How ‘Fixer Upper’s’ Woodwork Designer Clint Harp Went From Flat Broke To TV Stardom
Woodwork designer Clint Harp is living an incredible dream.
You’ll recognize him as the go-to woodwork design guy on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” starring Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Need a new table? A bench? A special design piece?
Joanna just stops by Clint’s shop in Waco, Texas and he creates whatever she needs to make that week’s house perfect.
This is more than a dream come true for Clint.
The Austin Statesman reports he was working in medical sales in Houston and making a very nice six-figure salary.
But he wasn’t living his dream.
In 2011 he quit his job.
He and his wife moved to Waco where he heard about this couple renovating houses.
This was in the days before the TV show.
Clint tried to get an introduction to Chip, but never received a return call.
Then, one day months later, Clint was at a gas station, worrying if he had enough money to pay for the gas when he spotted a Magnolia Homes truck.
Turns out Chip Gaines was also filling up that day.
The two met and a beautiful partnership was born.
They were already busy when HGTV came around with the idea of TV show.
That’s how one man took a chance and went for his dream.
Now Clint and his wife, Kelly, are working on their own show for the DIY Network.
