just a thought. Maybe you could paint over the concrete with a darker color and just simply place a large tiki in front of it. If you have one of course. Just my two cents.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I might have enough bamboo to wrap the posts with (first choice)--or I can get more if neccessary. I've tossed around the idea of faux lava rock or stone before. One thing I'm keeping in mind here is the ability to detach or otherwise take down all 'tiki-ness' in the event we ever decide to sell our house. A potential buyer might be thrown for a loop at all the tiki-ness and I would like to take most/all of it with me if we ever did sell/move. All bamboo, reed fencing, lauhala, carved panels, etc. are screwed or lightly stapled in place and when taken down the house resumes it's 'normal' (marketable?) look.

Hope to have more pic updates tonight or tomorrow--I've istalled some lauhala and made a bamboo drop-ceiling grid as well as a tiki-licious swag lamp to hang from the ceiling grid.
Thanks for looking-check back soon!
BH

You might wanna give the black sharpie a few light coats of UV spray..the sharpie will fade amd turn a brownish color and fade-sometimes bleed.Use those decocolor black paint pens.I heard sharpie has paint pens too-just make sure they have that magic xylene in the formula and aren't water-based paint pens...Good for sniffin too!

SNT,

You could always go with some plywood/particle board etc. anchored to the CMU block with just a couple of anchors that could be filled if u move/sell, that way you can cover the wood with paint and then bamboo/lahala whatevah. Here's an idea, whatever u do on the sides of that PVC pipe going vertically in the pillar pic. u could do a faux bamboo paint job on the PVC pipe itself. PVC looks great that way. Alternately put two pieces of split boo around the pipe.

You could also put anchors in the ceiling for the top of wood pillar covers and put some anchors on the floor to hold the bottom in place, or you could build a 3 sided box for each column and then only attach to the wall or maybe leave freestanding if you weight/widen the bottom.

The basement/ backyard bar is really coming along nicely. It's fun to watch.

S T

Thanx, Ken. That's actually good news for me in this case. I thought the black was a bit stark and 'contrasty' against the lighter color and wished I'd used a brown instead of black-so if it fades some it may look a little more subdued, dude. Handy info, I'll certainly hang on to it!

Thanx, Mrs. Hoptiki and welcome to TC! Being creative is fun, fun, FUN stuff!!! And this place is ultra-inspirational too!

Great ideas, S T, you know I think I've covered ALMOST every possibility for the pillar treatments. Just gotta find a balance between something that looks like a million bucks but doesn't cost a million bucks. You nailed it w/ the bamboozled PVC pipe paint job. That plan has been written into the to-do list. I fauxed some bamboo trim in my house last year using 1" quarter round molding so I think i can pull it off on PVC as well. The anchored ply is also a good idea for an inexpensive substrate to work on top of. You're putting as much thought into this as I am! Thanx much for the help!

Gettin' back on it.
BH

Your priority should be to take a few days off, chill with the family and drink Mai Tai while making a list of what you need to do to finish this. It is important to finish things.

I never finish anything. I always leave some part undone. I call it the secret of immortality. I can't die because I've got to many things to finish. Of course my wife says I just have no focus and the attention span of a gnat. surf-n-turf, I love what you're doing. I have a similar project going but I'm not quite ready to start posting pics yet. I think I'm going to try your idea - faux tapa paint effect using stamps. Not a whole wall like you're doing but a border near the ceiling. Thanks for the ideas and the inspiration!!

Man, that's some kick ass stuff surf-n-turf!



This post slipped by me, then again I'm shin deep in wood chips more than I'm on the computer.

Love the contest poster too, good soul vibe going on there.

Good luck on the basement!
