Renovation – Phase IV

30 Apr

Welcome back my friends to Phase IV – furniture delivery.  Now, today I can’t show you any pictures of the house at this point.  I know that stinks but I can talk to you about the furniture 🙂

The furniture crew called me and advised they would be out at the house between 2:30-5:30PM.  This was fine with me because I had things to get completed before they came out.

Big Daddy

My kitchen had been gutted – bye bye kitchen table.  We really didn’t need one.  The one we had was huge and seemed to be a ‘catch all’ for everything and anything that came through the room.  We decided to do without a table.  It’s just the two of us anyway and we normally camp out in front of the television in the living room talking and watching the news in the evening.  So, my dream kitchen needed one thing that I had ordered off line.  The down side was that one thing had to be put together.  I’m not good a jigsaw puzzles.  If the box had 50 pieces in it, there would probably be 40 pieces leftover if I put it together on my own.  So, I bartered with my neighbor, Big Daddy, next door.  I would give him two items of furniture that his wife wanted if he helped me put together my item I ordered.  His wife volunteered him so quickly it wasn’t even funny – LOL.  And I have to admit that after two hours, we had done it together!  It looked beautiful and better yet it fit so perfectly in the kitchen – like it was made there.  You will have to come back tomorrow to find out what it was 🙂 winks

  Also, my mom had been keeping two book shelves for me at her house that she had said she would give to me over the years.  Me and Jim went and got them… of course in the rain.  This weather was killing us!  They fortunately fit in the back of our SUV when the door was kept open.  We were able to get them into the living room and put them where they needed to go before the furniture arrived.

Also in the meantime of waiting for the furniture, we cleaned.  Isn’t that how it is?  You clean before to de-clutter.  You clean during due to dust.  Then you have to clean after.  By this time I’ll be honest with you, I!

Then the furniture arrived.  Three guys brought the pieces inside of the Hotel Thompson.  One of the guys let it be known that *I* had expensive taste.  That’s ALL my husband had to hear – HA!   Once everything was in place, me and the hub stood back and looked at everything.  It was in that moment we both let out a breath of air and knew we had made the right decision in doing this remodel.

That’s also when I nudged him and told him we weren’t finished.  We then had to decorate.  Rolls eyes – one of my least favorite things trust me.  Tomorrow, come back for the Renovation Reveal Party where you will see everything in its glorious.  I hope you have enjoyed our trip into letting go and beginning a new life.

    Lovely to have friends and neighbours to help. Big Daddy is a very handsome man. Again I am very proud of all of you for letting go of the old and moving on with the new. You will see in my show and tell post that we have also been moving stuff out and starting new also. It is not for the faint hearted which shows you over there and us over here are made of awesome stuff! 😀

      YES I AGREE! I saw your posting and loved it. Big Daddy is a good man and helps us with our yard as well. He’s awesome and such a life saver here at the Hotel Thompson. Letting go is still taking place here now in other rooms. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts – yes he is a cutie! I love it when he drives the big monster outside over the grass – I think he calls it a lawnmower. It makes a lot of noise. Understand and know you are having computer difficulties – they stink to say the least. I hope you get them fixed soon. XOXO – Bacon
