I’ve been collecting bottle caps for a while now. I’ve found the designs and colors inviting. When we were in California last year, we ate at a pizza joint where you popped the top to your drink and the cap fell into a container. I asked the manager what she did with all the caps and she said if I wanted them I could take them. Well, golly gee! Thank you! Unfortunately, I could only take what I could carry in my pockets, purse and shirt. I’ve had friends save bottle caps and I have a basket where the few we have get deposited.
My first thought was to cover a coffee table I have in the basement. But after further research, it would’ve been a complete mess with the epoxy.
So what to do next…I searched through Pinterest for ideas.
Isn’t this totally cool?!?
Yea! My car!! I could hot glue bottle caps all over my car!!
Then I find these beautiful pieces of artwork by The Moore Family Artwork. They inspired me.
I got to work pulling 4 pieces of wood off a pallet to use for the base. Can I just say that this was NOT an easy task for me? I sweated, I grunted and I maybe even said a few cuss words. And yet…
After separating the caps by color into cups, I had fun playing around with the placement of the colors. This looks like we’re going in the right direction. Old Lilly is pretty curious about all the goings on up there.
Thanks for dropping by!
P.S.S. No, he doesn’t have a headboard to his bed. This will be another project for another day. I have my priorities people…Fish First!
