I saw this idea on pinterest and thought it looked cool. Didn't really think to much more about it. Then my hubby went on a business trip the same week that some stressful/bad things happened and I was needing some distractions.
I started the week by ripping up all the carpet in our bedroom to reveal a tired, wood floor. Eventually we'll refinish it, but for now we're ok with some throw rugs over the worst of it and living that way. That project went much smoother than I could imagine so my mind ran to find something else to focus on.
The bottle cap backsplash took control in my mind. After doing some measuring and seeing that I had the perfect piece of plywood to base it on, I poured out the beer caps we've been collecting for years and spread them out. I would have just enough!!! So, some mastic, grout and lots of time and work, here is what happened.
