Thanks for the encouragement guys It's getting closer to what I want. Got the pond about done, some art hung on the wall, the Beast Tiki stood up and lighted, another big section of the floor stained.

Thanks Hilda. Here's a few more shots

Nighttime


Still have plenty of room to grow


I really like the looks of the acid etch/stain for the concrete. It's a little work but well worth it.

I tried an experiment and I like it. I intentionally left gaps between the bricks surrounding the pond so that I could put red LED rope lights behind them

Thanks you David. Since I upgraded my water feature to a bigger and better one, my old one was sitting unused. I cut a 2 circles out of blue foam insulation, put them in the tubs and covered them with a thin layer of aquarium gravel. The fish and lily pad are ceramic, will add a few more later

That fake water feature is too funny, Mike. Put everything to good use! I'm looking forward to seeing how your build-out goes. Looks like your covered patio is similar to my setup, so I'll be wanting to steal all your good ideas!

Thanks Jayme, steal away - that's why we are here It doesn't show well in this pic but I think the "water spout" is funny too. Originally water spilled from the upper pond to the lower pond though the "bamboo" tube (which needs to be re-painted). I took a coil of Sculpty clay and rolled it in the aquarium gravel, shaped it to be the spout of "water" and oven baked it

Working on some jade tiles, posted them on my thread in "Other Crafts"

I had a bathroom window that faced out onto the patio that I wanted to cover. Jade tiles seemed the perfect solution but they are expensive and the standard 12x12 inch tiles are too big. So I made ten 8x8 inch ceramic tiles, wired & tied them together, and wired them in place
