24/7 guidance at your fingertips.

Online. All in one place.

Have you been frustrated trying to learn all the steps to creating beautiful furniture?

    • Spending hours watching insanely long video tutorials and frustrated sifting through all the online info?
    • Struggling to learn new techniques and feeling intimidated when asking for help?
    • Purchasing products and tools you are unsure how to use?
    • Struggling with marketing, not knowing what to do?

Yes! It's not your fault that it's hard to find concise, reliable information online.

I was frustrated myself when I started too, so I created the Blueprint just for you!

    • Over 250 short and to the point videos and written tutorials with tested and accurate information at your fingertips
    • Recommended products listed, linked and pictured for each stage of the process
    • Gain confidence and tap into your inner artist and learn the ins and outs of marketing online

How is Furniture Flipping Blueprint and our Insider's FB PRO Group different?

    • We have an amazing safe community unlike others - no drama!
    • No longer do you need to try to figure it all out alone - everything is at your fingertips, online, 24/7/365.

You are not alone.

From the moment we start learning about furniture redesign, we imagine what it would be like to create beautiful, long lasting and highly sought after furniture pieces. We picture bringing in added income and earning a spot in the world of art.

We imagine receiving hundreds of "Wow", "Beautiful", "Amazing" comments on social media while confidently exchanging our highly coveted pieces of art for wads of bills and a gushing, "Thank you," from our customers.

But what happens when this doesn't happen right away or we run into issues during the redesign process? You start to doubt yourself and wonder if you really have what it takes. Can I ease your mind a bit?

It truly can be frustrating and discouraging when you start out and even when you've been at it for a while. You just need the right tools so you can be a confident, skilled furniture artist.

Furniture Flipping Blueprint is your solution → THE Most Comprehensive Online Membership for Furniture Flippers.

Feeling a lack of confidence isn't fun for anyone.


Val Metallics N Mirrors

When furniture redesigners envision a beautiful piece but have trouble making that vision a reality, frustration and discouragement set in. It doesn't help that hundreds of beautiful pieces are posted online by experienced artists that create in us feelings of intimidation. They are inspiring, but if we just sit there in awe but don't know how to duplicate them, our confidence can be shattered.

We say, "I wish I could do that," and walk away, or spend hours looking for videos to show us how to do the special techniques that bring in the buyers. By the end of our day, we no longer feel like doing anything artsy.

Join us to gain the confidence you need to create amazing furniture art and create a successful furniture flipping business. Become the artist that makes others say, "WOW!".



When you join you will find 25+ modules, labeled and easy to navigate with the different steps you need to take from finding your piece to taking it to market. 1-9 & 11-15 will be available right away, the technique modules are delivered each week for 15+ weeks.

Each redesign module is listed below in order with a detailed description.



MODULE 1 - Most Recommended Products

Stop wasting money - tap into the experience of seasoned flippers and explore our preferred strippers, primers, odor blockers, thinners & cleaners, bonding agents, tools, fillers and more. Photos, links, tips and explanations are all included.


MODULE 2 - Prepping Your Piece to Last

Are those "nonpreppers" right? Do we need to prep our pieces? Have you wondered how to go about cleaning, sanding, stripping, repairing and priming? Dispel all the myths and confusing advice with step-by-step instructions. Learn proper prep and have confidence in the quality and longevity of your product.


MODULE 3 - Repairing Your Piece

Does the thought of repairs stress you out?  The quality of your repairs can make the difference between your piece looking like an amateurish piece or truly professional. I got you covered with product suggestions, how-tos, tips and examples.


MODULE 4 - Got Tools?

Have you ever been frustrated over a project taking longer than it should because you didn't have the right tool? Having the right tool can make the difference between your project taking 5 minutes or hours...and hours. No one wants to spend a boat load of cash thinking they MIGHT want a certain tool - or perhaps you may not even know what's out there.


MODULE 5 - Paint, Stain, Topcoats - Oh My!

Alkyd, latex, chalk, milk paint, mineral paint, so many choices! Oil or water base? Glaze or Stain? How about dyes, top coats, waxes? So many choices can be daunting. Get the inside scoop and save time and money!


MODULE 6 - It's Time to Paint!

Should you use a sprayer, roller or brush? How DO you use a sprayer and when and why? Explore how-to videos on spraying, avoiding brush strokes, tips on using specific paint types, etc. Want to avoid mistakes and gain insider tips? This is THAT module.


MODULE 7 - Stain Your Piece

Learn about the different types of stain, how to prepare your surface for a better outcome with tips along with videos on different ways to stain. You will find specific tips, tutorials and video on how to use Java Gel.


MODULE 8 - Is Top Coating as Scary as it Seems?

The most talked about and questioned step - top coating! This module clears up the confusion. Though preference comes by use, it helps to know the ins and outs of each product and its application. Spraying is also addressed and demonstrated. Your confidence will soar!


MODULE 9 - Don't Be Distressed Over Distressing!

Try several types of distressing, aging or antiquing outlined here to become proficient at creating the different types of looks. Or, find your fave and stick with just one. Most stop at simple sandpaper distressing and don't continue to perfect the other different techniques.


MODULE 10 - Techniques

Do you look at all the great pieces posted online and think, "OH I WISH I COULD DO THAT!" Well you can now - Creating Texture, Dry Brushing, Stenciling, Glazing, and much more, delivered one at a time for 13+ weeks!


MODULE 11 - Specialty Tools, Resources & Products

You might not even know about half of these, but once you use them - voilá! The job just became so much easier! Let's talk about glues, fasteners & clamps, tools for design, specialty brushes, stencil & trims options, online hardware stores, etc.

