brick wall is taking shape

after taking a day off in favor of naps while recuperating yesterday, i'm making brick magic with earth and clay tones, a few at a time..very labor intensive...as most of you know that have tried "break-away brick technique" know..but very rewarding..hubby says no one will see the wall since it will be one of the bookshelf walls, but I will know its there, and parts of it will indeed show~ can't wait to get

project done soon, shelves to be stained soon by hubby partner, the stain we chose turned out darker than i expected, but after the trim goes on i think it will look ok..you can see that i decided to add a bit more bricking on top left to complete the look, also added a bit of plaster around the old maps, what do you think? the bricks look pretty new, next stage is to age them a bit, more tomorrow!
