Painting & Restoring with Right Products and Tools

After 35 years of restoring homes, I have learned what to do and what not to do. Becoming an expert of what is needed to do a project and have it go smoothly is of great value.   How and where to use “better” products is also important.   Why? Because your hard work you just did will last for years. This is why you should know them too. That is why I had professional step by step videos made,  to show you how to restore what you already have. These videos are in sections so you never have to find where you left off. These “easy to follow” videos are more informational than what you will find on the internet.  Years of experience of how not to mess up your project. Lets face it, it’s a big project to take on.

Build your own Kitchen Cabinet Business

Maybe you might want to learn a new skill to seek employment. Or better yet, plan to build your own business refinishing kitchen cabinets.  Because it is a much-needed profession all over the country. People don’t want to buy cheap cabinets from China. You most likely have solid wood right in front of you.   My job has been my passion and it is time for me to pass on what I have learned. I have met the best people through this journey.  It’s been an amazing 35 years. This is the way I can teach, to save others money, show you how to make money by learning a new skill and showing you a fool proof way to make a great living.




Following Jay was a breeze, she was so excited when telling me about how to use colored stain on my cabinets and had amazing insight and details. I have experience with refinishing but without studying up on it or having major experience, I would have never obtained the tips and tricks that she had in her back pocket! Her years of experience shows in her passion and in her work and the outcome of my projects.

I have used the techniques that she has taught me for my wood projects. Her step by step was easy to follow and by following her gave me the confidence I needed. Projects that we did together were of higher quality than the normal paint jobs.

I started working for Jay as a young neighborhood kid looking for extra summer spending money. From Day 1, there was a standard of excellence that was swiftly established and nothing less would do. Between her attention to detail, and step by step processes, I’ve been able to better organize my own jobs, prioritizing and properly creating best work practices that have helped me in every other field I’ve been a part of in my adult life. One can be assured that learning under Jay means a few of the following words: Prompt Dedicated Efficiency without detriment to Quality PASSION: you can see the love that’s been put into the work and the end result speaks highly for itself.

Jay Barnhart trained me beginning with the basics. I learned the tedious processes that Jay developed with prepping and painting not realizing all the detailed work and timely thinking that all went into the restoration of woodwork. Jay was a phenomenal mentor. but the main thing that insured my success was to make sure that I learned the upmost quality to every handmade technique implemented to each clients home ensuring the most quality work for our client. This all helped build my appreciation that Jay has for the art.. The end result was witnessing clients faces as their kitchen transformed into their new kitchen they designed themselves.
