I'm late to the show but just wanted to say incredible work on all aspects of your bar. Really inspirational.

I understand that you painted the sky blue but what type of project or did you use to get the stars and the soft lighting on the ceiling

I use this for projector: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009S3IBI8/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1455516938&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=lazer+twilight+projector

The "nebula" really makes the effect...

I'm in love with this! The diorama and the starry night effects are fantastic. I've been playing around with fishbowl dioramas, but your Blue Bayou is shaping up wonderfully!

Quick Visual Update....

Basically I completed Landscape, Distress Painting House and conducted some basic Lighting Tests. Still need to build/paint boat top and...gulp...pour the epoxy for the water effect.
