hello,
been following vantiki's awesome bathroom remodel and it inspired me to post some pics of my bathroom remodel. specifically, the shower... it was my first time working with tile, but i felt the urge to create a tiki in mosaic. here are some pics of the work so far (still needs grout and to be cleaned). hope you fellow tiki fans appreciate tang's placement. the reason i went with tangaroa is because i've named our backyard bar the tangaroa room ..

WOWIE ZOWIE....I love it. TC is definitely an inspiring place. Your shower is looking awesome, the crossed palms are wicked, the tiki is great and the colors are perfect. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Love the design and the color choice. It's looking great already.
Can't wait to see it with the grout. This is the coolest shower.

Hot damn! That is sooooo nice! I just walked the laptop over to Ms. VanTiki so she could peek at your cool stuff while she grouts the tile in our bathroom. I see you used kerdi waterproofing too! good times. Do you guys have a second shower to use while you do the tile work?

mahalo vantiki, i've been following the progress on your bathroom here and on that tile site, and i have to say it looks fantastic!! yeah i'm doin the whole kerdi/ditra thing cause it seems like the best way to keep everything sealed and not have to kill yourself with cement board. this is our small bathroom, and i did what you guys did tear everything out and start new. luckily we have another bathroom so it wasn't a major crisis but we plan to redo that bathroom also (different colors but similar). i just figured i'd make my mistakes and learn on this small bath before i do the main bathroom. but having done this, i have alot of appreciation for the work you guys are doing on top of the tiles you created, keep up the good work... i'll be grouting this week and i'll post more pics then..

aloha tikikirby

You must have mad skills or the pateince of a saint to make those tile cuts. Either way, it looks like you worked really hard. Awesome!

Awesome!

The tap is the best! Beautiful work!

Now, all I have to do is buy a place here, and fly you out and have you do the shower!
