The ceiling rework is finish. It was a major pain in the ass, but it looks much better now.

As luck would have it, I found your post while looking for pirate themed decor for my 2 year old son. I was trying to discover how to make a realistic looking sail (thus make his bed look like a pirate ship). I found so many great ideas here. I had gotten material from Walmart for $1 per yard, so will distress the material with ink. I love the part on the bar with the bucket for a lookout. The sign idea will work great for a pirate wanted sign I have. It was made using my son's picture. Thanks again & I plan to check back often for more ideas & inspiration. I will try to post pictures when it is all done for anyone who might be interested.

Holy Toledo! I think we've found Martha Stewart's illegitimate son. You know, the one with the "Tiki Problem"! Maybe we should stage an intervention!
Seriously. What you have done is truly amazing & I'm jealous as heck! {Sorry for the strong language...Kids. cover your ears!}

Hey hey'
Just wanted to say thank you for showing us all some great ideas for creating "TIKI SPACE". I used your example for "ships rigging" but I doubled-up the blocks in two cases. Will post pics when done with project. Thanks again.

That's amazing work there. It's positively inspirational.

My husband keeps making comments about my bric-a-brac in the curios looking like a tropical shipwreck .... I'll have to show your wonderful work to my husband when he gets home because it's giving me ideas!

It's been a while since I posted any progress pics. I have done a lot more with the space since I last posted.

However, I thought I'd post some pics I have taken over the years (specifically from Disneyland and Walt Disney World) that have provided the inspiration and a portion of the overall theme I am creating at the Kona Luanii.

You are quite an inspiration! I don't have space for a tiki bar in my home but am a huge tiki and disney fan, particularly of the tiki room and pirates. Your birds inspired me to make one of my own. It's kind of a tiki room meets pirates. Thanks again for the inspiration, your bar is looking amazing and look forward to your next update with pictures! Mahalo

After almost a year's worth of work (started 4th of July 2006), the Kona Luanii is finished (almost). I still have to redo the surface of the bar top and recover the cusions on the loveseat, but other than that, complete. I cannot take full credit for this endeavor. My mom is an absolute HGTV addict and when I stared working on this project she jumped at the chance to help out. Thanks mom!!! Without further ado, the Kona Luanii......



























It's hard to see some of this stuff in darker corners so I used a flash once in a while to show items.







I know televisions are taboo in tiki bars, but I wanted one to be able to watch 'appropriate' films, etc. So I just hid mine. I just pull up the burlap canvas bag over the front. The DVD player is hidden in a crate next to the TV.

Dollar store tikis don't look too bad if you put them in the right environment.

WHEW!!!! The pictures start to blend together after a while, sorry, I may have posted a few too many. Otherwise, any tikiphiles passing thru Denver are welcome to stop in for a visit. We would be glad to have you!

No way! I really enjoyed scrolling down and finding more and more corners of your bar to peer into. Just awe-inspiring....
It is now my life's goal that my next home has a basement!

Wow! Zulu, you should be very proud. That is a fantastic tiki/beachcomber room. I am inspired. I would love to visit: I will bring the rum.
