Find a rental place that mixes their own concrete and they should have them. I got mine from Tomball Rental

I really like the aged tin for the drop ceiling, where can you find that stuff?

Our local county dump has a no pilfering policy so what goes in the gate stays behind the gate, except of course what the gate attendant and county workers want for themselves.

I got some off a guy's old porch. Craig's list is a good place to look sir.

That is a first class watering hole Mitch!

Any more plans in the works?

Maybe turn the garage into an outdoor kitchen?

Now you've got me thinking! I still have to stain the concrete and I'm seriously thinking about continuing the "theme" behind the bar on the North wall. I also am going to make it fully enclosed with flip up style sides and saloon doors. Problem is, every time I go back there I end up drinking more than working.

You would not regret turning that garage into an outdoor kitchen.

It is perfect, especially now that you have an awesome outdoor bar.

In SW Louisiana all get-togethers center around the outdoor kitchen.

If you have an outdoor kitchen you have the ultimate place to host a Fish fry, BBQ, or crawfish boil. Not to mention hanging out with your huntin’ buddies, family outings, game night, poker night, deer/sausage processing, or just drinking a cold one. Adding a kitchen presents endless possibilities.

Great job sir! Let's see .... A old time juke box loaded up with some old 45s of good beer drinking songs then to modernize it maybe a 60 incher flat screen to watch a little sports shows. Nothing better than a great place just to hang out and CHILL

Much appreciated. Going to keep staining the outer and 1 inner wall after work this week. I am going to make some saloon doors and have the sides flip up so there's still a lot of work to do. Fishing season is here so I'm sure progress will slow down.

What did you use on the concrete?

Whisker fish aren't in full swing yet so I think you got a couple weekends Hybrids and whites on the other hand. ......

http://www.wooddefender.com/ I highly recommend this stuff. It is more expensive than most other but it is by far the best stain/wood preserver I have ever used. We just treated our 100+ yr school house/ camp house with it. This is before treatment. Will try to find an after pic.

I think it's called Valero concrete stain. I picked it up at Lowes and applied it with a sprayer. I got a call yesterday that the shad were piling up on the bulkhead.

Got home the other day and my power pole was on the ground with a busted hose. Gotta get it fixed before Friday. If I have an opening I will holler.

Went to a benefit last night and made the ultimate score. I ended up with 5 or 6 neons but there was one that was gonna be mine no matter the cost. I will post pics later today once they're all hung.
