monday mess * my 2nd desk


monday mess arrow


here is a confession.  i have not one desk in my bedroom but two.  have you heard of such a thing?  one desk in a bedroom is a debatable topic, but two?  it all started because i switched out my desk for a parsons desk  i had sitting in another room.  only problem is, that i had no where to put my old desk (pictured).  so i scooted it to the other side of the room.  and there she sits.


i used it a lot while i was crafting for my anthro event (will share pictures of that this week) and decided i kind of like having it for non-computer work, like listing, studying and writing.  in fact, i did a little of that this morning.  rain falling, starring out the window and doodling this . . .


i don’t suppose i can keep two desks in my room forever but maybe one day someday when i have a studio i’ll have a few desks going.  i can’t let go of this old desk.  it used to me my dad’s (i painted it, as you can see) and it means a whole lot to me.  and for now,  some days, i just pretend this is my little studio.

p.s. a peek at my other desk + my desk super clean + super messy

    Haha, I love this! Actually my house is about the size of someones’ bedroom so I know how you feel having two desks in your bedroom! Only wish I could find a way to keep it tidier :) Your bedroom is gorgeous!
