I really like what you have done this year. The boardwalk looks great and the "Float" light looks very convincing. By not tinting the globe you can always switch out the lightbulb if you want a different look. Maybe blacklight for halloween? Just sayin'.

I also wanted to mention that I finally made two fake fishing float lights. I really wanted a Tiki Skip one but I had these two plastic globes I bought for our outdoor light poles that I couldn't use b/c they had seams in them that were taking up space in the garage and taunting me with my mistake. (They were non-returnable.) So I was going to attempt weaving a net for them when Murph posted that he used a cotton basketball net. It took me a little while to find a couple online but I got them, dyed them with a bunch of teabags to make them less white and bought a pendant light kit from the home improvement store. And also, cause I'm lazy and kind of in a rush I used colored light bulbs instead of trying to tint poly and paint the inside of the globes.

I put one in the bar and one in the hut. They won't pass the authentic test but I'm happy with them and all of my house guests won't know the difference! I'd prefer to have one of Skip's lights but these I made myself, didn't cost a lot of $ and most importantly reused something that was garbage to me and taking up space.

Thanks Murph!!!
Edited to add that the light isn't so bright in person. It's a nice green glow....

You're welcome! It looks great....They're a fun and simple thing to make for your tiki bar.

Thanks Vampiress! And GROG, any time you want to party, I'll host! I keep thinking about that line from Field of Dreams - "If you build it, they will come." Maybe one day there will be a West Coast invasion of my yard. How cool would that be?!?!?

Mahalo!

No worries Lori, not a flat roof, but its a ranch with a low pitch.

I love the boardwalk that you added. It's been really cool watching it all come together.
