Hello Lovelies!

How many years have you been saying, 

“One day I will learn how to restore that,” and the project sits, or the opportunity is passed by?

"One days" can keep us from doing what we’re capable of today! 


You may look at other designers and think, I can’t do that. It’s beyond me. 

We ALL have to start somewhere, & many can attest that Janet takes intimidating projects and breaks them down into simple steps. 

"LOVE your tutorials! They always make a daunting job doable..."


Even if you’re advanced in your restoration skills, it’s easy to fall into the “one day” mentality. A little pressure to get a project done, and a community to spur you on can help you finish long awaited projects! 



Pass a treasure down as an heirloom or sell it and make a profit doing what you love! 



In our Restoration Challenges, you will not only have the opportunity to start & complete a project, but you will also be submerged in an interactive design environment. 



While our challenge trainings are live streamed daily, you can watch them at any time on demand, review segments and set your own pace!
