This is the desk in Mr. Brick's study. I like how nice and masculine it all looks with the photo of a beloved, the guns, the box of cigars to the left, magnifying glass and letter holder (of which I made all but the guns).
I also made the desk out of matboard and faux-finished it. The chair which can't be seen too well is one of my balsa wood and toothpick creations from my teenaged years - so - very - long - ago - now.
Here is another picture showing a bit more of the same scene, I made the portfolio also:
And last is a tantalus and two bottles of wine which usually sit in the back of the study but which I propped up in the master bedroom to get a picture of them. The wine bottles were cheap wooden ones I painted black using acrylic gloss, gold on the tops and stuck labels on them. The tantalus I made 2 of and fashioned from beads and bits of wood. They look good enough in the back of a room!
