Our Basement is definitely going to have a Tiki Bar. It will have soft-focus 70’s paintings (or possibly needlepoints) of doe-eyed tropical naked women on the walls. It will have shag carpeting. Cocktails will be served in multicolored aluminum drinking cups. And in the corner will sit one of these beauties

  1. Loves it! I think I like the Chalet best. It reminds me of a sewing machine.

  2. i like the chalet too, but there’s a place in my heart for the corona. it might have something to do with the polynesian girl on it, who in my head, matches your decor.

  3. Are you making fun of my antique metal multi colored drinking cups?
