Since my collecting skills do not match my building skills, I asked Bamboo Ben if he would be willing to work some of his tiki magic on my living room. He accepted and is currently 4 days into the build out of my tiki room. The room is approx. 20 feet x 20 feet and already includes a 70's style wet bar and a small wood stove, which will be staying in one form or another since I live in the mountains and it gets cold.

Here are pics of the build out process....

Before - Tuesday January 22, 2008








Day 1 - Wednesday January 23, 2008






Taking a break at Forbidden Island with Mai Tai and Notch


Day 2 - Thursday January 24, 2008


Day 3 - Friday January 25, 2008

Thatch-frosted vegan cupcakes from Panda for the build out!




Day 4 - Saturday January 26, 2008












Day 5 - Sunday January 27, 2008










Day 6 - Monday January 28, 2008






Day 8 - Wednesday January 30, 2008


Notch, Bamboo Ben, Tai Won On and Dr. Von Zombie








Day 9 - Thursday January 31, 2008


Day 10 - Friday February 1, 2008














After Pics....a tiki bar is really never done!










More after pics...these were taken in July 2009

Sweeeet!!

It's really cool to see progress pictures on this build out. I can tell that this whole project is going to be ultra cool when completed. Not sure how you going to play in the chair, but I love it...it goes well with your paintings...jukebox = to die for!

That one shot of the bookshelves with the white walls reminds me of a comic book store in my city. I like the bamboo you got going on. The floor is cool
