If you have seen the Fixer Upper episode when Chip and Joanna remodeled a home in McGregor, Tx then you know the Magnolia House is pretty awesome. It's a B&B that has five bedrooms and two bathrooms and shiplap everywhere! Technically it sleeps eight people but only six if no one wants to share a bed! Downstairs there is the living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. Upstairs there are two single rooms, a large open bedroom, bath and coffee room.
I think most of the furniture and rugs are from Joanna Gaines private collection that is now available for sale. But there are lots of antiques and flea market finds that really make the house unique. I love all of the unusual art consisting of tin with magnets holding small typed motivational sayings.
I saw some question about whether or not the Magnolia House is a true "B&B". My answer is "kind of" as they provided a very nice breakfast on the first day that lasted us the entire time! I also love the chalk boards with chalk pen lettering. I already ordered this exact countertop sign seen below (from Save-On Crafts for $23.00). Does this mean I need to take up calligraphy to make these amazing sings? (I just might need to talk to my friend Margaret who is taking an online class!) And the hanging tables in the twin room? Absolutely brilliant!
A few of you asked if there was anything I didn't like about the Magnolia Market or House. The house is located a bit far from Waco, about twenty minutes, and there aren't many healthy restaurants nearby. There are train tracks that are nearby and some nights the trains were rolling well past midnight. Other than that, it's magnificent.
Don't miss tomorrow's Artists Helping Artists podcast. The show is titled "What I Learned at Art Marketing Boot Camp". My co-host Margaret Sheldon and I will be discussing lots of exciting things! Click here for more information.
After a full day of having fun at Marketing Boot Camp all of us headed to the Magnolia Market and Silo's for a planned visit. (My previous visit was a "scouting trip".) I have to admit I was seriously bummed that I wasn't driving a u-haul home. It would have been fun to hit the back roads of Waco and shop for great vintage finds. Not to mention all of the cool stuff I would have bought at the Magnolia Seed Shop!
Joanna also recently opened a Bakery at the Magnolia Market and Silos and it's pretty cool. Duh. Of course it is. The presentation of the bakery items and cupcakes is fabulous and I love the parchment paper muffin liners! The minute you enter thee store the smell is yummy. (Unfortunately I didn't taste any of the baked goods as I gave up sweets three years ago. But I do have it from a good source that the muffins, pastries and cupcakes are very good.) I am determined to never use muffin tin liners again. From here on out ... parchment paper it is! (And by the way, the cupcakes are only named shiplap. They aren't made of shiplap, I promise!)
I did manage to head back in to the Magnolia Market for one last look. Good thing I will be back in a week because all of the Christmas merchandise will be on display!!!
Check back tomorrow as I share the inside look at the Magnolia B&B House.
