Get This Look – Fixer Upper

How to get this look - source list - fixer upperI was browsing Pinterest recently and came across this great room from Fixer Upper. I thought immediately this would be a fun room to recreate for a Get This Look post. I love this room for so many reasons. One, notice that all of the wood elements in the room do not match. I never like it when a room is a complete matched set. Combining wood tones creates a layered-over-time effect, rather than I went to the store and bought the whole set look. Two, I love the minimal pops of color. A mustard and gray combination with minimal accents of green and blue is just right.

Here is my design board inspired by the Fixer Upper Room. All very similar elements, with a mix of rustic wood tones. The bench in the inspiration room was really tough to find, so I picked a replacement that I feel gives a similar look.




Chandelier Pier 1


Tufted Sofa with Nailhead Trim – This is a really beautiful sofa at such an affordable price!



Wooden Side Table



Bleached Ivory Basket Weave Jute Rug – I have used this rug in design boards before, because I really love it. In fact, I have this in my own living room.



Rustic Bench


Update: the above bench may no longer be available, I also recommend the Natural Wood Pew Bench and the Distressed Wood Windowpane Bench shown below.

Ticking Stripe Arm Chair




Wood and Metal Coffee Table



Reclaimed Wood Picture Frame 24 X 36


Floral Pillow Cover



Trellis Throw Pillow



Botanical Wall Prints 11 x 14 – Note that these prints are smaller than the rustic frames above, I’m sure they could be resized. You could also ask the Etsy seller if they could make them in the larger size.



Glass Vase – This one is quite pricey, but you can find much more affordable options here.


The gray paint color I used as the background for my design board is Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore. What is your favorite element of the room? Is there a room you would like me to recreate for a Get This Look post? Leave it in the comments!

  1. OMG Everything is perfect! I love all the choices and I feel like I am looking at what I would have picked! 🙂

  2. Such a gorgeous room, and I love all of those pieces!

  3. I’ll take one of everything!! Especially that chandelier – oh my gosh!

  4. Love the rug! That color is my favorite. The glass vase looks great, too. Thank you for sharing!!

  5. Love it, and the tips make it very achieveable! The little bench has charmed me. 🙂 I love it. I do work at a place similar to one of the places you mentioned, and there are cheaper versions of the higher price tag look, and I don’t mean sacrificing quality or style. The perception can be cheap price= cheap junk. But that isn’t necessarily so!

    My friend thought I spent a fortune on my coffee table, but it was $33 including tax at a thrift store and worth $600. I saw the same one online to know that for sure. It had a sticky hinge on the underside of one of the two leaves. I think that was why it was donated. I fixed it without hurting it. You may laugh, but I just gave it a really good hard yank, and it no longer sticks! I like it with the leaves open, but you can have it with them down, and it looks good, too.

    I couldn’t afford to shell out for a set of anything, and each piece of (wooden) furniture I have is a different color, it so happens. My nightstands don’t even match! They are my grandmother’s telephone table (medium brown wood, with the cushion it always had) and a pale green chalk painted telephone table that matches a color in my grandmother’s table’s cushion). They are the same height and the tables on them are correct for putting them on each side of the bed where it looks right. They are not the same exact telephone table. I wouldn’t trade them for a “set, ” especially my grandmother’s!

    You have done so beautifully! Big time compliments!

    1. Tracie, your furniture sounds awesome. The only thing better than a good thrift store find is hand me down furniture with sentimental value! Thanks for sharing!
