Keeping in mind that I'm stuck renting for now, and my landlord is very particular about what he's ok with me doing, I finally started working on my own lounge. It's still very much a work in progress but it's to the point that where I can show it off a little as I keep picking away at it.







I'll post some before and after pics as I get more organized, but I'm happy with how it's going.

It must be so hard to do what you want when you rent, but don't let it get you down, like MDM said. I always encourage stand-alone items that you don't have to attach to many places. Most people (even non-Tiki folks) put up some pictures, so just plan on filling holes and painting when you move on. If you invest in free-standing bar, shelves, etc., then you can easily move and always sell in the future if needed.

It is looking great...keep up the good work...and post a pic of you enjoying a cocktail in your digs. CHEERS

I'm a renter (apartment) too. It's nice to see other renters post their lounges and bars. I haven't done that yet. Keep up the good work!

All good man. The room looks great. I rent too so I know where you are at . Its just cool to make our own Tiki space, room, Lounge etc, reguardless of how much we can really do. But it looks awesome

Thank you all for the encouragement! Here is a few more pics. i'm hoping to get more of it done over the next few days to display it better.





One of my velvet's, and some frames I reworked to better suit some lovely art.



Part of my canoe shelf.



The creature corner.



...and part of the upper bar area that is finished.


I'll have some other pics to post of the furniture I've refinished and what the room looked like before the build soon.

Looking good Erk! Among other things, I really dig the boat shaped shelf. Did you build that?

Aloha and cheers!

I wish I had made that. I was driving to catch a movie and saw it at a yard sale while waiting for the light. There was a full size one as well, but it wouldn't fit in my car.

The place looks great! I love the Creature Collection. I also rent and I can't wait until my apartment looks that good. I'm trying to talk my wife in letting me get rid of our kitchen table and replacing it with a Tiki bar...That conversation is still on going with no end in sight but I have hope

Just a few quick pics of the new lighting.







It's nice being able to adjust the colours to nearly anything I want, and I can finally see back behind the bar to reach the booze.
