My name is Ryan and I've been a professional painter since 2001. I started in production painting where I painted 5+ townhomes a day. In 2004 I started my own business and painted new construction, commercial and offered pre-finishing services. In 2012 I decided to niche down and offered cabinet refinishing services and furniture refinishing. Today I try to share all of the painting how-to knowledge I've learned as well as the painting business and marketing knowledge I can here on DIY Painting Tips.
