If you miss watching ‘Fixer Upper,’ this renovation update from Joanna Gaines will satisfy your need for some home improvement. Chip and Joanna are hard at work on their third bed and breakfast. This time, they’re renovating an old gristmill in Texas. And while removing plaster from the walls, they made an incredible discovery: some gorgeous stonework hiding underneath.

“We are used to coming across shiplap in a lot of the old homes we renovate but this amazing stone we found behind the plaster is unlike anything we’ve seen! We can’t wait to restore this 130 year old beauty,” Gaines captioned the pic.

Who would cover up this gorgeous stonework?!

“The Mill” is located at 401 East Avenue A in Valley Mills, Texas, about 30 minutes Northwest of Waco, where Chip and Jo live. According to KWTX, the 2,480-square-foot limestone mill was originally built in 1900. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a gorgeous backyard. The Magnolia Homes team plans to keep the structure and the stone the same but make a few cosmetic changes.

We don’t know when the new bed and breakfast will open or what it will be called, but may we suggest Magnolia Mill? It rolls right off the tongue and would sound excellent in their portfolio of properties with Magnolia House and Hillcrest Estate. We can’t wait to book our room when the new property opens.
