Beer bottle cap wall & floor

Wanted to do something different w/ my upstairs bathroom (it is a working tavern). Plenty of bottle caps, so I used them!!
Starting by filling caps w/ drywall compound, so they would be solid like a tile. Then, I just got down on the floor to work out the beginnings of a pattern... Wanted a "rug" look. Set tiles w/ tile mortar.
