My wonderful lady and I renovated my office/smoking room. Totally demo'ed a horrible 70s wood-panel closet, patched the plaster where it once stood, replaced moldings, and painted. Slow going as this is as humid/rainy as it's been.

She is very handy and did 90% of the non-painting work, and what's more, found this amazing thrfit-store hutch for all my pipes & tobacco.

More pics of the new-old desk, and me looking bummy in this Flickr set. I am a lucky and entirely underserving SOB.

Ceiling still needs a new color, and the curtain rods are "on order" (they're second-hand from her mother and we'll get 'em when next we truck up to Maine. The price is right!) Might paint the radiator, too. My leather club chair will join the room out of storage soon. We're getting there!

SP, The lady was working the camera, and quite refused to be photographed covered in paint, primer, and plaster dust as she was. Cool

Mark, that's backing the original 1920 horsehair plaster! It was pretty close to the point where we were going to have to wreck the whole thing and hang drywall, but we used the saws-all and crowbar veeerry gently.

Those tins are American Scotch snuff tins, freebies from NictotineRush--I love the design on them, straight out of early 20th c. industrial.

I need to figure out where to position the cumpture speakers. Times like these, I'm grateful I'm not an audiophile--I'd have no $$$ left for pipes!

Very Nice Doc! Great looking Den. I posted some pics of my den in the "Wanted Pics of your smoking den" thread, but I figured out later that the thread was like a year old. I'll post some pics in my own thread.

Exactly! Mrs. Manhattan is a wood and product shop tech, so she runs the handywork for the house. Hell, she built the bed I'm sitting in.

Bringing back this thread because at long last, my smoking room is finished! Coat of paint on the ceiling, curtains, some art (including a print by Valky!) and we're in business.

Very nice! That looks like a great place to work or relax. It's scorching in L.A. right now, I would trade for that view of fall leaves and rain in a heartbeat!

Dig that clock behind you, Harlock, as well as the axes. (My guitbox is in the next room over... the office is nice but it's not that large.)

It looks like this guy guarding my cigars would be right at home in your space, too:

Hey Bruins, thanks! Old people have the best stuff! My dad still has junk from the 30's-70's, stuff that's hard to find now, or expensive if you can find it. Only thing is to keep the stuff from running your life. It's a hard battle...I think I'm losing.

And Tiki's wearing fezzes? don't even get me started...

Oh, and unfortunately I had to dismantle my room, box up everything and put it all in storage Crying or Very sad
