It was then picked up by Country Living and featured on the cover of design books, which catapulted her career in interior design. 


HGTV reached out to her for the first time for hosting the show Fixer Upper. However, her first husband was not keen to be on TV. So Leanne Ford parted ways with HGTV, which later on found Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines to feature on Fixer Upper.
