We’ve all been there — it’s hour four of your Fixer Upper marathon and you’re seriously contemplating breaking the lease on your downtown apartment and moving into a modest bungalow in Waco, Texas. Chip and Joanna Gaines have made the HGTV show an instant hit, resulting in a nationwide obsession with shiplap and whitewashed brick fireplaces.
Fortunately, viewers can achieve the Fixer Upper look without actually being cast on the show. The Gaines’ run an online store called Magnolia Market with country-inspired homewares, gardening supplies, apparel, stationery and more. We’ve rounded up 11 products that will help you to create your own farmhouse kitchen — no #DEMODAY required.
1. ‘Cups for Days’ rack, $85
Both tea and coffee drinker agree that this is one stylish way to display your favorite mugs. The distressed, black metal rack will free up value space in your cupboards.
2. Metal kitchen scale, $42
A decor accent that’s actually functional? We’ll take it! This metal kitchen scale is available in cream or black, and looks especially seasonal when topped with apples or decorative gourds.
3. Square reclaimed wood tray, $44
Reclaimed wood is yet another buzzword on Fixer Upper. Joanna uses it for fireplace mantles, kitchen islands, floating shelves, planter boxes… pretty much anywhere she can think of. If you’re looking to add just a hint of rustic charm to your kitchen, this reclaimed wood tray is it.
4. Rustic white marble base, $12
These white marble slabs are incredibly versatile. Use them for serving hors d’oeuvres or as a base for a countertop vignette.
5. Vintage apple crate, $38
Many products that are marketed as “vintage” are anything but. Not these apple crates, though — they’re salvaged from various locations in Europe, and each one is a genuine antique. The crates make for stylish storage solutions or whimsical planter boxes.
6. Broke bread sign, $175
Whether you’re religious or not, this sign delivers a positive message about gathering together for a meal. It’s handmade by an artisan in the US, and features a wire on the back for easy hanging.
7. Metal wall hooks, $54
Who couldn’t use more hanging hardware in their life? These metal wall hooks offer plenty of character, with flecks of paint and rust spots. The rack comes with 10 movable hooks that are perfect for displaying pots and pans.
8. Canister set, $38
What would a farmhouse kitchen be without clearly labeled canisters? Store your coffee, tea and sugar in these just-right size ceramic containers.
9. Magnolia divided metal bucket, $31
Keep cutlery and condiments organized with this divided metal bucket. The wooden turned handles make it ideal for entertaining, whether you’re hosting a buffet-style brunch or a backyard barbecue.
10. Ellie bowls, $7
These adorable ceramic bowls come in six different colors. Use them in the kitchen for desserts, snacks and other small treats.
11. Ellis stand, $64
Chip and Joanna’s Gaines recently opened a bakery at the Silos, their sprawling property in Waco that houses the Magnolia Market, Magnolia Seed + Supply, a sprawling green lawn and numerous food trucks. On the menu there are plenty of cookies, biscuits and cupcakes — all of which could be presented on this charming two-tier stand.
