Great job TW. I dig the flooring. It really changes a room. This is gonna be great to watch. I'm sure your about over it already. It sure makes life a mess for a few days while transforming and usually makes the animals go nuts too. Hang in there and please post pics and techniques of projects. We all can learn from watching.

Thanks Loki! It's really fun finally being able to change a room to what you've been dreaming of. It's a lot of work, but well worth it when you can sit down and relax in a space you're happy with.

Nice!!! I am fully stealing your idea of using the bamboo to hide speaker wires. My roomate slapped our surround-sound speakers up on the walls, and I've been trying to think of some way to cover the wires!

nicely done! It's amazing how a new floor and some paint can TOTALLY transform a room. Now you have you rblank slate for the tiki bar/room...this is where the fun REALLY begins

thanks for the update and I'm looking forward to seeing the room come alive! and to see some of those 12 hanging lamps you've been talking about. sounds cool!

I was talking with the Amber Love Goddess this weekend and asked her where we'd like to end up and number one on her list was Victoria.

So... you may have some new Tiki Neighbors in a decade or so.
That cherry floor should be wearing in just about right by then.



That's great news Pablus! Victoria is a wonderful place to live, we've always got an open door and Absinth waiting for you.

Hey McTiki!

No bar...yet though it is in the plans. First a huge built-in wall cabinet/entertainment unit needs to be created, then I get to built the bar. I already have plans for a surfboard glass rack suspended above the bar, and I've been experimenting with two part resin for the actual bar top.

Oh ya, I'm still looking for an old board to paint.
If anyone has one that's past it's prime they'd like to donate I can definitely give it a good home!

Wow, those are cheap!
Thanks McTiki, if I can't find a cheap/free authentic board, I might just go that route. Plus, Washington is just across the water from me.
