Welcome Future Furniture Painters! 

Congratulations on taking this step in your creative endeavor! 

Your lessons are listed below. Work at your own pace, and watch each video as many times as you like. If possible, gather the products you'll need and work right along side me with a small piece of furniture, such as a stool, magazine rack, large picture frame, or even small end table. 

I go over the products in Lesson 1: Tools of the trade, and I have a shopping list right here on my website.

If anything is unclear, please feel free to send me an email so I can help you along.

Good luck, and remember to have fun!
