Bacons big reveal party


Welcome one and all to my good friend Bacon’s big reno reveal!

Boy what a ride and we all know the ‘joy’ of reno’s..they are one of the most stressful things a normal person can do…well normal may not be the word!

Bacon has been through a huge change at his place and after many years of either bad health or work it was time to refresh..oddly you have to semi kill yourself to get refreshed!

I understand only too well..the last house we had it was the bathroom dude from ACME bathrooms…may as well have been..note to self we can build a better bathroom…just sayin..

I have smashed old fibro cement walls out and nearly discombobulated myself in the process..i have spent so much time pulling old 60’s tiles of bathroom and laundry floors that i started to actually see the face of Jesus in them..seriously..drove me mad..i have painted until my feet and fingers were about to drop off..had they done so i would not still be waging war on the painting of the fences here by brush..urghh..

Here we have pulled out a kitchen.,..yes it was a treat…some pics of the festive event..

How's that colour..

Urghhh

Yep..a beaut..

Of course Doc and Forrest played the part of tradies assistant..when Phil went to work i took over...i will never look at slate the same way..

Well we survived here..barely..and still have a main bathroom and ensuite to do..all the flooring which has split due to drought..and the bedrooms need painting and reflooring..the list goes on..so while we have a rest let us all have a bit of a celebration and salute the latest reno achievers.

I know Bacon and his family have culled until they could cull no more and decluttering is so therapeutic..so in celebration of this great reveal..i invite you all to grab the stuff you want to declutter and throw it on the bonfire!

Go for it folks!

Go for it folks!

Oscar will help he loves a good bonfire…and i know Bacon has some great food at his place for his reno reveal party but also we have here some grub..so grab some and head to Bacon’s with a plate..

My homemade Macarons..

And since Bacon Loves Apples..grab some of these to take ..

Delish!

Delish!

And i would be remiss as a co-host if i did not offer some of prize winning Apple Pie..yes it did NOT win this year although in a strange turn of events i did receive a certificate in the mail for best decorated Apple pie..

Hot and delish folks

Now you all enjoy Bacon’s Southern Hospitality and go enjoy the new reveal..a long time coming and well worth all the hard work !

Hugs Fozziemum

  1. Reno work must be EXHAUSTING but soooooo worth it in the end (after you recover of course!). I’ve never renovated anything (other than my life a time or two) so I know this had to be a ton of work for you and Phil AND I know Bacon’ family has been through heck with their project too. Meanwhile, I’ve just GOT to grab some of those beautiful macaroons, maybe a wedge of pie, and while I may break a tooth on a toffee apple, it looks like it might be worth it!

    Hugs, Pam (and Sam)

  2. I love the new Hotel Thompson and I’m so happy with Bacon and his furmily that the diy-time is over and they can enjoy all this fabulous new things….
    I sent a silent ARRRROOOOO to the sky as I saw the removing of the old tiles… mark rented a floor stripper and forgot to close the door as he started this monster… fortunately he maneuvered the beast over the wire and cut it off… butt I’m sure we still have this white dust everywhere :o( why we cant hire a fairy who ca do all diy with some wagging of her magic wand? the world is NOT fair… hmmm.. Macarons need “eau de vie” right? well then I take a bucket of this magic drink :o)

    • I agree The Hotel Thompson looks like a place i cold really relax and enjoy a glass of champers πŸ™‚ they have deserved this indeed.Oh the floor cutter thing..we could not use it here…they had this slate and it was lumpy and uneven.drove me mental..it is in the main bathroom too..a crowbar and elbow grease…urghhh a nightmare…at least we have the gorgeous tiles from the kitchen left over to do the bathroom..but it means pulling the claw foot tub out..a huge heavy beast which they cheaply recoated and now had chips and bubbles in it…urghhh so indeed Macaron up..they only took me forever to get right hahhaha but hey all good things come to he who waits πŸ™‚ loves Fozziemum xx

        • Hahahaah well when i had to strip paint from our old windows at the other house i used a chemical paint peeler and a scaper..flicked it all over my arms and burnt them good..so i changed to the hot gun..which melted it off and flung it on my arms to stick to the other burns..then because i was tired i pointed it in the wrong direction and let’s just say the guy who bought the house ( and was super stubborn about the price even after we spent 3 thousand dollars on a new garage door) has two crack on either side of the very large and expensive to replace front bedroom window :)..bravo…:) ..must look in the directory for the Suzi Q handyman haahaha πŸ™‚

  3. Awesome food – stuffing my piggy mouth with apples and those fabulous looking macaroons. Oh my!! Renovations are a time-consuming-throw-yourself-off-the-nearest bridge kind of activity. So glad we both have ours behind us now. I’m going to take a refresher on my chaise – want to join me with a glass of bubbly? XOXO – Bacon

  7. Wow Bev! Those macaroons look amazing. You are one really good cook! We finished our renos last Friday with the placement of our new roof. From here on in it is just normal maintenance not ripping out, cutting out ,or throwing out. That bon fire would have been handy. It was great for the boy because he discovered skills he didn’t know he had. I will show him your post and I know he will relate. He got very tired in the process and of course if it has to be done, it has to be done now! He stayed up late many nights to be ready for the builders in the morning. He was a cheerful, willing worker though but was “over it” by the end. (ME TOO). Any way well done you and Phil, I am off to see my mate Bacon’s big reveal. πŸ˜€ ❀

  9. I thought I was the only person who used discombobulated!
    Golly gee whiz can I toss my whole home on that bonfire because my whole life needs to be decluttered.
    I need a total makeover maybe just a new life because I think I am living someone else’s crappy life.
    Discombobulated oh I love you for using that word.
    Thanks for being a friend
