TikiVato,
I found some very cool LED lighting kits at Ikea, I mounted a set on one of my mug shelves
to provide mood lighting, I was really happy with how they came out, the lights are programmable
and shift color, they pretty much can be used for anything, just an idea?

The pleasure was mine. Wish our group had more time to mingle with your nice group. That was our third consecutive night there and we were leaving first think the next morning.

I will check them out. I like what you did to your shelves. Nice collection. Mahalo for sharing.

I've wanted a rounded front bar since I started building my home bar. The vintage ones were out of my price range so I finally decided to build my own. I found a rounded front bar in Craigslist. It was perfect for what I wanted to do.



I cut the Tapa and draped it over the bar then applied two coats of varnish. (Two days to allow for drying time.



Today I cut black bamboo and hung the centerpiece which I purchased from Oceanic Arts. I added the lights under the bar counter top. Tomorrow I will move the bar into the Tiki Nui. I am going to redo the counter top as soon as I decide which direction to go with that.

I bought this Ethan Allen hutch from a thrift store the same day I bought the new bar.




I added a few touches to it to make it match the bar.



Bar and Hutch in the Tiki Nui.

Tiki Vato,

Really nice work on the recycled bar and hutch. What did you do with the top of the bar?

I found this old cabinet at a local vintage shop. It was in rough shape.



I used some sea grass, bamboo, bamboo handles and home depot lights to spruce it up. I needed the cabinet to display some mugs I got at Tiki Oasis. Last week I traded with Fez Monkey for that Tiki Bob. I ended up moving things around on that wall.

Hiltiki,
Here's a picture of the lighting you asked about. I hope this helps.

Last month my wife asked me to expand my Tiki Nui Lounge into "HER" Patio. I jumped at the opportunity before she changed her mind. Here are some before pictures:

First on the agenda was to paint the trim, cover up the White ceiling, the skylight and do something with the lights.



I also wanted to tear down the white picket fence and replace it with a long tiled bar. I will replace all the planted fence covering with bamboo and built a little tiki shack to protect the bartenders when crafting cocktails outdoors.



I tore down the fence, painted the trim on the patio and started to add to the ceiling from materials I bought at Oceanic Arts. I love the crew that works there. Always willing to offer advice when asked.


I finished the ceiling for now then framed the long bar.


Later I will add the pictures of the tiled bar, the bamboo fencing and the shack.

I completed the tiled bar, put up the reed fencing, added a lighted ceiling fan to the ceiling.


In less than a days work, my wife and I put the shack together from materials I purchased from Oceanic Arts.


My wife still needs to decorate the wall but the tiki shack is structurally completed.
