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....

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
