DIY Botanical Art Video Tutorial + more house progress

Happy Friday! I can’t believe that today is the last full day of working on my house before I set it free and let someone else call it theirs… *sniffle*

It has been a long and draining week though, and I’m definitely ready to put my drill and paintbrush down and reap the benefits of all the hard work. The warm weather has me wishing I could spend more time outdoors, which inspired my plan for the empty wall in the master bathroom. It was nice to shift gears from hard labor to something more creative and fun—and not to mention, free!

If you follow me on snapchat (@ jennasuedesign) you already know the deal, and I posted this teaser shot on instagram earlier this week:

I’m so happy with the results.

My dad and I also installed these rustic wood shelves, complete with awesome hardware from Silicate Studio that so many of you have been asking about on instagram & snapchat!

Here’s a shot from yesterday after the finishing styling touches:

And a couple older shots from last week, to see how things began to take shape…

All that’s left to do is install the glass panel which will be done tonight! And then lots of pictures for the big reveal post next week. So pumped.

Crazy progress is being made elsewhere in the house. The guest room and downstairs are wrapping up as you read this. Here’s a couple from yesterday morning—it looks so different already..

I don’t think I’ve ever worked this fast or focused in my life, not even during the One Room Challenge, but I know it will all be worth it in the end.

I mentioned this in my last post a couple days ago, but I’m hosting an unofficial open house tomorrow (Saturday) and since I unfortunately can’t fly you all out here, I’ll be shooting a live virtual tour on social media and I’d love for you all to join in! It will definitely be on snapchat, I’ll show as much as I can on instagram, and if I can get Facebook Live working I’d love to do a broadcast there but no promises.

Either way, I’ll have an in depth video tour on the blog soon, and a lot more video in general to come. If you enjoyed today’s tutorial and want to see more, make sure to stay updated by subscribing to my YouTube channel! Thank you again for your support, it means so much to me—especially while trying to make through these long days & nights!

Cheers to the weekend and great things to come,

  1. You are so cute and I love this house! I’ll be sad when you leave it, but am excited to see what else you do. I hope it does include some more home DIY because you are really talented and so inspirational! Your master bedroom inspired my new paint colors and I really swoon over both your bathrooms. They’re gorgeous! Have a wonderful weekend and good luck with the Open House!

  2. Oh man I’d love to see your house in person!! I wish it was here in Dallas so I could snag it myself!! It’s beautiful!! I can’t wait for the reveal!!! And I’m excited for you to get your hard work and money’s worth for the house and I can’t wait to see where your journey takes you next!! Staying tuned…

  3. Jenna,
    As usual, your work is breathtaking! This may be too personal, but why are you selling? I assumed a California home like that may have a super high mortgage for someone to tackle on their own. 🙁

  4. Beautiful !!!! Good luck with the open house, you shouldn’t have any problems with the way everything looks. You belong on HGTV with a show of your own!! You do great work!! Enjoy your blog!!!

  5. Very pretty! Question, does it affect the pieces that the clippings are not dried beforehand? As they dry out, will they stain the paper? Your shower bench is great! (DIY?) Your bathroom is tranquil ☺️

    1. Thank you! I filled a bag of clippings 1-2 weeks before to make sure they’d last and the flowery ones that had a lot of greenery turned brown so I didn’t use those. Some of them were pre-dried flowers as well. Hope this helps!

  6. I’m not sure if someone else mentioned this but maybe try Periscope for another tour feed? If FB Live doesn’t cooperate that is!

  7. Also- love everything, as usual! Your hard work over the last couple weeks has been inspiring and vicariously exhausting ?

  8. This bathroom is so beautiful!! Did you make the vanity or purchase it already with the sink? I’ve been looking into a farmhouse sink for our new house. Love this style!

  9. You my dear I think have found your calling….. videos on all your incredible decorate and remodeling skills! Definately should send in a demo to hgtv! Cheers to a quick sell, and then on to the next remodel! Keep the Diy project videos going…. That should definitely be your next gig…. Your a natural! Good luck!

  10. I just stumbled across your vlog via Pinterest. I love your mix of textures and style. My one question is, on these adorable shelves, how are they attached to the wall besides the hardware? I have similar hardware I picked up at a flea market with no real project in mind. But I do now!!

  11. I really like that the barn door is over the current door frame and trim..I was looking for your tutorial on this but searched and can’t find it. Do u have a convenient link for this? Ps love your style.
