Fixer Upper reveal cost 1

What’s the unofficial Fixer Upper reveal cost? How much will a Fixer Upper reveal set you back? It’s Tuesday, December first, which means that the hashtag #seasonthreeiscoming is officially retired: we’ve moved on to #seasonthreeishere! HGTV’s hit show Fixer Upper will premiere all-new episodes starting tonight at 9 PM EST. In order to help celebrate, we thought we would try to answer another burning Fixer Upper-based question–namely, that of the reveal cost of the homes featured on the show. (On a related note, if you’ve ever wondered whether the people on the show get to keep all the furnishings, click here to find out!)

All of the screenshots below come from the four-room fixer upper from Season One, Episode Thirteen, “Baby Boomer Buys Fixer Upper.” Obviously, not all episodes of the show feature the same number of type of renovations, so, the furnishings in some homes are going to be costlier than others. As far as a general benchmark for the first two seasons, though, this episode should work well.

Most of the prices of the decorations come from either Some of the furniture prices come from Standard Furniture–with whom Joanna Gaines has partnered for her new line of custom furniture, which will be available for purchase next month. Some others come from Waco’s own Harp Design, run by Chip and Joanna’s friends Clint and Kelly Harp. And still others come from unaffiliated companies, strictly for the sake of an approximation.

Not every item is exactly as it appears in the screenshots, so not every price is exact. Nonetheless: what is the unofficial Fixer Upper reveal cost? Let’s find out…

    Why would you want to decorate your house like a fixer upper? Those rooms are colorless and dull. And hanging a rusty p.o.s bicycle from the wall is stupid. The tetanus ridden scrap is just hanging out there waiting to cut you when you lean too far forward. I can only the imagine big effing disaster that’ll be when it falls off the wall.

    • beezow

      I don’t see why everyone fawns over Joanna’s decorating. It’s a basic white girl’s Pinterest board come to life. Yawn.

    • Glowbug

      Hanging up the rusty bike above a desk is—a NO. Do they have kids? That bike is going to fall off the wall and land on someone’s head.

  • FarrahsCryFace

    I love it but considering I have 3 young kids and big dogs, NOPE.

  • Starcasm’s 2nd effort

    First of all, the quality is usually crap at the prices shown. Secondly, this is blantant advertising for this company. I thought this was a tabloid, not a product placement platform.

    This is the second time starcasm has run such an ad campaign for this company. Annoying.

  • TA

    These rooms don’t ever look cozy or inviting to me. They’re always so bland. I’d never spend that kind of money on a room even if I had it. Homes are meant to be lived in, not looked at!

  • Na

    I agree with TA. after the renovations are complete, they all look the same.. Poor staging. Costs of renovations are extremely expensive.Staging is a joke…Beige, Ecru Sand and grey. The people do not even get to pick their own color scheme. This has to be the worst of all shows on Hgtv. On the flip side…Chip is hilarious. They are grossly over paid. $30.000 an episode.

  • Leanne

    Well I’m from nz and we love this show and for us the staging cost if you wanted to purchase that too,is incredibly reasonable, here it would be at least double that. I enjoy their relaxed approach and humour and their attention to detail and I would absolutely be showing off my whole business if I had a TV show you would not be a very savvy business person if you didn’t. Keep it coming Jo And Chip we love you down here.
