Hello everyone.
It's been a little while since I've been active on this forum, but I've been watching occasionally. Especially when I want to look at home tiki bars and dream. Well this year, I can finally say, that at 35 years old I've finally bought my first home, and now that I have my own place, I can finally start on my dream of making a my very own tiki bar! Finally. So here is the start.

Real quick-like last night I hung some bamboo, just to get a start.

Congrats on the new house. Looks like you have a decent area to work with. Nice with the pool view right outside of it. Any idea what direction you're going with it?

Thanks!

I do have a general direction in mind, but I imagine it will change overtime. Since it's a relatively small space, I'm initially planning on more of a bar type space than a full lounging area that I'd really like, but we'll see how everything pans out.

I started over this weekend though, by painting the walls, so that the aged old paneling wasn't what was poking through behind the bamboo.







It's a decent little start, but eventually I'll have to start getting some decor in there. As well as anything that isn't a couple of camping chairs! Haha

I've decided after a couple times of using the small room, I've come to the conclusion that there just isn't enough space to actually use as a bar in there. So I've decided to tear the room out and convert the entire garage into a bar.

Here's a couple photos of the tear down process




And here's a couple photos of the bar I picked up that will eventually end up out in the garage. Right now though it's in the dining room so we can use it over the holidays.

Your off to a great start. Don't feel like you have to build it all at once. New ideas can develop along the way.

Sorry for the photo heavy post, but I thought I'd share some photos from my New Year celebration.

Hope you all had a great Holiday season.

Cheers to the New Year.













Made up some custom Menus and Coasters as well.





Even the dog had a good time!
