So now that I'm in Abu Dhabi and getting more and more settled, I fear that my kids' rooms have been neglected. Furnishing a 3,000+ square foot house takes more money and furniture than I thought. I hate to say it, but in each of my children's huge rooms … there are only beds.
Kid-sized beds at that–which means they are dwarfed by the sheer hugeness of it all.
So am I a bad mom because I want a coffee table more than a nightstand for my son? I guess it all depends on how you look at it.
I'm kind of out of money. I was counting on thrift stores and consignment shops to find fun treasures for our house, but those are unheard of here. Here's my challenge: to furnish the rest of the rooms for little or no money.
Here are some ideas. Feel free to leave comments with your own suggestions.
