Online Furniture Painting Workshops are self-paced online videos, designed to help you master a “new to you” paint technique so that you can confidently paint your next piece of furniture.
These furniture painting workshops help DIY’ers achieve beautifully painted furniture without the fear of messing up, with the easy self-guided step-by-step video tutorials.
If you are a DIY’er of ANY skill level, or if you need someone to show you how this is an opportunity that I promise you will not want to miss.
This has been a distant dream of mine to be able to reach other DIY’ers like me. I have taught in-person furniture painting workshops at a local store in Hartville Ohio. As much as I loved teaching in person, I can only teach those who are local. So began the dream of teaching others how to paint online.
Learn to Paint Furniture
Are you wanting to learn how to paint furniture and just can’t find the time in your busy schedule to go to a local workshop? Are you frustrated with all the conflicting tutorials on “how–to” or “what products”? Are you eager to learn a new paint technique and afraid you will mess it up?
Let’s face it–there’s nothing more frustrating than painting furniture that looks like a toddler painted it, and to feel like you’ll never learn how to paint and never actually have that beautifully painted statement piece. And there’s nothing more disheartening than spending the time painting–only to hate it and have to paint it again.
You know that you should not be afraid to try a new paint technique. Maybe you’ve even tried and just did not have the proper products and easy tutorials.
Other people make it look so easy. But for you, it’s been anything but. You thought that the hard part was finding the time, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.
And you’re not alone. Most DIY furniture painters are struggling like you.
Truth be told, is that having guided tutorials is a game-changer, one that will SAVE TIME, SAVE MONEY, and even TURN YOU INTO A FURNITURE PAINTER.
The problem? PRODUCT OVERWHELM, CONFLICTING TUTORIALS, and WASTED TIME often make furniture painting more trouble than it’s worth.
But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?
