Some updated photos...mostly progress on the back bar shelving.



Need to add some rum...


A night shot showing the illuminated fence. Its RGB led strips, so the color can be changed. I think red looks the best although photo shows blue.



Here are a few shots showing the entire area:

Jim,

Looking good! On the back bar what's up with the lighted tikis/moai? They look very cool but I can't tell if they're plastic over lights or what. My curious mind wants to know, lol.

thanks Lori.

The lighted Moai are resin lamps that Spencer's sold 15-20 years ago. I picked them up online over time. They ship incredibly poorly. Out of four lamps I purchased from different sellers, 3 of them showed up broken. I was able to glue two of them back together and the other was a total loss.

What I like about them in the spot I put them is they cast just the right amount of light up on the ceiling in the bar which highlights the rafters and roof architecture.

Another cool piece I picked up from Will Carve last November...finally got it painted and hung:



We had our big party on Saturday night...while not a tiki band, this band was serving up some great tunes on Saturday.





And the bar seemed to be a hit with our guests...

Thanks everyone.

Will you're invited for sure! You might need to wear a jacket up here though.

I realize my latest addition is tiki sacrilege, but with the TV in the bar I don't miss any of the game while making another drink.



I will likely follow the lead of others here on TC and make a facade to cover it when not in use and/or trim it out to make it blend a little better with the other decor.

I also moved an old stereo and a pair of speakers to the bar. After buying a couple different outdoor speakers and being unhappy with how they sounded I returned them and re-purposed some existing stereo equipment I had in storage. This included a powered sub-woofer which really filled in the outdoor speakers which are sorely lacking in the low end. These additions combined with the existing speakers mounted under the deck which is opposite the bar really fills the entire area with good sound without being too loud. The stereo is connected to the TV and also an Air Port Express so that I can stream music from the computer. It was nice to find another use for everything and clean out a closet in the house.
