The Home Tiki Bars section is one of my favorites on TC so I thought I'd do my part.

"Malahini" means "guest" in Hawaiian and, well, it's our guest bedroom.

Another translation --- and a more common one, it seems --- for "malahini" is "newcomer," which I think also sort of fits because most of our friends don't know much about Tiki so this room is often their introduction to it.

Blank slate after we moved in:





Picking paint was more difficult than I thought it would be. What seemed too light on the swatch looked much darker on the wall. I at first thought the middle one would be the final choice, but ended up going with the first one (the lightest).

Figuring out the arrangement for things:







When we moved I was so close to throwing out this three-level shelf that used to hold all our DVDs, but somebody suggested I hold onto it. It turned out to fit perfectly in the closet and the shelves are just right for Tiki mugs!

Hi MR. Looks like you are off to a good start! I really like the bar and the round rattan shelf. I need to find one of those...

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers and Aloha!

Q-Tiki - Thanks! I scoured Craigslist for awhile until I found the bar and shelf.

Pele Paul - I'll have more photos soon.

Mahalo, VampiressRN!
