I have to admit that I am exhausted!  I just returned (literally less than an hour ago) from Toronto and being at the Fusion Furniture Flipping Expo.  Despite the weariness, I just couldn’t wait to tell you a bit about the Expo because it – was – amazing!Fusion Mineral Paint Furniture Flipping ExpoThis was the first Furniture Flipping Expo that Fusion has done and it was incredible.  There was so much information packed into two days my mind is still whirling.

There were amazing guests, hands-on projects, demos, prizes, product launches, panel discussions and oh so much more.

Even though I have been recreating furniture for a long time, write about paint and dream about painting there was still so much to learn and so much info to walk away with. Fusion Mineral Paint foldersThe Expo was filled with…

I can’t begin to tell you how informative and just plain old good this Expo was.  If you have the chance to go (they are bringing them to other cities by the way!) I would highly recommend it.  You won’t be disappointed! Fusion Mineral Painted candle holderNow I need to blow out the candles ;), get some sleep and process all of the info swirling in my head.  In the next few weeks I will share some projects with a few new products that I picked up as well as be testing out some amazing new-to-me brushes!  I will be sure to share and if you ever want more info or to chat about the Expo, just drop me a line!

Nighty night.
