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!

Where to Buy Second Hand Furniture:

There are actually loads of great places to look such as:

  • Ebay
  • Gumtree
  • Local Facebook Buy Swap and Sell Pages
  • Trading Post
  • Advertise in local newspapers
  • Thrift Stores
  • Garage Sales

Where to Sell Your Furniture:

You can look at selling your furniture at local markets, Etsy, Ebay, Gumtree, advertise in your local newsletters or even approach furniture stores in your area to see if they will sell your products on commission!
