Amazing work! I love it. Home bars are what it's all about...yeah I know "it's about the people".

Thanks for the kind replies everyone...No real update here. Just a bump for easy access for a fellow enthusiast whose name I didn't catch but gave him the link. Hell, I'll throw in a pic I took a few weeks ago at night in the backyard---really need to redo my thatch job already.
Oh yea!! Carvers, carver wanabees, Bosko fans (who isn't?), tiki revelers in general--check out his link-

Ms Swanky and I had the pleasure of enjoying Brad and his wife's hospitality this weekend. Got to catch up with Tiki Bob there too. The Lounge is WAY improved since we were there in September.
One sweet space!

the room looks really sensational. Looks sooo authentic - like a back street 'joint'. Love it - what a great hideout!

I'm just beyond jealous...in a good way!
If you don't mind my asking, around how much did you spend on this 'lil project? It seems to me that you're quite crafty and used a lot of faux finishing and layering to get the final effect. You couldn't have spent THAT much money since most of what I believe you did was with paint and paint is generally inexpensive. Amazing!
If you ever need a partner in crime, I'm quite the design oriented painter myself. I'd love to be a part of a project like this either helping someone else or creating my own Polynesian paradise.
Love it! So authentic looking. Not cheesy at all!
