I have been working at a furniture repair shop for tha past few months and doing lawn work on the side. It recently just hit me that there is LOTS of money in refinishing furniture. If your comfortable with offering refinishing services to induviduals, There is an easy $400-$600.00 for average sized table! Another women I know, drives around every wednesday night (garbage night) and gos to garage sales every saturday morning. She finds really cheap furniture and refinishes it, repairs it, repaints it, and she makes a really nice return on them. Just something I had on my mind and will be giving a shot. There is a big demand for it all over the place and very good money and doesnt require lots to get started.
