This is my Witco bar that I purchased last weekend. It's definitely a unique fixer-upper opportunity, but I think that it's worth what I paid for it. I need to replace the vinyl with an animal print and do something with the gluey areas.





Sure you could do a Leopard print which is what everyone with zero imagination would do but why not go with something not as common?

Like Tiger?


Giraffe?


or Dalmatian?


Come on! I think the Dalmatian has a nice wintery feel too it.

I like the tiger, and the giraffe is starting to grow on me. Can you show me how the bar stools would look in the different prints so I can make up my mind. Thanks.

I may have a handle on a witco tiki!
What I need to know is an estimated value to offer for it ...it's about 6 feet high,the fountain piece with no fountain works or bowls.
Anybody have any idea what the market value is for something like this?

Great ideas Bora Boris.

How about a nice Zebra look?





FYI Here is the boring old leopard print.

Just like this one we got recently:

though the leopard is worn a bit bare.

And this sofa:

We also got the matching throne chair, but it has crushed velvet and needs to be reupholstered.

Also these wall hangings and this table:

Tiki Kate,

Have you decided on the fabric yet?

Here is a signed Witco brochure that is on ebay for too much money.

Not yet.

I was thinking about cow print since I live in Yucaipa.

But seriously, I was riding the Jungle Cruise this morning and thinking, "Which of these animals would look the best stapled to the front of my Witco bar?"

My living room walls are green, and I've already got some tiger and leopard prints in there, so at the moment I'm leaning toward giraffe.

I think these are god awful ugly. However .......

But I got them for a steal. And if the person who may end up buying them from me decides he doesn't want them I will be selling them on here. (not shipping them)







Feel free to send me offers and I will hold onto them if the 1st guy changes his mind.

Hopefully no one has made you any ridiculous offers, cuz yes, I want em. Perhaps that velvet Elvis or a Mr. Smiley mug will help persuade you to hang on to them for me!

Thanks,

If I ever came across one of these bars with ratty chair cushions or mangy faux animal print backing(mind you, at a steal of a price),
I would Zodiac(metalflake vinyl) them in rootbeer brown, Aztec gold or Irish green. FTW! haha, (j/k on FTW)

Someone has not been enlightened by TIKI MODERN here, I presume!



Cause with a little TLC and upholstery (note the strip along the backrest), they can be transformed into this splendid throne of primitive modern furniture design! Charles Eames can't match THIS!
