This is cool. Love that window mural idea. Reminds me of Trader Sams at Disneyland. Great Work.

Thanks forgotten tikiman!

Tikification is continuing, with further inroads being made into the kitchen

The "before" photos:





Good riddance to those bland, unadorned walls:





In addition to hanging up a PNG gope board, I needed to remove the curtains to do the fiddly bits:





And the old white plastic lampshade over the sink had to go. Fortunately I found this on a recent expedition to Wellington:



In addition to which I finally found some flax matting for doing the ceiling:



In the not-too-distant future, I will no longer have to look at my horrible white ceilings...

Sorry for the delay, but I have been absent due to ill health. The good news is that the roof of the kitchen is nearly done and I will have a bunch of photos to show you fairly soon.

Here are the photos showing the closing stages of the kitchen tikification.

Vaguely PNG-style panels for the big ugly white beam above the kitchen sink:



I have no routing skills, but I can paint, so these are acrylic patterns painted on plywood, tacked onto the beam:





The kitchen's white ceiling was also banished:







And I have also painted up some boards to cover up the joins between the various flax mats:





I'm currently waiting for a second pair of hands to drop by so these can be nailed up.

Here are the latest stages in the home tikification process...

I eventually got those panels up on the ceiling:





A little bit of Californian and Québécois tiki iconography for the hallway:



I found those on a recent trip to Auckland, on the same day as I found these:



Two West Papuan shields. The one on the left is 5 ft, 9 inches tall, while the other one is 4 ft, 9 inches tall.

Close-ups of the heads:





I scratched my head for a few days wondering where to put them. As they are shields, they both have handles on the back, so they can't be flush-mounted on a wall. So they would have to be hung. Then I had an idea:











A vast improvement!

Great to see you back and working on your home. Love what you did with the shields, very creative idea.

Thanks for the positive feedback - and it only took one sheet of fabric, 3 nails, 3 drawing pins, two bits of string and two bits of fishing wire.
