Hold onto your hammers, “Fixer Upper” fans. Chip and Joanna Gaines are spreading their remodeling mojo beyond the friendly confines of Waco, Texas.

Joanna, the design guru of the perpetually cute twosome, announced a monthly Magnolia Makover contest on her Instagram page that will allow anyone to enter to win a living room or bedroom designed by her.

“With season 3 over, and a ways to go until season 4, I thought it would be fun to host a monthly giveaway where I can redesign a living room or bedroom in your home from right here in Waco, TX!” Joanna wrote on Instragram. “The winner will receive a custom style plan, $1,000 to #MagnoliaMarket, a rug, paint and a piece of furniture from my lines that I’ll select to fit perfectly in your space!”

She will announce the first winner June 15 on her Magnolia Market blog. That’s also where she shared a few details about the show’s fourth season, which is already filming and will begin airing in late fall. The biggest reveal is that “shiplap” is out and “skinnylap” is in.

Mind-blowing, right?

The popularity of “Fixer Upper,” the home design show based in Waco, about 90 minutes south of Fort Worth, is at an all-time high, and the hosts continue to expand their brand. Earlier this month, it was reported that the two had bought the historic Elite Cafe in Waco. No word yet on what the couple will do with the nearly 100-year-old building that closed earlier this year.

Chip, who went to Grapevine High School, and Joanna already oversee a burgeoning empire in Waco, including the Magnolia Market at the Silos, a bed and breakfast called The Magnolia House and a real estate company that sells the couple’s Magnolia Homes.

Episodes of season 3 of Fixer Upper continue in heavy rotation on HGTV.
