Tiki Hut/Bar Mural finished.
This is the before shed with the wall removed and Joel put in the countertop and sink.  He used an old door to cover the front of the bar but Im painting it.  That hand wants a hand-out too.

I always debate when I finish a project, whether to post or not because I tend to overthink my recycle projects but I like this one.   So, this is an old shed in back of my friend's house and her boyfriend, Joel.  They didn't want to tear it down so they took down some of the wall boards and used the half wall to make a tiki hut/bar that faces their pool.  Its not totally finished yet, I'm still commissioned to use their castoffs to recycle into the bar. I have some of their old wood being made into a sign and lots of fun tiki bottles for the decor but thats the next post.  She and I bartered for mural work on their bar.  I was able to buy my new car.  This was a really cool project.
