Thanks for all the kind words folks!

Here's a few updates:

Phase 218: I started to convert the support beam into a "palm tree".
It's actually further along than this photo suggests, but not much...

Here's a few shots of the ceiling with the shells and netting up. I was gifted a huge net (like this is only about 30% of it) by my Maritimer father in law...but the net was white, so I dyed it dark-brownish. Then I hot-glued dozens of shells to the ceiling and I threw some shells directly onto the nets (but you can hardly tell from the photos):






That's all for now! Thanks for checking in!

I got tired of looking at this big white eyesore:


So I took a photo of the bamboo directly below the switch and had it developed in a 5 x 7 size like this:


And glued it to the light-switch plate like this:


And voila!:

A better camouflage, don't you think?

Yes, much better. I just went through the entire thread and you have done an amazing job decorating this room. I love the lava wall, and how the plants are coming out of the bamboo wall. Would be nice to see some more pictures of the entire place all put together.

A few other updates:

More done in the Nautical/aquarium corner:

I'm loving this area of the lounge. I know not everyone loves mixing nautical with their tiki...and I respect that, But for me, it's really reminiscent of Bahookas...and I love that place.

I installed a 7 watt lamp above my bar sink. It was just way too frickin' dark before. Now I can see the glasses I'm rinsing out:

What's nice about this lamp is the bottom is removable...so I'm essentially directing the low wattage light exactly where I need it (without affecting the nearby mural with excess light).

I've got more "Nautical" wood up on the last wall:



So that's coming along...

And I starting doing more to convert that support post into a palm tree:





Still lots of stuff to do yet, but I'm getting closer to ...er...(done?).

Thanks for checking up on me!

OK, I was gonna post my progress. Now, I think I'll wait til this thread sinks a little lower down the page. Amazing work Slacks. Makes me wanna make contact with my inner genius & get a bit more creative than just hanging' stuff!

I'm still tripping on how awesome that lava rock wall/shelving unit turned out! The nautical nook is coming along splendidly (I love the Royal Family Squid mugs also...one of my favorite buys); I can't wait to see how it looks all finished up. I wished that I had more space for that look in my bar, but I didn't so I ended up doing it in my bathroom! Keep up the good work!

Thanks folks. I appreaciate the feedback. And Kahalakruzer...you've got one of the coolest tiki spaces for something in an apartment. I'm amazed at what you've pulled off in such a condensed space.

Anyone have suggestions on what I should wrap around the "palm trunk"? I'm thinking a sort of plaster/guaze combo which can withstand a few drunken tackles...

mahalo!

Some more progress shots:

In Late October I had the nautical wall mostly done, just wanted to do a lava-rock treatment to the rest of the wall, as a sort of continuation of the mural, and to balance the effect of the lava rock shelves:






Later I painted them black. Here's what the wall looks like done, but I still haven't hung all the art yet:









I added a totally fake float lamp in the nautical corner, but I fear it's still too bright:




I added more to the fake palm post, but I still need to do a bark treatment in the light grey area:



Here's those 3 recent elements all together:



I added my collection of Chinese rickshaw hats to my ceiling:


The ceiling in this portion of the lounge is still not done, but it's close. I just want to add bamboo strips to hide the black seams (and of course add a bunch more lamps, flotsam, jetsom, etc.:



Doo doodle Doot doot!
