Your WWII collection would look really cool with lauhala mat on the walls. I love the items that you have.




Thanks! Yes, thats the next step, gonna do half/half painted walls and lauhala as well as Im painting the doors and furniture to look like it was assembled from Navy wood ammo crates....

Great theme, I really look forward to the development of you other areas as well. Side note, my grandfather was in the first medic crew that flew into Nagasaki after the bomb was dropped. He took a sword from a Japanese general, which my Dad still has mounted in his office. Sharkskin handle, all the details, but the blade is actually military issue, but sharp as a razor still to this day. Your collection reminded me, so I thought I would mention it.



thank you sir! love to see a pic of your grandfathers captured sword!!

Great concept. I always felt that the Pacific Theater of WWII gave birth to the tiki culture that we have been enjoying ever since. The returning sailors and airman brought home souvenirs and stories of paradise that fueled the fantasy of exotic islands. So I think the military and tiki themes go hand in hand. I myself am a bit of a militaria collector but my focus has mainly been the European Theater. Still, combining the Pacific and Tiki has always been an idea rattling around in my head so it's nice to see it in practice. Nice work!

Thanks Paul. I don't have any military items yet, so will definitely be linking with you. We have a big military surplus store here in the Sacramento area so I can always snag something from there. http://actionmilitarysurplus.com/

The garage will definitely be a blended style. It will mostly serve as my music room. I have a lot of things already just need to start organizing. I want to paint the walls and have to build a dividing wall, have the carpet, a large electric fireplace, bamboo stands and the instruments. I will be using this thread as inspiration. Thanks so much for posting all the awesome pictures and offering to help...you are the best!!!

NICE !! I'd keep it crusty looking. Along the lines of a B-24 after fifty missions over enemy territory. I love this stuff. I have a bunch of inert goodies I have yet to incorporate into the bar. Keep us update.

Yea, Ive got an artist friend who's going to do the art work, then hang it over the bar itself! im hoping to get enough rattan and luau matting material for the ceiling and half walls, to make it look like a 1945 era Officers club or Team House...keeping everything in it circa 1940s looking. Ive got some cool period photos of E-Club and officers lounges/clubs from the pacific just gotta decide how to finish it! of course its never done lol
