How I Met My Home!

Hi, All

Today I'm joining An Nicole at Our Suburban Cottage on "How I Met My Home" its pretty interesting reading all those post.So for today I would like to introduce you to my current home it's a flat(apartment) in a building in the city of Abu Dhabi. I have been living in this building for 11 long years. We first moved in this building in 1999 after having lived in the states for one year; my husband was sent there for military puposes, so when we came back to Abu Dhabi this was our 3rd flat we moved into since we got married. Now fortunately this year we will be moving into our new home which is on the outskirts of the city. For those of you who haven't seen my home and are interested in learning more about my new home just click here . This is the process of the building and here are some more pictures of the advancements and here (just below this post)you can see the painting process and soon I will be posting the continuing process of my home.

Here we go

This is my city.

Abu Dhabi

This is my building, not mine per se but where I live.

Now for a peak at the inside.

This is my current living room (my furniture is 11 years old) all that will go as soon as we move in planning on buying new furniture for the exception of keeping my favorite things.

This is the hallway everything was white but one day I just got tired years living here and I wanted a change so my hallway is a light yellow with a light lime color. When I was painting it I didn't like the green much so I mixed in some more white and yellow and blue and got the color you see in the picture. Way at the end is a chalk board they were mirrors and I just painted them with that chalk board paint.

This is my two daughters (8yr old and a teenager) room

Now this is my two sons room. I just took one angle since their room doesn't have beds. They broke them wrestling and they sleep on matresses only for the time being until we move and get new furniture which is not far. In a month's time.

Well this is been my home for 11 years. The time is getting close to move and I feel I am really gonna miss my flat, but not all the new space I will have.
