This is SO awesome.
Thrilled to find this amazing mirror at Goodwill for only 10 bucks! We will use it in the bathroom, above the vanity. It's got black and tan braided leather and some intricately carved details along the outer edge. It needs a couple of repairs and some touch up paint, but what a killer deal. The woman at the checkout counter actually thanked me for buying it, as she said she was tired of moving it around the store.
I also picked up these instrument gauges for cheap. I realize they are more "nautical" theme than tiki, but we always like to have a thermometer hanging on the wall, so I figured I would try to incorporate them into the tiki room.
First things first, take them apart, tape them off, and give them a new paint job:
Then, build a custom frame for them to sit in:
Then I wrapped them in EPDM gasket material, and compression fit them into the holes:
Next up, our first roll of bamboo!! This will be used as wainscoting on the lower wall of the bathroom:
I didn't like the light tone, so I brushed on some "Polyshades" stain and polyurethane:
Then, I built a small ledge for them to sit on, same depth as the bamboo, and installed them:
