wonderful film about old folk furniture coming back to life

This is a real triumph of film making and story telling.  I love the old furniture, I love the stories and the people. I dislike the hard gloss paint at the end but then maybe that is just moving with the times? I would love to see these pieces with a nice soft milk paint or linseed oil based paint with natural pigment or at the very least some soft earthy toned eggshell from Farrow and Ball. Great entertainment though.

    Lovely! Have you seen the book "Irish Country Furniture" Claudia Kinmonth?It includes notes and pictures about small stuff – the 'Mether' carved wood mug etc

    What a marvellous little film, not surprised to see it was done at Sundance Studios. It was filmed beautifully. And what amazing pieces of furniture, and the stories behind them all too. Loved it
