Ben Napier Revealed What He Believed to Be ‘a True Test of a Marriage’ in 2020
While speaking to BUILD Series in January 2020, Ben and Erin Napier gave fans some insight into their relationship. Ben noted that before being HGTV stars, he and his wife renovated their “first two homes together” in Laurel, Mississippi, where “Home Town” is filmed. He explained that Erin and he initially lived frugally because he has “a history degree and she has an art degree and those don’t translate to a lot of money.” Ben then suggested that there are two aspects of home renovation that have been points of contention for the couple.
“We had lived in renovations, we had done them together, and we always say that a true test of a marriage is painting a room together or hanging curtains together,” said the 37-year-old.
Erin agreed with her husband and asserted that “hanging curtain is rough.”
“Somebody’s gotta do the watching and somebody’s gotta do the doing,” explained the mother-of-two.
Ben then chimed in that he and his wife have disagreed about the placement of curtains.
“They have to be level, but level is open to interpretation if you’re married to an artist,” quipped the HGTV star.
During the interview, Ben also discussed how he became a professional woodworker. He explained that while his “parents are United Methodist ministers,” his father is “also a decent mechanic,” meaning that he learned to be handy. The father-of-two went on to say that he built frames for Erin for one of her art courses in college.
“He was hanging out with the guys in the sculpture room and learning how to do the woodworking and with the saws and so he built my frames,” said Erin.
She then revealed that he also built her a replica of a “$3,000 antique armoire” when they were first married.
“So we built that and from then on, I always approached woodworking from like the fine carpentry side and so it just developed more and more and more,” said Ben.
