1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bottle Cap Table Top on: January 29, 2004 07:55:49 AM
Beer Caps were not my first choice, but being in college has provided me with this plentiful material!

I hope you enjoy my first post!
 
I bought an inexpensive table and took a trip to the hardware store for some plaster and a container of Acrylic Latex Tile Mortar and Grout - the kind with NO SAND: it will scratch your bottle caps.

The process is simple:
Fill bottle caps with plaster and let them dry a few days. (You now have tiles)
Roughen the table surface and spread a layer of mortar on top, placing the 'tiles' where you want them.
Let dry according to package directions. (usually overnight)
Spread layer all over the top and into the spaces between.  Wipe off the tiles themselves and let dry a few days.
DONE!

This was a housewarming present for a friend of mine. He and his girlfriend love it!  (At least thats what they told me!)
