Make Second Hand Furniture Fabulous!
Look at purchasing a few pieces of furniture from Ebay or local Buy, Swap and Sell Pages. Then buy a few pots of Chalk Paint – this paint is brilliant as you don’t need to sand the furniture first, just give it a coat, sand, then add a waxy coat over the top – and your furniture goes from drab to fab! You can purchase chalk paint from most hardware stores.
Even better if you are handy with a sewing machine and can re-upholder old chair seats etc.
Furniture is always fairly high-demand and by making it look great, you could easily double or triple your money!
