Top 10 Fixer Upper Episodes

Top 10 Fixer Upper Episodes

Well, as you all know, tonight is the Fixer Upper Finale. I’ve been dreading this day since I started watching this show. I never forget the first episode I watched I remember thinking…wow this girl has the same taste as me. Little did I know Joanna Gaines was going to be a HUGE celebrity and Farmhouse style was just about to explode. I remember her “shiplap” comment and here I thought it was just called planked walls. Anyway, Joanna and Chip could not have been a better inspiration, distraction, and role model for us all. They truly bring an hour of complete joy to television each week and their love for God, family, and design are what I can relate to most.

This week, I wanted to do a tribute and countdown to my absolute favorite episodes of Fixer Upper. Though there were so many, there are definitely a few that stick out in my mind and those that I could watch the episode over and over again. Some days I feel I could just call Jo up for my own upcoming renovation…but maybe if it weren’t for their show and their amazing-ness I may have never embarked on such a journey myself. I can’t wait ’til the day I can share my own fixer-upper with you all. For now, let’s be inspired by all the amazing work that Chip and Jo have put together and prepare for our final episode of Fixer Upper this evening. Any guesses how it’s going to go down? Do you think it’ll be the best Fixer Upper yet? Idk…but I certainly will miss them and their inspiration.


10. Season 5 Episode 5

I LOooved these windows and shutters in this great room. This makeover is simply amazing!

9. The Big Country House

The layout and stunning beams with the view on this house were breath taking!!!! I especially loved the unique entrance they added to this house.

8. The Carriage House

This makeover on the Bed and Breakfast property was so stunning. I love the character that Joanna added and the built-ins on this makeover are my favorite.

7. Vintage Tudor

The neutral colors and that black and white floor were a combo made in heaven! This was one of those makeovers I thought Joanna designed for me.

6. A Touch of Euro Style

I absolutely LOVED this episode. It may have been one of the most expensive makeovers on Fixer Upper and it certainly shows. Look at that gorgeous marble fireplace and that amazing Range hood.

5.  Raise the Roof

I loved this entire house…but this dog spa was my favorite room in this entire makeover!

4. The Barndominium

This was one of the most dramatic makeovers and by far one of the coolest. I just LOVED the lower level dining room space and the high contrast black and white interior and exterior.


3. The Beanstalk Bungalow

This Season 3 episode had one of the prettiest breakfast rooms and I just adored the amazing window planter boxes on the front of the house. I say this was certainly a classic Jo fixer upper and one of my all time favs.

2. The Garden House

I think this was the first episode I could officially say I was jealous of Joanna Gaines. What a dream Garden Shed this was, with the copper gutters, white cedar shake siding, and let’s not forget that unbelievable window inside.

1. The Hot Sauce House

Fixer Upper favorite episodes

It probably is my love for European Farmhouse, but this amazing kitchen and the rest of the unbelievable makeover that took place in this episode is my #1 choice. If I could live in any of the homes made on Fixer Upper, this would be my top choice.

  1. Sad to see Fixer Upper go, but I am looking forward to what is to come for the Gaines family…I know it will be creative and wonderful!

  2. I know some people are not going to like what I have to say but I stopped watching Fixer Upper. I love Joanna’s designs and would love to copy most of them. I can’t stand watching Chip when he acts like a fool. Screaming in the car about things, climbing trees, etc. etc. etc. He is very talented but I used to DVR the show and fast forward when he was on. I just thought he acted like such a juvenile. I want to see how to change things, decorate, paint, landscape etc. NOT someone acting like a fool. Sorry but that is truthfully the way I feel.

    1. I don’t think you are the only one that feels that way Patty, and it’s funny how we each have different personalities that we enjoy watching and those that we just can’t. For me, I enjoy Chip because it’s light and easy. I feel like I am escaping when I watch them…but there are plenty of personalities on TV that I’d prefer not to watch. To each his own.

  3. So fun to read your top 10 and take a trip down Fixer Upper memory lane!! I think the recent garden episode is my favorite ever, but they have all been so wonderful!!

    1. I so agree, that was probably my favorite episode ever it couldn’t decide between that as 1 or 2.
