I teach you how to find OUTDATED and unloved FURNITURE and turn it into ART, and then into CASH!

Hi. I'm Val Frania.


45 years as a wife, 40 years as a parent, and 30 years as a teacher cultivated in me frugality, balance and uncommon determination. Common is boring. "More" is my status quo - more for my family and more for others - more for you. There is no time to stand still. Quitting is not an option. Helping you find your inner artist so you can change the world around you is my premier goal...one piece at a time.


The best education is experience. Viewing life practically with a desire for self-sufficiency encourages learning as the need arises. Being self taught in graphic design, portrait and still photography, writing, website building, special needs teaching and parenting, gives me the edge to support you and your goals. I have gained know-how in home renovation, DIY furniture redesign and refinishing, marketing, upcycling, repurposing, gardening, prepping and personal development. As I learn, I teach. It's who I am.

Are you ready to step up from the level from "CRAFTER" to "ARTIST"? Take it from a HOBBY to a BUSINESS?


I'm Here to Help.

It's never too late to get started designing your dream home or starting your own furniture redesign business.

Along with our paid options of Furniture Flipping Blueprint memberships to learn redesign, we have tons of free options as well.

Or, you can come to our store, The Red Shed, to find one-of-a-kind furniture to create a unique warm and loving home.

Want to get your feet wet and try out a course or two? If you are not ready to go "full-out furniture redesigner" or would like to dabble just a bit in furniture art, then a course may be the right choice for you.

I have priced them well below market value as an incentive for those who want to get started, well, to get started! Tackling one piece of furniture to see if you enjoy the process, the right process, not the typical slap some paint on a piece of furniture and call it good, might be the ticket you need to gain a little confidence.

Other Opportunities

We like to share things like good news, canned grape jelly, stories, good deals and our time. We also like to share opportunities that we've come across that might benefit others. Why keep good things to ourselves when others can benefit, right?

So below I've listed some opportunities that might make your life easier, better and maybe even a little bit more fun...

But most of all, we strive to be a blessing to you. Email me at Val@ValFrania.com if you have any questions or just would like to introduce yourself. We all could use more friends!

An Online, Private Community for Women of Faith

Come join TALK TO ME, a private non-Facebook community for women of faith. Often entrepreneur women who work from home find it very ISOLATING and even LONELY. Of course this doesn't just pertain to entrepreneurs, but that happens to be the group I'm in. We have young moms, wives, widows, empty nester moms, and singles. Did I miss anyone?

Some of the groups within the community include health, recipes, fur babies, grandkids, etc. We even have a group for politics, if that's your fancy.

This is the place where we can "let our hair down" and talk about things in a more PRIVATE SPACE than what other platforms allow. Click the poster and come watch my explanation video with all the deets.

Come join us and become a part of this new and growing community. Help us shape it to fit who we are! Join TTM here: ValFrania.com/TalkToMe - Use the code TTM10OFF to get first month free.


Believe it or not, I have a MOM BLOG that I created many moons ago to help other SPECIAL NEED ADOPTIVE families get through tough times. It's called Mom of Many.

I've not posted on it in a long time because we are now empty nesters. But I wanted keep it available for others who might benefit from our experience RAISING A BIG FAMILY, most of which were special needs adopted. It's full of suggestions and encouragement.

More from ValMark Services - that's us!

We also offer personal services for you and your family. Yes, we're very busy looking for ways to benefit those we care about. Check them out and see if any of the services below fit into your life. What can I say? We have our fingers in many pies and want to share!


We are putting ourselves out there online and busy marketing our products. What if someone steals our identity and throws us in a personal tailspin? I have a solution - click the link to find out more! Both DH and I use IDSeal for both family and business identity protection. Along with, comes virus protection for our devices. These days, you can't be too careful.

Those of us who are entrepreneurs are online and most vulnerable to hackers. In the last 6 months, and before we had IDSeal, we've had our credit card number stolen. In business my Instagram was hacked and 4-5 years worth of posts were deleted.

Just last week my website, Love My DIY Home, was hacked by someone in Indonesia. I was fortunate to get each one resolved. My websites fight 50+ bots a day trying to get in. IDSeal not only watches your finances, but also your social media for irregularities. And more - go take a look!

Have you thought about what would happen if your identity was stolen? Nightmare. Unless of course you have a company like IDSeal to protect and resolve if necessary. Go HERE to take a look.
