Todd has managed to make $5,500 in sales in the past four months and he doesn’t show any signs...

2018 Flipping Challenge Recap 2018 was a good year to be a flipper. We had a ton of great flips and managed to finally travel the 600 miles up the 127 Yard Sale this past summer.

Then take that amount of money and...

I posted my spray painted fabric chair on Facebook about 5 months ago and got a lot of questions on how I did it. I have been meaning to write up a step-by-step tutorial based on what I did, but somehow it slipped through the cracks.   But not today! :) Before I jump into what I did to the chair, I have...
