Chip and Joanna Visited Kids at St. Jude and Did Their Best Fixer Upper Yet


We’ve seen Chip and Joanna Gaines do some pretty amazing and meaningful remodels before on episodes of “Fixer Upper,” but the one they did for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is without a doubt their most incredible one yet.

Using items from their Hearth and Hand line at Target, Chip and Joanna completely remodeled the dining room at the hospital to create a cozy, home-away-from-home feel.

“It’s hard to find the words to describe how meaningful this project is to us,” Joanna told People. “We were deeply moved by our experience there.”

Before, the dining room definitely looked like a hospital dining space.

After, it looks like someone’s ginormous kitchen and dining room in their own home. So cozy and perfect for the families spending time at St. Jude.

“I really believe this is the most important place on earth, and while we are hopeful those families will not have to stay there for long, I wanted to make the space feel as comfortable as possible for them while they are there. When they go there to eat and to gather, I wanted them to feel like there’s still that sense of home away from home,” Joanna said.

Last month, Chip shaved his head bald after raising $230,092 for St. Jude.
