Love these countertops

So I don't have a great excuse for replacing my countertops. The previous owners replaced with some decent laminate (the color is not my favorite, but it's not awful) that is holding up well. But that doesn't stop my from ogling all the fantastic eco-friendly countertop options out there. I recently ran across a new favorite: this recycled glass surface made with Skyy vodka bottles. Those bottles are made with the most beautiful blue glass, and I think this just looks great.

    Oh I LOVE cobalt glass. I've even thought of starting to drink the alcohol that comes in cobalt bottles just make something with them, but alas, I haven't.

    Becky, I don't recommend starting a heavy drinking habit just to make cool countertops. Just buy them.

  • Becky, i do recommend it, you wont ever find a better excuse. lol

    So you think I should start drinking Colorado Bulldogs again Burco? :^D They have a little Vodka in them. If I remember correctly, I've not had one since the late seventies, they

    Oooh, I haven't had a Colorado Bulldog for about 15 years. I forgot about them. They are really tasty. Basically a White Russian with cola, right?
  • Becky Blair, NE
    That is correct Steve. Though I had to look up what a White Russian was, but yes, that is correct.

    Becky, you must not have seen "The Big Lebowski" 100 times.
  • Becky Blair, NE
    You are correct on that one Steve. I have not seen "The Big Lebowski". In fact I had to look that up to see just what it was. Thought the soundtrack would be to my liking though. CCR, Eagles, Santana etc.... the movie isn't exactly a chic flick. LOL.

    No, not a chick flick (and not exactly family fare either), but probably my favorite movie ever. The main character drinks White Russians through the entire movie, and we watch him make quite a few.

    I think I'll stick with Somewhere in Time as my favorite movie ever. I do believe your taste in movies is closer to my son's. :^)

    Hey Steve G I love the blue also! I saw2 some gorgeoius vodka bottles at Bimart recently. Made me want to buy the vodka just for the bottle. Now I love Kahlua..but the bottles are not so pretty.Kahlua over ice cream, pound cake...yum yum! haha
