10 Things You Didn’t Know About HGTV Star Joanna Gaines
8. One Piece of Furniture She’ll Never Sell
Joanna’s favorite piece of furniture is an antique tavern table. She bought it back in 2003 and it now sits in her newly decorated laundry room. The table holds such a special place in her heart that she’s said it’s the one thing from her Magnolia boutique that she’ll never sell. “I never wanted to sell it because it was the first investment I made in the shop. I’ve held onto it for 13 years, and now it’s finally settled in this space and it’s the perfect place to fold laundry and drink coffee.”
7. Early Bird
In an interview with HGTV, Joanna said she’s an early riser! Most days, she and Chip get up at around 5 a.m. in order to get all four kids ready for school and out the door and feed all the animals on their farm. Joanna makes sure she’s up and dressed before all the kids. To save time she takes her showers at night. What’s most impressive about her? She gets all four kids out the door by 8 a.m., and cooks a hot breakfast each morning. A typical breakfast is either biscuits and gravy, pancakes, or eggs with toast. For herself she simply grabs a coffee with cream to go.
