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.

Starting pattern of floor

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...

So intense, but such a cool look

Almost there.....

Wanted simplicity on the rest of the walls, so I found large size subway tiles 4x 8 & 6x6 white tiles

Starting the walls, again design evolved whil

And did a contrasting border

Working my way up the wall

I am about 7-8 weeks into the project ( said very intense, huh?! I do get some crazy ideas....

Wall needed more than bottle cap art...

Toilet set under this area of wall- needed built in artwork....

Tiles, jar fillers, whatever I could find

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....

Wanted a foamy beer, went shopping for some!!! Found different sizes of white & clear beads @ AC Moore, & Michaels

Check out the beer foam! Different size beads from AC Moore, michaels

Will add the final pics as soon as I go to take them!
