Title: The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk Pooklet Expansion Set


To expand The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk Recovery Project, based on Michelle's Pooklet textures in three different configurations. This set of recolours were previously released as part of Ye Olde Cooper's Merchant Guild Set for the Plumb Bob Keep Guild Wares 2 Contest.

The FreeTime "Broken-In" Desk is available from the Surfaces/Desk catalogue section for §70 each.


Of all the EA desks, the simple structure and separated cabinet allows this unit to be recoloured to look the most convincingly pre-modern (or post-modern). Sourced from eight of Michelle's Pacific Board textures, I have included a total of 32 Pooklet recolours for the drawer fronts and three configurations of the desk: "No Cabinet" (just the four-legged desk), "With Palette" (and T-Square), and "With Cabinet" (the original style). In addition, an invisible drawer front recolour supports the "No Cabinet" and "With Palette" recolours in which the cabinet itself is invisible. I would consider that the No Cabinet and With Palette models will provide the most effective antique look.
