We moved back to Vegas and our home tiki bar build has started.
The official name shall be "The Honu Hideaway"
It's a converted single car garage, so it's 20x11 feet.
Let the fun begin.


























AND AWAY WE GO.........

I assume those were "Before" shots, & the last three were "After" shots?

Please post more when you have more!

MadDogMike- It's been a great ride so far. Now if only work would stop getting in the way of the fun.

AtomicTikiPunk- Not smoke in the room it's my crappy camera.

MauiRose- I wish I could say I did the walls (xtra plaster and faux paint) but the prior owner made it a media room. Now it will be our dream tiki room. It was the deal closer on the house for me.

VampiressRN- Thanx, we are having fun thinking of all the stuff we can do to the room.

HollerWaller- The bones of this room sold me as soon as I saw it.

FreddieFreeLancer- Yes before shots, then we started adding out stuff in.


Needed a 16 foot frame for my vinyl, no luck at any stores so I made my own...sorry, still have a crappy camera.

Lattice molding to make lower half of frame.


Two 8 foot pieces needed. Was only 3.00 each so I got three just incase.


Drilled a hole every 13 1/4 inches so the screw would not crack the plastic when I drilled it into the wall.


Bamboo n machete


Fun stuff


Split it so it would hang flat


Hang lower half of the frame with twine by each screw to tie on the BOO





Yep, almost fell


Place the albums and then tie the BOO on.


half way done...

get er done...

I used wood trim instead of the lattice molding for the top support. $6.00


Put the top molding up. Placed it 1 inch above the LP. More twine as well.








Tie on the top BOO, it hangs down far enough to hold LP against wall.
I can still take the LP down to play it.
Then I cut 3 small 12 inch pieces of BOO, one for each end and one in the middle to cap it off.

DONE for under $30.00

We had a wonderful visit with you and your wife in Las Vegas. Thank you for driving to see us. Your room is wonderful. We have hung your swizzle sticks in the Buzzy Bedroom. Cheers, Wendy
