I'm going burlap & then fishnet. I've got the fishnet, I just have to find the burlap, ( and the $$$ ). I'm shooting for the end of this month to have the ceiling done & the walls painted. I've got a car club meeting on the 27th & I'd like to surprise the boys with a bit of progress.

WE HAVE PROGRESS!!!! Nothing Earth-shattering, but progress, nonetheless. I decided, instead of waitng 'til I had everything to do the complete job, that I would do it in phases, as time & money allowed. This is the start of phase one.
Painted the green basecoat on the walls. Got the color from page 17 of "Book Of Tiki". Stapled burlap over the exposed ceiling, as well.


Added the fishnet to the ceiling & began to fill it with flotsam & jetsom.






A few shots without the flash,



Moved part of the collection back in.

I'll be working on phase one until it's done & will post updates as things progress.

WOW! Yours are now on my wish list. I paid 5 bucks apiece for those, by the way.

Hey Rick,thanks for the update. It's starting to take shape nicely in there.. Nice work.. I have one of those old green fish floats also, but I'm scared to hang it for fear it will fall and break. But I do hang a newer aged blue one..

Those floats are all over the place, around here. If it breaks, I'll find another one.

OK, guys. I need some opinions. Do these lights work?


Do I hang these masks or are they too cheesy?

Thanks for your help.

those masks ARE cheesy!

Maybe stick them behind the netting to keep them but hide them

I'm a believer that all related stuff can work, it's all in how you display them. You don't want to put too much "weight" on items like the masks. You want the main attention to be on tiki items like your mugs and that large carving you have. Support this with lighting in the right places, and I'm telling you-- it all works, don't get rid of a thing!

These are not TIKI. Each one is one half of a COMEDY/TRAGEDY set.
