Furniture Flipping Blueprint
→ YOUR FAST TRACK TO SUCCESS ←
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.

Eliminate the Guesswork
Hi. I'm Val Frania, and I'm here to help you succeed.
Experience needs to be shared. As we raised our family of 15 kids many years ago, we became aces at saving time, money and effort. That experience came full circle when we developed a coaching program specific to furniture flippers in our 24/7/365 online manual, Furniture Flipping Blueprint. We share our experiences and knowledge with you of not only furniture redesign and marketing, but of life in general to help you succeed.

INTRODUCING "THE BLUEPRINT"
When you join you will find 15+ modules, labeled and easy to navigate with the different steps you need to take from finding your piece to taking it to market.
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
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 12+ 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.

It's Good to Have a Tribe...
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. My skill, business and most of all confidence have grown leaps and bounds since I joined."
RoseMarie Brown @ Furniture Revival
"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 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. You won't regret!"
Sandy K. Young
"I can't imagine where I'd be if it wasn't for this wonderful, kind, brilliant, artistic lady. Awesomeness!!!!"
Have More Questions?
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. 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.
If you enroll in the Blueprint Basic, your membership is also for a year, but only for modules 1-11, with a one time payment up front and is also automatically billed the same amount each year even if it goes up in price. You may upgrade to the GOLD plan if you decide you want to other amenities that come with that plan.
When you enroll into Furniture Flipping Blueprint's GOLD or SILVER plan, 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.
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.
For those who want the option to only grow their redesign skills, the Blueprint Basic plan is available.
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.
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!
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.
