“Renovation knowledge is crucial to anyone who is serious about revamping their interior. Auction hounds should invest in a weekend furniture restoration course run by Nigel Barnes  and Pepie O’Sullivan of Oldchairs. Based near Kilrush, Co Clare, the two-day course is designed to teach you how to turn tired furniture into new and improved pieces.

We can’t run enough courses to cope with demand, says Barnes. “Most people come with a project in hand,” he says. This helps galvanise enthusiasm and Barnes has many repeat students. The weekend course costs €195 and includes materials and lunch on both days.
