Hi,

My hubby and I had some spare room on our deck, so decided to build a Tiki Bar! Drew some inspiration from a few I'd seen on google and pinterest, but here is the start of our 'Pehea Ka Kamaluhia' (How's the serenity) build in Sydney Australia.






We are still trying to decide whether to inset the Tiki's into the front posts, or mount them on top when the bar top goes on. What's everyone's opinion?

The tile mural I have coming as a feature on the bar top :

24"x 12" at this stage, will be surrounded by red glass tiles

Flying Martini, shaken not stirred.

Off to a good start. Cool name, very apt to its Australian origins. Keep em coming.

I'm always excited to see a new bar build! Welcome to tiki central.

I love the tile mosaic. Where did you find it?

Great work so far...that tile mural is going to be awesome. JMHO...I would hang on to those Tikis for now until you get the bar top laid out. They might be a better fit logistically on a back bar. Welcome to Tiki Central, looking forward to more progress.

Hi Lori!

I found it at
www.pacificatileart.com

They have four Tiki themed tile murals, we liked this one for the extra colour and the party atmosphere!

Thanks, we are pleased with the progress so far!
I'm leaning towards leaving them on the top too. So that's
where they will stay until we get the rest of the bar dressed.

See where the flow takes us.

Flying Martini,
Shaken not stirred!

Thought I'd post a pic of our surfboard bench that Hubby made for another part of our deck last year. Artwork is done by my uber-talented Dad, AKA Thurston Howell IV!

Another great feature to tie in with the Tiki theme.



Waiting impatiently for my tile mural to arrive, last checked out at San Francisco sort facility!

Hopefully this week, most likely next week.

Flying Martini,

Out!

Hi yourself - Mrs. Howell is just ginger peachy. I'll take a rain check on that Margarita.

Not too much progress yet, still waiting on the tiles.

We did do a coat of oil on the posts, and a bright green on the frame. We will
Put bamboo screening over the green, so will tone it down a bit!





See how we go next week!

The tiles have arrived! Woot woot! May be able to get a start on the bar top this weekend.

Pele Paul, I found the tiles at
http://www.pacificatileart.com, they have 4 tiki style tile murals available, 2 are available as accent tiles also. Can't wait to get them on! Looking around for a mosaic tile to put on the rest of the bar top now, were thinking red glass, but now steering toward a nice 'silver' metallic - though it is more of a pewter sort of colour. I think this might stand out better in a lighter colour.



Flying Martini,
