My husband and I need a fun bedroom. Kitchy, retro, not too girly. Sooooo Tiki it is. I only have a few items here and not the entire room.
This is Dolly the nightlight. She's not technically crafty. I just dressed her. But she is the COOLEST thing ever. She is a maidenform bra and girdle display model with a lightbulb in her belly that makes her glow. My husband used her as decoration when he DJ'd. I think she looks better dressed. The scarf around her waist glows blue.
A $5 yardsale dresser. Painted bright high gloss retro turquoise. I just painted some nifty tiki guys on the drawers with craft acrylics. I have one drawer left to do, but we needed the storage space before I was done. We have a second cast away dresser painted the same blue that I have yet to add tiki guys to. I am waiting and searching for the perfect drawer pulls. Id do my own, but have no fimo talents.
Lastly, the tiki pillow. I just threw him together one night. He pops much more in real ife. A single row of machine stitching over a thin layer of quliters batting give his face a 3-D effect. Hes just a lopsided rectangle with ears sewn into the seams.
