So what would you do?
How could you make this into a Tiki bar light that would work well
in your bar?

Ok, right or wrong here it is.
This is what I did to Tikify this light.
PS the cord looks like in this photo that it comes out on the left.
But that is the cord to light in the background.
The cord for this light goes up the sides and in through the chain.
All tucked in nice and neat.

That's what it should have looked like from the beginning Skip, another excellent tiki bar illumination piece!

Thanks all,
And Tiki Shark I don't do these often as buying the light and then putting
even more money into the light it can add up fast.
But I always look for light parts everywhere I go.

It costs less to make one totally out of rattan really.

With this light it was hard to get the sizing right as the top and bottom
of the globe has threads.
So this made matching the holes in the shade and the side handles kinda tricky
to get even.

And Mike, it is made of cork, so no burlap.


more to come....

Here's a short Tikiskip how to.
And I know these are not tiki but more things that would
go well with your tiki bar or Luau, Hawaiian and or tropical dιcor.

Here's our mailbox, not too tiki but for the Bosko sign (not shown)
It had one of those turned ball things before.
Just add Fisherman tiki.

Granted nothing really brilliant but it's an idea you may be able to
use at your home.
