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.

    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?

    That is correct Steve. Though I had to look up what a White Russian was, but yes, that is correct.

    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. :^)
