The Pool table is going but the Jukebox is here to stay. I have had it for twenty years and it plays CD's. The parrot, pictures and chairs I picked up at a yard sales. You can see part of the ceiling that I did a little differently that the other side. The glass float that I picked up out of Craigslist will go up somewhere in the room.
I made the Tiki Fountain from a concrete Tiki that I purchased on Craigslist. I drilled a hole down the middle and added a water pump from a water fountain I bought at a yard sale. The coco joe's style tikis I purchased from the Bali Hai gift store going out of business sale. The Lamp I got from Bamboo Ben.
I got the hanging lamp from a garage sale. I put in a green light bulb, wrapped some fish netting shortened the chains and hung it. You can partially see a bamboo cabinet I purchased at King Richards across from Oceanic Arts in Whittier. I offered half of the asking price and they accepted. All the masks you see in the room I got dirt cheap at a yard sale in Sunset Beach.
This is a full view of the cabinet housing some of my favorite Mugs from Tiki bars I have visited including: Drift in Scottsdale, Trader Vic's, Scottsdale,Oakland, Los Angeles, Forbidden Island, The Bali Hai, La Mariana, Tiki Bar and Grill and Tahiti Nui all in Hawaii.
You can see Doug Horn's carving to the right and below it is another Bar I made. On the bar is another lamp I purchased from Bamboo Ben.
Some shots of the ceiling:
I have done some finishing touches on some of my shelves and have done the exterior to the "White" refrigerator. I will post those pictures later. I am open to any/all suggestions you may have for my room.
