Jungle Shelves:



Flooring is next:





Bamboo from my backyard will be used to shore up the matting:



Tiki light shade:





Matting is rolled on the wall base:







No real words of wisdom but ...
treat your fresh bamboo before putting on the wall - also
I don't think I'd use a roll at a time anymore, I'd probably try to cut the roll into sections both for ease of construction and for a more tight fitting matting.

Golden bamboo with matting & paint job:



We used Golden, Black, and Spectabilis bamboo on the top and bottom of the matting and to shore it up vertically.



The matting was rolled over everything. Outlets and air vents were were cut out after the mat was on. The shelving brackets were rolled over and only thinly sliced where the shelf holders - sorry don't know official terms - would attach.



We continue to move in the extra provisions & await the framing of several prints.







No doubt will find more treasures at the Hukilau 2011.

Some all finished 360 pics to follow when all finished.

I like to call it a Pollotiki paint job.

A customized sponge roller for the red, an inch or so brush & good wrist action for the yellow. Too much paint & you'll get drips along with the other shapes/lines. I felt like I needed more yellow so I also used a toothbrush and my thumb to put way tiny bits of yellow on. Fairly labor intensive but I do think it looks better.

Speaking of the J. Pollock look, I guess I could say that is the Modern and the rest is the Tiki. Or that I just like it-)
The mugs ::: there are always more to get right?, I'm gonna try & make at least one of my own someday - soon.
Almost have the "front" & closet doors done, curtains too, got most of the prints hung up & am adding a few other touches before really mostly all done.

OK, I cannot stay quiet on this, forgive me, I just have to holler, Waller:

You did an amazing job, with the wall, that lava paint job, the lamp, the Exotica album collage....

But you GOTTA get rid of this abomination!:



THAT is simply the devil, the personification of all things un-Tiki, my nightmare of fiesta-colored, hacked import wood -
I urge you, as the author of the book lying on your end table, reconsider this decor decision!

I realize SW Kentucky is not exactly "Tiki Central" for Tiki carvings, but there's gotta be SOMETHING out there that is more in the mood.

Holler Waller,

An amazing transformation... and, you even get personal decorating tips from the BOT author! Not so many of us are that fortunate...

Hope you enjoy your special place; we sure are enjoying ours.

-Tom

The Devil May Care Mask was not originally slated to be used in this new improved room. I used it in my old lounge but it never really worked for me, the fake Australian dot motif had a lot to do with that decision. After the entry door was grassed we put up several prints to see what looked best, a Parker wood block, a tiny Ryden, the green Shag, and a framed Space Escapade lp were all tried. This mask tho, out of everything we had, really looked the best to us. Please, no one hold back if you can think of something that would fit in and is available, let me know. Not many things are in stone here in the Aumakua Cove.

Keep your eyes on ebay for cheap Gope Boards.


Here's one example:
Of course the price will go up on this one but I've seen nice Gope Boards go for less than $50.00
