I'm here to help you grow as an artist and marketer...

Hi. I'm Val Frania.

As we raised our family of 15 kids, frugally and the do-it-yourself lifestyle became second nature. DH (dear hubby) and I focused on being self-sufficient and creative as we raised our family and determined to have a lifestyle of service to others. Today we share our experience and knowledge online through blogs, social media and the our furniture flipping membership, Furniture Flipping Blueprint. 

It is our belief that we should always be learning, reaching, challenging ourselves. With encouragement from my teaching mentorship and a tribe of like-minded artists, you will have the opportunity to advance your artistic skills, reaching beyond yourself to grow into a better you. You'll embrace your own personal style and find your passion. With effort and determination, you will find yourself growing into a skillful confident entrepreneur, ready to share your art with the world with confidence and boldness.

The Blueprint, an online 24/7/365 manual, teaching and demonstrating with over 140 how-to videos A - Z Furniture Flipping from redesign to marketing...every step start to finish.

For years I've pursued more, desired to learn more, pushed myself to experience more.  My self-taught skills of graphic design, photography, writing, website building, special needs teaching and parenting. etc. gives me the understanding and the edge to support you and your goals in creative ways. With experience in home renovation, DIY furniture redesign and refinishing, upcycling, repurposing, gardening, prepping and landscaping, I am ready to lend my experience to you to help you grow in every area.

Do you dream of having a thriving business?

What have you learned today? This week? This year? Whether you're wanting to move from hobbyist to entrepreneur or you've been at this for a while, the Blueprint is your key to growing a more successful furniture flipping business.

As I learn, I teach. It's who I am because of the life I've lived. I hope you will let me share all that I've learned with you...and maybe let me push you just a bit to become a better you?

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

How does the Blueprint work? Is it a course? How do I pay for it?

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 Netflix, but not for entertainment, for learning. You sign on after you enroll and have access for a year when you subscribe (GOLD plan). The Gold plan is a one time payment up front that gives you 12 months of the Blueprint for the price of 10 and then 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. 

What is FFB PRO? Is it FREE?

When you enroll into Furniture Flipping Blueprint, 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 the Independent Study Blueprint plan.

What if I can't afford FFB?

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 over and over.

Am I the right fit for FFB? Is FFB right for me?

I suppose that depends! If you want to learn quickly and easily, join FFB. If you want to take your time and soak it all in, learning and growing at your own pace, join FFB. If you want to build your confidence as you learn how to turn out great artistic pieces of furniture, join FFB. 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. 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.

Do I have to participate in FFB PRO or do the challenges when I join FFB?

FFB PRO and really, FFB itself 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 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!

What are these challenges you keep talking about?

I set up monthly challenges on our Facebook FFB PRO 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.

Lucretia Waldbuesser

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!"

Have You Wondered Where You Fall on the Path to Success?

Below you will find the Success Path that I give to my Blueprint Members when they join. It will give you a glimpse into what we do and talk about on our FB PRO group. Join the Blueprint and it will help you fast-track your journey to being a furniture flipping PRO!

Success Path

Want to know more about me?

Michele Corwin, CEO Retique It, and I had a chat not long ago about the furniture flipping business, how and why I got started and where we think it's headed.

So sorry it's really long. But we so enjoyed talking about this business and the ins and outs of it all and thought maybe you might like to listen in. If you've got a cup of coffee and a little bit of time to waste (44 minutes), come join us and find out who I REALLY am and get to know both of us just a little bit better. I promise I'm not boring. Not even a little bit.

Besides, if you know who I am, perhaps you'll trust me enough to join my Blueprint. I promise that when you do, you'll love it.
