Thanks, Dan! I just realized where I'd seen that tile pattern before, albeit in a different color palette...

We managed to get a little more work and decorating done in the Lanai before the cold arrived. It figures that its enarly ready for visitors just as the weather turns. Oh, well!


We found this fixture for above the vanity in the bathroom, and "tikified" it a bit by adding leather straps and bamboo:



I managed to get this tiny little sink installed in the bathroom, along with the massive braided leather mirror we found at Goodwill for only $10.



We also installed this hammered copper sink beside the tiki bar:


I think I already posted this on the music forum, but here are a couple of shelves that sit at the entrance to the Lanai. The idea would be that guests could select something for us to play on their way inside.


Next up, I decided to build some shelves for our glassware to go on the wall behind the tiki bar. We are limited in depth since I needed to allow the bar to be raised up (our washing machine sits inside). I built the frames out of pine, and painted them with the same dark coffee color we used for parts of the trim in the rest of the room.






We installed an anchor shaped towel bar neaxt to the bathroom sink, and found a toilet paper holder that actually has a cell phone shelf - hahaha:



And even though we still have some major parts to finish (like the ceiling), we went ahead and hung some pictures:



I doubt I'll be posting too many updates for a while, unless I find time to work on the days when we have warmer temperature. But I'm excited at how everything is turning out, and can't wait to get it done enough to invite people over!

HAPPY HULAWEEN EVERYONE!

Jeff

I really like how those vertical shelves turned out. Functional as well as stylish!

Now you need to get that wood stove installed in the middle of the room so that you can continue working even when it's icy out!

Yes, brilliant idea to angle the bottom of those shelves

Tell me about it!

Unfortunately, I have a few other house projects that are more pressing. But... hopefully soon!!

Just a brief update...the Lanai has mostly been on hold, but I did manage to get some lighting in there.

First, I saw this ceramic sconce at Home Depot and thought the flame shaped cut outs might work for me. There was no price tag for it, and nothing was in stock. It was apparently a wall display unit that they hadn't sold for a long time and was forgotten. The employee on the floor literally pulled it off the wall (still wired hot!) and sold it to me for $10.


After getting it home, I decided it needed some paint.


And here it is installed:


We recently got the power run to the tiki room, so we are literally seeing everything in a new light. Here's the light over the vanity in the bathroom, fully lit. It's difficult balancing visibility with tiki style lighting, since everything tends to be low light. In this case, we decided it was more important for guests to be able to see what they're doing in the bathroom!


I'm hoping to get more work done this spring, but I'm tied up with our kitchen build out, which is no fun while you are living in it!

Cheers!

Thanks, Lori! Since our home is only about 500 square feet, we definitely appreciate the extra entertaining space that our screened tiki room offers. Its pretty much our living room. And it's nice to have a bathroom so close by!

I just finished looking through the entire thread, can't believe it escaped me all this time. Love what you have done with this addition to your house and keep those pictures coming.

Thanks, hiltiki! Hoping to get more work done in the next few weeks once I've finished our kitchen.

Cheers!

Our kitchen remodel is still kicking my ass, but I've managed to add a few new items to the Lanai.

First, I had my eye on this area above the entry patio door. Our bar is so tiny that there really isn't room for both glassware and alcohol storage. So, I decided that this area above the door could use a shelf and I could store bottles up there. As a bonus, it's out of reach of the kids.



I painted the wall a caramel color and built a long, wide cabinet/shelf. It's supported from both the wall and ceiling above.


I added an extra vertical support in the middle and decided that was a good place for this chunky candle holder sconce.


I'm finally starting to get the wall decor up in certain areas of the room:


We found this little red boat at a thrift store, and thought it would hold smaller mugs and salt/pepper shakers. It was pretty beat up in certain spots, so I went ahead and sanded the paint away more evenly. I then added a quick coat of polyurethane.


I built a bit of shelving around it, added some bamboo behind it, and installed it near the aforementioned alcohol cabinet/shelf.


I know some folks frown at the inclusion of surfboards in tiki rooms, but we spotted these neat little bamboo cutting boards for cheap, and knew we'd find a use for them.



I poly coated them, built a little shelf and attached it, turning them into wall sconces for flickering led candles.


More pix coming soon!

Jeff

Surfboards are a nice touch.

Surfing was invented by, and practiced throughout Polynesia. Mark Twain watched Hawaiians surfing when he visited the islands. Apologize for nothing, Jeff!
