So my friends and I decided that we wanted to make a table for our apartment next year. However we could not find one we liked and we wanted something unique and a focal point of our living space. So what is a crafter to do make one themselves.
We decided to go with the beer caps after seeing one my god brother made. We got all of the caps from my brother who lives in a fraternity house at school and ones we found around school.
We went with resin because of the clean look that it gives. This was my first time working with resin but I think it went really well. Except for the fact that we got halfway through and ran out of resin and had to drive an hour to get more that kind of messed me up. But I just love how it came out and cant wait to put legs on it when we move in. (does not fit in storage with the legs so we are just adding them later).
We used 2232 caps total (3' x 7' total) so we had a whole lot left over so we made some coasters, just for fun.
