Thanks for sharing Bev. I love that Ku fountain too. Wish I could get my hands on one of them, he'd be perfect in my yard...

I have a similar looking monkey carved out out of a coconut. Mine's from the Bahamas.

Nice collection Bev! Especially the water feature tiki.

That furniture rocks! It just screams Art Deco, and will be fantastic once it's tiki-fied.

Bev...I just keep thinking with that mod look that you should check out Dawn's fabrics. She has so much variety that is Tiki oriented in fabulous colors, think it would help with your awesome furniture.

Bev, I would just use some tiki fabric on some throw pillows and keep the lounge furniture the same.. Just a few pillows with nice printed fabrics will tie in nicely and save some $$$.. And Dawns fabrics and art art also good tie ins.. Nice place you have there..

Thank you. It will be just the cushions that will be replaced as they have lost shape, the rest is in great shape.
I can't wait to move to our property and get the bar set up properly, there are a lot of great ideas on this site, so i'm hoping it will come out good.

Hi all, its been a while, I have been doing some thinking about my bar when I get started, my plan was to build it in my new garage when its done but now I have been thinking I would rather keep the garage for my cars and car related collection seprate from the bar. My attention turned to the current shed I have and thought if I put bi-fold doors on the front and a decking it would make a great bar. Here is the shed, it will have to be painted or covered with something more appealing any thoughts would be greeat, just has to be termite proof. I can't get started on it for a few months but until then I will keep collecting. Bevan

Hi Bamboo Bev,

Sounds like a big project, but new doors and deck sound good, palm trees/tropical looking plants would be inexpensive and large scale to start also. A tiki style pergola would also be a large scale impact possibility, and good to hang things from. Just sit back have a drink and take your time imagining, it's half the fun.

Looks great Bev, like you say...termite proof, some good doors and a deck would be a wonderful foundation. Looks like a good size, have fun and take progress pictures. I know some of the expert builders will give you great suggestions here...you go girl!!!!
