100 TIPS Video Poster

ALL LEVELS

Have you ever had trouble sleeping because something is bugging you? Have you ever run into a furniture redesign issue that drove you nuts because you couldn't figure it out?

I have. I watched all the videos, asked all the questions, tried so many different methods and fallen asleep thinking about it and woke up the next morning thinking about it. Once a method dogged me for two weeks until I figured it out!

Well, no more. Know why? Because I've spent YEARS researching and trying out methods and techniques and then have shared them with my Blueprint members so THEY don't have to fall asleep and wake up frustrated.

Now I'm sharing a lot of my tips with you - some in video, some in a short slide show. As an added bonus, the 100 Random Furniture Flipping Tips PDF is included.
