We just redid the bathroom and added space for a 12"x30" countertop. It added more space but the problem is don't want to put anything on it to cover it up. Smiley It's  1"x1" glass tiles with this beautiful copper threaded thru it. We added a little yellow to the resin to warm it up and hard wired it into the same circuit as the overhead light.



The overall effect. Smiley

What a cool idea - I can see why you don't want to cover it up.  But I wonder how translucent or transparent glass or acrylic accessories would look on it, lit up from beneath by the counter.  Especially if there is some texture or iridecence to the piece - like a basin of bath crystals, epsom salts, or something.

That sounds like a great idea for a new craft project. Maybe something to tie the chrome and copper in together more.

SO BEAUTIFUL

i like the idea above, clear or frosted apothecary glass holding various bathroom stuff (cotton swabs/balls etc) would look very snazzy. I dont know if it would be overkill, but perhaps shiny/metallic containers to hold similar things (or things you don't want so visible in clear glass) would look nice in bronze/copper tones as well? i'm thinking anything non plasticky and either reflective or translucent would keep the light and warmth of the lighted countertop and not really cover it up too much

Thanks. Smiley

I'm going to keep it to one or two items. My husband loves empty horizontal surfaces.
