This is a remodel of an existing bar area that came with our house.Lots of low grade panneling.Used beach matts from big lots $1 each for thatching,free glass coffee table turned into shelving,free bar stools,and additonal work space made from scrap OSB.Still a work in progress,but check it out. Deleted some of the older pictures...

Way nice. Bonus to do it on the cheap.

You can change the white bar top with a bit of creativity....

Paint it a base color with the Krylon Plastic Paint. Make copies of vintage postcards and photos and stick them down with a very small amount of glue (mod-podge works best). Then do a resin pour over that. The stuff stinks for a couple of days but when it is done it looks way cool.

I'll find some pics of my bar top to give you some ideas.

Yeah another friend also had a similar idea;but seeing as the ol'tiki husband does counter-tops as a living he needs more convincing.He's holding out for vintage boomorang? pattern.

Too funny...Did you think "From down South,
talk real slow like" was referring to a song (I googled it;
and it does,LOL)?...Actually that was just my witty
sarcasm.
Here in America...soon we won't even be able to smoke in
our own cars or homes.Though that's a soap box I won't
even bother to step apon.Just say..My bar is a smoking establishment;even if the rest of our house isn't.
For those who ask...we live in the Tikiless zone of
Viriginia,United States.

You're not kidding about being in a tiki free state. Even the few tiki bars we have here at the beach really only qualify as a tiki-themed bar, and could otherwise be substituted for any other bar down here.
