How much did the parts cost y'all in total? We've started assembling the needed material and so far we are just around $60.

Thanks

Question One more question...

We have 1 more question.

We could only find the big globe without a "neck". if anyone else used a "neckless" one, how did you attach it to the post where you would be able to take off the head to change the bulb?

Thanks Again!

I didn't keep a total but I would say around $60 for the whole thing. The most expensive thing was the big globe if I remeber it was about $12.

Where did you all find the globes ???? I've looked everywhere for them. Are you using 12" and 8" ??? Or 10" and 6" ???

We found ours at the THIRD Home Depot we visited...nothing at Lowe's around here.

The big globe, 10", was $22 on clearance for $5! The 6" globes were $6.99 ea. The little ones have "necks" while the big one does not.

Now we have to figure out how to attach the big one to the post without a neck...

I used the 8" and the 6" globes I could not find any bigger than 8". I got everything at my local Home Depot.

I have the best DH around, On the Mickey lamp post, he built the post on 3/4" plywood and drilled holes in each corner to place a tent stack to anchor the light into the ground. We did have a problem with the big globe cracking while cutting the 3" hole for the ears. Thank goodness for glue - at least until I can find another 12" globe. He did not glue the pvc pipe together so we can take most everything apart for easier travel in the motorhome.

He finished the project last weekend for our upcoming trip to Ft Wilderness on November 11th for a week.

What more could a person ask for.

I wondered if any of you thought about painting the inside of your globes lime green? I was thinking of drizzling acrylic paint inside and rolling it around to coat it lightly. Any thoughts on whether this would be a bad idea or not? I would probably use one of the new low wattage flourescent bulbs, and thought acrylic paint would be less flamable than spray paint or something else.

Any thoughts??

i built mine out of 3" pvc and used a 3" by 4" reducer and clear silconed the globes to the reducer so the reducer and the globes are one piece and the bulb is in the post.

I have seen a few with a color changing light inside. Does anyone know if it is just a bulb or what?!

I think I've seen the color changing bulbs, so that's probably what it was.

I'd still like to know if it would be a good idea or not to coat the inside of the globes with lime green paint

My sis in law did some clear Christmas ornaments with some kind paint a couple years ago. She put some red, green and white in and shook them up. It looked really cool. I'll see what she used. I like the paint inside the bulb idea. I guess a light green bulb would work as well.
