joanna Gaines A Big Birthday Surprise

Chip Gaines Surprises Joanna GainesOne of the things I really like about the show is how much of a goof Chip Gaines is. I really believe Chip Gaines has a great time being himself, and having fun on the Fixer Upper TV show.

That is part of my love of the show is how Chip Gaines is not acting, but instead being himself. At least that is how I see it.

Joanna Gaines birthday was yesterday, and she had a great surprise when she arrived at the breakfast table. Yes the surprise was in Chip Gaines Style, but he included the kids on this one. I personally thought it was fantastic.

Joanna Grimes share this post on her Instagram account yesterday, and I just thought it was adorable. I just had to share it with all of you.

What you don’t follow Chip or Joanna on Instagram? Well here are the links for you.
