Great start Ido! Now that you have a router, some hawaiian style moulding around that window would look good if you put silver sun screen film on the glass. What’s behind that window?
Keep the pix coming-looking good!

I think you're off to a good start and the fish tank is very striking. I'd be on the lookout for a cheap bamboo shade for that window - WAY easier than making one yourself!!! I've seen them in Big Lots, Christmas Tree Shops and other discount places in my area.

Have fun!

Thanks for the tips!

I know ALL the white mouldings and white doors have got to go!

And the window looks out to the front yard/street... not much to look at.

I got a matching pair of Peacock Chairs for the Bar; the black leather ones just didn't fit the vibe. Pics in the room to come.

Made a trip to Forbidden Island before the sidewalk sale to get a couple mugs before they're gone!
TikiCentral keeps placing my pics sideways....

Hi there - just caught up with the work you're doing and it looks just great! I'm envious of your mug collection and that last peacock chair, wow. I want one!!!

Keep doing that voodoo that you do so well.

Thanks! I'm doing what I can, with the small budget I have!
Anyways, I need to update a couple things I corrected:

No more white door, painted a light tan.


No more white blinds!


Vintage Capiz Hanging Lamp behind Bar.

Was that the chair that was listed on eBay in Newark?

Yes! I live in Newark, so it worked out perfectly.It was on Craigslist as well. The couple I bought it from had it in storage for years and years. It belonged to the Woman's Mother, who purchased it sometime in the 60's, she believes. The couple is in their early to mid 50's, and if their Mother had purchased it, the timing could fit. It is definitely old, but in perfect shape.
