I have a space and a few pieces of art that seem to call out for tiki. Would you take a look and perhaps give me some advice?
The whole flickr set is here:
Most of the things were picked up in Africa/PNG, so it's not *really* tiki, but I just bought a roll of palapa thatch that's 30" by 7' (something similar is here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Thatch-30-x-10-Palapa-Palm-Tiki-Bar-Luau-BBQ-Commercial-Grade-4910-/221182303014) and I thought maybe I could makes some sort of awning for the bar.
Can anyone tell me how to fashion the palapa? I have access to tools but am not sure how to cut the roll without it fraying, and have never done anything like this before.
Also any suggestions are welcome. There's an electrical outlet behind the bar. I would love to put in some sort of water feature but don't have any great ideas. Cheers from Colorado, and thanks so much!
