Pandas Love Bamboo

Standard

All pandas find bamboo to be very tasty. I am no exception. However, rather than eat it, I prefer to use bamboo wherever possible to gussy up the Tiki Lounge. This applies both inside and outside. Here are some examples.

Polynesian Powder Room

Bamboo is everywhere in this DIY project: the flooring, the side table-turned-vanity for the sink, the bookcase-turned-shelf. Even the pewter-colored fixtures are molded to look like bamboo!

SHAG Flamingo Room Home Theatre

The bamboo here is a little more subtle, from the trim around the movie screen to the corner moulding (hiding bad plaster work). My latest effort turned the roof from my second Tiki bar into decorative roofing for two of my SHAG prints.

Mr. Panda’s Tiki Bar and Game Room

The two Tiki bars are obviously made of bamboo, but check out the cool director chair barstools and the natural floor rug.

Deck and Landscaping

Though the deck and railing are made of composites, the facing had to be black bamboo. Since the fencing rolls I ordered were too tall, I had to trim 6 inches from top and bottom to make it work. So why did I save all of those 6″ scraps of bamboo? Why, edging the gardens, of course. Waste not, want not!