Lidia Martins @ Vintique Paint Addict

"Val, I appreciate the hard work that you and your family do for me in this group. Your modules are a personal library that give me peace of mind, knowing when I need something, it's all in one spot. and your videos are short and very clear to follow. I can tell you put your heart into us and I personally have grown so much because of you. What other group spends their valuable time and money to sending us little gifts? You're the cat's meow. I appreciate you and all you do for us."


Robin Raible @ Dusty to Divine

"The Blueprint is for people of all levels, especially people starting out because it puts all of the information for you in one place. There is no wondering "What group did I see that in?" or, "Did I save that post?" Val keeps great information all in one place. Then she has the closed [FB PRO] group of people that are an endless resource of support and knowledge. My skill, business and most of all confidence have grown leaps and bounds since I joined."

"I can't imagine where I'd be if it wasn't for this wonderful, kind, brilliant, artistic lady. And the talented, helpful, kind members of this group! Awesomeness!!!!"

RoseMarie Brown @ Furniture Revival

"This group and Val will make your furniture business and or painting hobby one of the best decisions you will ever make. I had a vision that quickly lost its luster with a group I was in prior to meeting Val. The moment I joined this group I was quickly catapulted back on track with my vision for my business. It is a fun group of likeminded women with the perfect leader guiding us to where we need to be...I have definitely received more from this group than I have paid."


Paula Bausworth @ Finds and Redesigns by PaulaB

"The Blueprint has changed my way of thinking. I new enjoy getting into my zone and attempting to be creative. But more importantly, the wealth of information you have right at your fingertips 24/7 AND the comradery in this group is priceless. You won't regret!"

Paula Goldman

Paula Goldman @ Castaways by Paula

"Joining the Blueprint and being mentored by Val Frania continues to be my compass for creating a professional business. Every aspect of growing my business is covered, from techniques to contracts to an online presence. This is a quality "product" made up of experience, knowledge, and good old fashioned know-how. The bonus has been all the other members who are incredibly supportive. Very grateful."

General Questions

FURNITURE FLIPPING BLUEPRINT PRO is a 24/7/365 online membership site where you can learn all things furniture design and marketing, sort of like a course, but it's more like a manual you can access 24/7 with "modules" full of information, both written and video. It is accessed by members from the welcome page where there are links to each set of modules listed by subject. It's along the lines of Netflix, but not for entertainment, for learning and is constantly being updated. You sign on after you enroll and have MONTHLY OR YEARLY when you subscribe, depending on what plan you choose. The annual plan is a one time payment up front. Your credit card is automatically billed the same amount each year even if it goes up in price. You don't have to think about it again and it's there when you need it! Once you enroll you are locked into that price and it will never increase for you as long as you remain a member.

When you enroll into Furniture Flipping Blueprint PRO, you are given FFB PRO as a free bonus, our private Facebook group. It's where we all chat as friends about our projects, ask questions, compare notes, show off our projects. I post challenges and we even occasionally have prizes. We all work together to help advance you toward your flipping goals. This bonus is not available to those choosing FFB Redesign.

If you are in this business to flip pieces, you really can't afford NOT to join! If you want to save time and money, then hop on FFB and get the insider information at your fingertips on FFB 24/7 and then take advantage of our FB group, PRO for support. It's the best way to SAVE money and time. No more guessing how to do things, what is the best product, or even IF you can do this. FFB is the fast track to success. No more frustration or spending hours online when you can be putting out great pieces now. The money you save with the insiders information will pay for FFB PRO over and over.

I suppose that depends! If you want to learn quickly and easily furniture art and marketing, join FFB PRO. If you want to take your time and soak it all in, learning and growing at your own pace, join FFB PRO. If you want to build your confidence as you learn how to turn out great artistic pieces of furniture, join FFB PRO. If you want to learn how to prep right so your piece lasts...if you want to know the trendy styles and expert techniques, join FFB PRO. If you'd like to be surrounded by friends who love the same things you do, then join! DON'T join if you want to just slap on the paint and sell your pieces cheaply and don't care how they last or what your reputation is. We are in it to win it and we want to help you win too.

FFB PRO is a go at your own pace, use it in your own way sort of program. Sure, we want to get to know you, offer our support and wisdom, but there are no requirements. You will get out of it what you put into it. Use it how you see fit and enjoy the ride! We are here to help you in any way you need. FFB PRO is chock full of information that will help you progress as an artist and become a name in your niche - a name that is well spoken of and known for quality pieces. The sky is the limit when you apply yourself and dig into the information to improve your skills. Jump in and realize your dreams!

I set up occasional challenges on our Facebook FFB PRO group for members for two reasons. 1. It's fun to compete for points and earn badges of honor in the group (and sometimes prizes!) and 2. challenging ourselves makes us better artisans. The challenges are a way to progress toward PRO status together, with support and other members cheering us on. We are developing a community of support that can't be found in the larger groups.

Furniture Artisan at K/C ReCreations

"I had the pleasure of meeting Val at the General Finishes Furniture Expo in September 2017. I was surprised at how easy it was to spend time with her, as though I had known her years not days. I am impressed with her desire to learn new techniques increasing her knowledge and her willingness to share that knowledge with others. Her Furniture Flipping Blueprint is a testimony of her desire to share. I had the pleasure of being one of the reviewers of her site. It (FFB) is an excellent site full of information from buying the piece, prepping it, techniques for finishing, staging and marketing and resources related to supplies and where to purchase supplies. There are many informative videos to support the techniques she is teaching. It's a wonderful site that will benefit new furniture flippers and experienced flippers." 


Derrick Lawless

"There are very few furniture artists and custom furniture painters that can keep up with Val on the talent side of things and I doubt anyone can keep up with her on the enthusiasm and energy she brings to her work. I've seen many of her projects and met her recently at a painting expo. She's a wonderful person and top tier talent!"
