Come downstairs into The Rongorongo Room ~ my seattle home tiki bar ~ a work in progress

The room is 13'x16' with a low (7') ceiling. its been painted in the color Bamboo
the closet

closet, painted with another shelf installed.

with the bar

back of the bar ~ hm. needs booze!

Windows to the Front Yard

odd interior windows (light fixture to be replaced with homemade tapa lighting, just as soon as i figure out the jigsaw!)

turned into faux fishtanks, with lights!

fireplace serves a new purpose, Glacier's hiding space.



Tiki from Fast Eddie in Seattle

chairs need new covers (on order from Kelly's Vintage)



Fishnet


mantle


your advice is welcome!

Good looking start to your tiki bar! Amazing how quickly a plain room can be changed into a hidden paradise.

Is that Al traped in a fish tank?
Elicia!
That looks like a very special "escape" you have there.
An excellent project of inspiration.
Submit it to Critiki. Humuhumu needs new ones.
Thanks for sharing

Elicia, it looks wonderful! What a change from when I last saw it. It looks quite cozy and comfortable, a great place to relax with a cocktail. Only advice I would give: more plants!

Maybe add bamboo, tapas or matting for the stairwell.

Otherwise, looks beautiful.

thanks for the kind words, everyone!

Feelin' Zombified: tapa dog bed..i can do that!

Benzart: at the bottom of the stairs is a bamboo curtain (its an oddly placed, load bearing beam in front of the closet ~ but as soon as i saw it, i knew how to use it!



it's the entry for the bartender to step behind the bar


Humuhumu: live or faux plants? the windows face east. i'm not a green thumb, but the spider plants seem to be doing well. have any suggestions for low-light, easy care tropical-ish plants? i'm going to look at your instructions to build a coconut palm. i thought of you when i visited ArchieMcPhee's.. they RENT trees that look 1/16th as good as the ones YOU made.

Christiki: agreed! the stairwell is pretty plain, i'm filling up the main area first, and will move upwards. the ceiling of the stairwell is slope-y and im having a hard time envisioning how to affix things to it. we didnt want to paint the whole that wierd ceiling.. i 'won' an ebay auction from AnDru the long spears that might help liven up the area!
