MadDogMike be sure to rub a white cloth on that chair to make sure this stain won't come off on your clothing. Sun can sometimes make it come loose later on too.

hang10tiki we are looking forward to seeing your room. It looks fabulous. Our friends want to see it too so you may have four stopping by in November.

Hale Tiki more details please.

Wendy

I've been racking my brain for what to do above my bar. I wanted to do a roof, but it just won't look right. And I wanted to do an A-frame with thatch, but again, just wouldn't look right. Upon seeing your above the door thingy, I decided that I should do an open A-frame based on a photo I have of I forget what bar right now, but that I could totally get away with it being open and not crowd the room!

Not sure how I will use this yet, thinking it will go on our outdoor bar area when that happens, but bought the small mermaid today from Hobby Lobby. Both mermaids feel heavy and I'm thinking that they might be cast iron. The ladies are part of their Aloha Summer mdse. The small one (12.99) is hollow on the bottom, the larger lady (29.99) is solid on the bottom but suspect it's hollow inside. Went to HL's website on my iPhone and showed the 40% off coupon at the register and got the little lady for only 7.79. You can only use one coupon a day on one non-sale item. I may go back and get the larger shelf sitter lady tomorrow. She was pretty nice and a good size and for less than 18.00 I think a good deal.

I bought a small outrigger on Craigslist and wanted something to display along with it, so I made a Marshall Islands stick chart. All you need are some thin pieces of wood (I used some balsa wood from a never finished model boat, but you could also use some coffee stirrers from Starbucks or maybe even popscicle sticks), small cowrie shells (mine were from a Goodwill necklace), a printout of the chart you want to make at the size you want and then some hot glue and raffia to hold it all together. Super easy and looks very similar to the real thing.

Cool idea, how are you going to display the outrigger with it?

Behold the window blind lamp:






One bamboo window blind, 3 bamboo sticks from the garden center, some assorted lamp parts and some interesting rocks and plaster for a base.

Pretty good bang for the buck.
