Samuel and I got up early this morning and drove to Quakertown, Pennsylvania to pick up a drafting table and drafting lamp we won on eBay last week. Samuel and Ethan have outgrown the tiny desk and chairs from Ikea that have served as their work space for the past eight years. We decided a vintage drafting table was the proper replacement.
Our father-son trip included lunch at a 5-and-dime luncheonette before heading back to the city. It's never too cold for a milkshake.
A little furniture polish, and it looks good...a grown-up desk for a grown-up boy.
