Redesigning an Outdoor Tiki Bar near Lake

liza123May 4, 2014
We bought a house with an outdoor, covered tiki bar that is a couple decades old. It has a sink/frig cabinets/bar area. It's a wonderful space, but needs a little sprucing up. It feels a little like a damp, dark cave. We don't want to paint the natural wood because of the upkeep over the years, but we'd like to liven it up with some color. We'd also like to add some racks for storing fishing gear, kayak paddles, floats, etc. Also, our budget is pretty low. Any suggestions are very welcome!! Thank you!!!

You can have a much more attractive space with little cash outlay by adding colour.

for example, go to lower priced shops like Target, TJMaxx & find some art to add on walls which will add pops of colour

paint the stools bright colours

get the spray paint which works on plastic and spray paint the white plastic chairs

place outdoor rugs on floor to introduce more colour

paint the wood beams

hang some colourful paper lanterns & coloured mini lights
