Some interesting stories on how DFEi students found their antique pieces to restore. Aodh talks, with a smirk, about the "dodgy" antique dealer her came across in Donegal who sold him the mahogony rocking chair. Sean Freeman is hoping to restore the Singer sewing machine that once belonged to his great grandmother back to its former glory.! and Dara salvaged a "once upon a time" teak tub chair from a skip in her dad's office. Good luck with the restoration work.
