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..

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!

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 !
