a work in progress by bullet, wendy and dan.

the first thing i did was replace the white curtains and get some real wood shutters for the bay windows and picture window.

this is a sunken living room/dining area. the living area has a 8.5' ceiling, so two 4' pieces wouldn't do. i went with 4' matting on the top and 3.5' matting on the bottom. i cut tapa into strips to fill the gap.




once the bamboo planks are in place it doesn't look half bad, i dare say!


just throwing art at the walls and seeing where it sticks. i'm sure these will be re-arranged many times before i'm satisfied.

ah, beautiful tiki clutter!

bosko clutter

maori/coco joe clutter


rat fink clutter

and png clutter.

weapon clutter


our next step will be a shelf all the way around the top for mugs, coco joes, rat finks, etc. then we'll cover the ceiling and start figuring out where everything is gonna go. eventually i'll figure out what to do for flooring and attempt to construct a tiki hut facade and doorway for an entrance. no big hurries on those two projects. i'll probably not get to them til next spring or summer.

That Rat Fink crap just doesn't belong. Box it all up & send it to me & I'll dispose of it for you!

Part of the fun of working with Bullet is seeing all the wonderful artwork. Part of the challenge of the project is not stepping on or bumping any of it while we work. So far so good. Little Lost Tiki your art is so wonderfully detailed that I look at it again and again and every time there is something new to discover. Wendy

PS Bullet good job on the thread

WoW! I don't see any clutter..... just beautiful Tiki jewels.

I have a soft spot for Tiki art and Rat Fink. I have my own shrine to "Big Daddy" and the Rat.

The Tapa is a awesome touch. Looks fantastic! Keep posting those progress pics.

Very cool bro, love the pic. Mahalo for reading the thread and letting me know whats up. When i started the bamboo project i thought It was a good concept but didn't really know how it would go over or turn out. Its been great so far. Your smile and gratitude is what its all about.

Aloha

Hi Abstractiki, when I took the photo of Bullet we had been looking for just the right place to hang it. You have made so many people happy. We love our piece and will find a great place for it in Dan's collection. Thank you so much, Wendy
