That bar with the overhead you are building is going to be nice...great job. Sliding glass doors can be a decorator's nightmare, but I am sure someone will come up with a great idea.

I have 3 sliding glass doors in my house that look a hundred percent better with BYPASS shutter doors. Mine are off-white plantation shutters that match the shutters in the rest of the house. The link shows examples, but you could do natural wood to match all your bamboo. Looks like you have a frame build-out around your door already. Well anyway...that is my lame suggestion.

Thanks Pappy!!! Good call on the lights, now I need to go get dimmers!!

VampiressRN that was not a lame suggestion, I would have never thought of that. I think I am going to try my lame idea with the bamboo bead things and if it doesn't look good, I might try your idea. Thanks!!!

Here are some pics with the thatch up. It is not really supported yet or finished for that matter. I think I am going to order more thatch and double it up because it is kind of gappy!!! Also, it will be covered with some kind of material were all the exposed wood is.

Can anyone tell from the pictures is this a "real Leeteg painting? I bought another new bar and they guy practically gave it to me for free because I bought the other bar from him too! I like the painting/print regardless, just curious if there is any experts out there with any info on it. The pictures kind of suck (only got two and the battery died!!!

Thanks,
Craig









Ahhh, I just looked at the pictures I posted and noticed the blue writing below the signature. I didn't notice it before. So I guess it is just a poster, looks really old though!

Tikifreak1 your lounge is really looking good!
As for the Leeteg, yeh, the printing under the signature gives it away. It is still an old print though and of one of Leeteg's most famous paintings called Hina Ripa (Probably knew that!).
Getting one of the few originals would be quite a deal!
These posters are probably the next best thing and are even themselves becoming hard to find.

Thanks for the comps and the info TabooDan! Here is some pics of how the the bamboo curtain turned out over the sliding glass door. My dogs triggered off the motion light out back otherwise it looks pretty cool I think. Also, put some flicker bulbs in the lamps and got an old puffer parrot fish.

Looking like some kind of hideaway. A nice vintage feel to it.

Big Kahuna, thanks! Although I am inspired by everybody on here!!! My work is nothing compared to most of the work on here! The record frame is from TC artist Monkeyman!!!

Pappy- If you read this again, I got dimmers!!!

Burlap phase 1 almost done, just some cleaning up and some detail trim work!

I wrapped the post with rope (which is almost done, I ran out towards the top) and it appears it is also great fun for our cats!!

After all the trim and detailing I will put a fish net up in the ceiling area and decorate it with a bunch o' crap!

Haven't done to much to the basement (still need to do a lot more around the bar) but I did get a chair and some fish traps that I converted into light!! Nothing spectacular.

Finished the bar today. The main building part of it is anyways, I'm still eventually going to add a bunch to it! I also added more thatch and it made it more full looking which I was hoping for.
