Secretary Desk

I have a confession. I would love to get rid of my huge wooden mahogany desk and replace it with a nice small secretary desk. I could organize the pigeon holes, place a laptop on top and be instantly organized! It sure would save space in my tiny 1350 sq ft home. Of course, this will never happen for where would I put the mounds of things that appear and stay on my desk top? It's a nice dream - a girl can dream can't she?

I rescued this little white table from a junk pile today. I love the way it was cut and constructed. True the back leg is warped and I have to prop it against the deck railing, but I still think it has some years left in it. I love the way it is weathered - very shabby chic. I put a rusted wire bowl, also rescued from the junk pile, a plant, and a little wooden rocking chair. I like the way it all looks together. I think I will get some oilcloth and make a runner for the table - or, maybe, I will just use some regular material. It looks nice on my deck.
