We're getting ready to move so I figured I should document my little tiki bar in the living room, NoBikini Atoll. I know the ceiling and some of the shelves are white, I just never got around to painting them. Hopefully in the new place, I will have the space to do everything I wanted to do here.
The bar itself was made out of a shipping crate:
I put this coco joe's(?) guy on the front of the bar:
Covered the top with some weird Flintstones-esque linoleum:
Put a bunch of cocktail umbrellas in a styrofoam ball, it looks really neat when it is backlit with colored light:
And made some swizzle stick sputnik hangers. I stole the idea from my great grandmother's dining room:
I made this shelf a while back:
And a buddy made this one for me for my birthday a few years ago:
and a few of the other touches:
See you in Las Vegas with Nobikini Atoll 2.0
