Congrats on the house. We're lucky that we still have some of these (mostly) untouched time capsule here in Southern Cali. You did such a great job on your Jungle Cruise yard that I didn't realize it was such a small space. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the new one.



Thanks so much!! yea my patio here is something like 20 x 12 feet!! so I had to cram a bunch of crap into a small space! thank god the new place is huge!!! and I don't have an HOA to deal with and I can build up if I need to lol!!!
Everyone in the so cal area is invited to a house warming party once we get in and get settled and when it warms up lol!!! FREE DRINKS all around!!!!
thanks guys!!! I so love this forum and being able to share my love of tiki and the whole culture!!!

Well after fixing up & restoring an old 50s home (The Atomic Tiki Lounge)
I can offer some tips, don't be afraid to buy vintage furniture that
is not in the best shape & restore it yourself, if you don't mind the work, you can save a ton of money

you can easily refinish cabinet doors & by replacing the handles & door pulls with new modern hardware
can make a big difference for just a little work & money.

Don't go cheap on counters, they will get scratched up in no time.

You can see what I have done here:

You are doing it right...planning ahead with pictures and adjusting how you want yours to look as helpful. I have my whole house done up in Power Point and it helped me to finalize my rooms.

Your place is gonna be smokin'...take your time and get your own groove.

What a gem you found--love all that original tile! Another great resource, of course, is retrorenovation.com--lots of tips there on working on midcentury homes. You have so many fun options to choose from when it comes to decorating, you're going to have a blast. Can't wait to see the final results. Congrats!

Congrats on the vintage home! Can't wait to see what you do with the space. I just finished working on a midcentury ranch, but not nearly as cool as ATP.
