Still needs shelves, ceiling trim, and lighting/lots of crap hanging from the ceiling. Oh, and booze. But otherwise it's starting to be presentable, and the walls will continue to be cluttered up. Shout out to my Art Swap peeps from years past - see if you can spot your contributions to the clutter. This is in an 8x12 (96 sq ft) outbuilding in our back yard.

Some construction/work-in-progress photos.

Platform for the shed. This was at the end of May.


With common household items for scale. The empty burlap coffee sacks hanging on the right are to keep the inhabitants of our beehives away during construction.


Shed mostly finished - it was prefab, assembled on site.


This is the "West Elm" look. The sign is a street find by my teenager. Not permanent. Middle of June.


Paint! Lauhala matting! Fourthajuly long weekend.


Speaking of burlap... the wall coverings were a a happy accident. I ordered a textured jute wallpaper but the wrong color arrived. But it had the right catalog number, so I couldn't just re-order - the system had it wrong. I tried another retailer and my request for a sample went into the void. So I ordered some burlap instead. It's awesome. If you hang something with a nail and need to move it, the nail hole just vanishes. The fire retardant took forever to dry, though.


My wife sewed curtains for the upper window lights, faux tapa cloth c/o Spoonflower. The window and door trim is 2" bamboo slats from a local landscaping store. The ceiling is reed fencing. As noted upthread, there's trim coming for the perimeter and down the gap.


And then a photo from tonight, with a little accent lighting tossed in.

Thank you for posting the work-in-progress pictures. I love the result. The burlap looks great.

Very nice! I, too, love the progress photos. It's always nice (and super-helpful!) to see the effort that goes into these tiki bar builds.

I like it Joshua. I especially like the burlap idea, how did you mount it? Did you varnish over it? Burlap is fairly economical especially if you get it at Joann's with a 40% off coupon

The burlap is just stapled around the perimeter, using a sizable staple gun. I ordered a large enough roll to cover even the 11'x5' wall without a seam. I sprayed it with fire retardant, but otherwise it is untreated.
