The wall behind the table is my bulletin board wall. A few years ago we made giant push-pin boards that basically cover the whole wall so I have lots of room to pin things up. The little jam-jar on the table holds my thumbtacks so the cat won't eat them by mistake. I got the table for 8 dollars at a garage sale. It's very fancy and shiny looking so naturally it goes with nothing else in the room, which is just the way I like it.
