Living in a 2-bedroom home with two kids can be challenging. They’ve been sharing for years now, but it just seems unfair to force them to continue, so we are giving our daughter our bedroom and our son will take over completely the one he’s been sharing with her. We have moved into the room that has sort of served as an office (we call it “the computer room”).
I have this amazing Mayline Desk-o-Matic IV drafting table that I’ve been using to draw The Moose Riders on–it was passed down to me from my father who used it for years as a draftsman/mechanical engineer. The table is great, but way too freaking big for our house, especially now that we are moving into the room where it used to reside. The frustrating thing is, I wasted that table for most of the time that I owned it–it just sat there as a surface to collect junk mail. I’ve probably used it more in the last 8 months than I did in the first 17 years I owned it.
So now I’m faced with the task of trying to unload this massive table that I don’t really want to get rid of in the first place AND find a Murphy bed to replace it with. An even trade would be ideal. Hoping I can stick a smaller drawing board on the Murphy bed while it’s in its non-bed state. Heading to Craig’s List now.
