Meet the other craftsman putting his home design stamp on Waco, Texas.
We were first introduced to Clint Harp and his wife Kelly during the first Fixer Upper season, as we watched Chip and Joanna Gaines turn the Harp family's ordinary house into a beautifully restored home. Since the episode aired, the furniture designer and long-time friend of Chip and Jo confessed that he was broke before appearing on the popular HGTV series. And now, almost five years later—having had quite a few of his specially crafted wooden pieces featured on Fixer Upper, as well as founding the Harp Design Co. store out of a garage in town—it seems like Harp’s decision to move from Houston and give up his six-figure job in sales is finally paying off.
Adding yet another notch to his already hefty tool belt is Harp’s recent announcement that he and his wife are getting their very own TV series on HGTV's sister channel, the DIY Network. The Waco-based show is appropriately titled Wood Work and has been picked up for six half-hour episodes. Although the show doesn’t currently have a premiere date, Harp posted that we could expect to see the first episode in 2018.
Much like we saw on the pilot episode that aired earlier this year in March, Wood Work will highlight Harp and his crew repurposing reclaimed and recycled wood into rare carpentry creations, as well as Kelly’s knack for sourcing amazing home décor pieces while managing the showroom and family business.
My wife Kelly and I quit our jobs and started this business," said Harp. "We're a creative crew of carpenters, artists and craftsman banging out custom furniture, home décor and any crazy cool thing our clients can dream up.
