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.

As you can see, design just took shape- need to work w/ the size of your space. Starting the back wall also....
Design just evolved w/ what I had on hand...

Searched hardware, craft stores for the right "tiles".... Found the brown/tan tiles for beer glass @ lowes on clearance, same w/ the white glass tiles for the"glass", red vase fillers did the job for the "wine", beads @ AC Moore for rocks glass
Almost there!! On this part anyway....

    Yeah, moral and mural, two so different things.

    I think the title is supposed to say "mural" not "moral". Unless it was meant to be a pun...
