I'm really glad that Jenna Sue is redoing another house, but looking at that place, I feel like she may have gotten in over her head. It's a BIG house and it needs a ton of work. I also don't get redoing it only on the weekends. It's going to take forever if everything has to wait until she has time to get up there.

I really hate what she did to those closet doors. They look better than the dated wooid but those Xs don't even go to the tops or bottoms of the doors. They are just kind of floating oddly in the middle of them. I don't think it looks any more modern than the old ones. It just looks like a nicer version of 70s doors

I mean, I like the look of the new closets, I think it looks nice, but it wasn't necessary. I think just painting them would have been enough.

Basically, I think the doors was a really weird starting choice for a house that needs EVERYTHING. To me, those are details that come later.

^Agreed painting them was enough, adding the little moulding strips was overkill. I know they were cheap, but srsly, spend your money on stuff that matters.

 

There are no excuses for this monstrosity though:

I do NOT get her priorities. She spends HOURS and hours dicking around on these itty bitty projects when she has an enormous house to flip and only a few short hours each week to work. She could go and buy something off the shelf that would still be neat and unique and not cost a fortune, and take a fraction of the amount of time. It's a flip house, it doesn't have to be perfectly her style. Also, that "desk" is ugly and doesn't look like it's going to go well.

I don't understand her hardware choices for this house. The cheap looking doorknobs and cabinet pulls with extra "frill" look so cheesy.

I guess she just wants to do something different. idontknow

I hate both of the wall stencils she used.  Maybe I should save judgment until the full reveal, but for now, that dusty rose paint is puke

The stencils are … okay. 

But, it looks like the base coat white was painted OVER the old wallpaper?? Is that a thing? It just seems janky to me.

If you look at the before pix (to see the wallpaper that was there), then look at one of her close-ups where you can see she took the corner moulding off, you can see the same pattern.

It sure looks like she painted over the wallpaper. I wondered when she showed the house tour, why she would buy a house with so much wallpaper. It's freakin' expensive to pay someone to remove all that wallpaper, and it's a PITA to remove it all yourself. I know, because we bought a house full of wallpaper when we didn't know any better. There's still 2 rooms left with wallpaper … 12 years later! I would never buy a house where someone painted over the wallpaper. Jenna Sue, stop it, stop it now, and find another solution to dealing with the wallpaper.

I appreciate her design aesthetic and the work she does, but her style is so specific. I worry that she designs this "flip" to such a specific buyer. I personally don't really like the shabby chic look, and if I were to look at this house, when finished, I would see it as a huge project or just move on. So, I wonder if that will hurt her on the resale? And, she buys all this furniture and decorations specifically for the house, it seems. What happened to all the decorations and furniture from her last house? Why not use that stuff? And, what would she do with all the furniture and decorations she buys for this house?

I can't tell if Jenna didn't remove the wallpaper or just kept it up in the corners where the trim would cover. 

 

I don't know why she's freaking out to get this flip done in 5 weeks. I know she mentioned a photoshoot but why the push and stress? Also, if this is your goal then LIVE there, do more yourself and don't go on vacation!

I'm ready for Jenna Sue to move to the regular section of GOMI. She's no longer a SOMI for me.

This house…I don't get what she's doing. And I loved her style in the last place. She's rushing and slapping shit together and I don't understand why she's living so far away and trying to make this flip happen. Everything is just so bad. Maybe she will shock me and it will turn out amazing, but…My expectations are low.

I went back and looked at the comments for the stencil post, and they did paint over the wallpaper:

Did you have a post where you discussed how you removed the wallpaper? I recently moved into a home that has a decent amount of it. We’ve tackled a few rooms already but still have the hallway and stairs to do, which I’m dreading!

Hi Valerie, the walls were primed and painted over — no one would even attempt to remove them in this house
