You DO want to learn the marketing too?... scroll down to the bottom and you'll find information on how you can join FURNITURE FLIPPING BLUEPRINT PRO - the best (and quite possibly the only) comprehensive online manual for furniture flippers.

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. 12 will be available right away, the technique modules are delivered each week for 15+ weeks.
Each is listed below in order with a detailed description.
ARE YOU LOOKING TO ADVANCE YOUR SKILLS AND BECOME CONFIDENT?
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

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."
Sandy K. Young
"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 @ 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."
FURNITURE FLIPPING BLUEPRINT is an online membership site, 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 the streaming movie sites, but not for entertainment, for learning. You sign on after you enroll and have access for a month or a year, depending on which plan you sign up for. If you join the annual, at the end of the year your credit card is automatically billed the same amount 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.
FFB - Redesign is for those who only want to learn redesign and don't feel the need for marketing help. It's your way of getting your foot in the door to learn furniture art and minimize your financial commitment.
Furniture Flipping Blueprint - PRO is available for you if you desire access to mentoring, an exclusive online tribe, how-to marketing modules, and a library packed full of extra training. You'll find a button at the bottom to find out more or email me at Val@Valfrania.com is you have questions.
If you are wanting to learn both REDESIGN AND MARKETING, scroll to the bottom to find FFB PRO and join that instead of just the FFB REDESIGN. FFB PRO includes marketing.
If you are interested more in a social type of group, Furniture Flipping Forum is a good place to land. If you would like weekly+ videos featuring just the basics of redesign in a social atmosphere where you can ask questions, then Furniture Flipping Basics is a good place to be, especially for new furniture artists. It's a smaller more intimate group great for beginners or those who want to revisit the basics of furniture redesign. You are welcome to join both or either.
FFB PRO members have a private FB group.
If you are wanting to become well versed in all things redesign, 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 one of the FB groups 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 being an accomplished furniture artist. 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 over and over.
I suppose that depends! If you want to learn quickly and easily, join FFB REDESIGN or FFB PRO. If you want to take your time and soak it all in, learning and growing at your own pace, join either FFB membership. If you want to build your confidence as you learn how to turn out great artistic pieces of furniture, join one of the FFB memberships.
