One of the most satisfying things you can do in your home is to truly make it your own, turning it into a reflection of your personality, values, interests, and individuality.
You can paint a room in your favorite color, hang artwork that speaks to you, or set up your furniture in a way that suits your needs.
And if you’re like Reddit user thepassionofthechris (who we’ll call Chris for short), you want to bring color and flavor into your home in a way that no one who visits will ever forget.
Chris wanted to spice up his kitchen with a splash of color. The look in the kitchen was clean and modern, with lots of tile and granite, but was a mainly neutral color palette with grays, browns, and blacks.
He wanted the color to be front and center.
He opted to make a centerpiece to the room that would instantly grab people’s attention, but also make it food related.
And luckily, he happened to have quite an extensive collection of bottle caps at his disposal, as well as a brand new kitchen bar top that was ready to be installed.
Bottle caps have been a favorite material of crafters and upcyclers for a long time, and have been used to create almost quilt-like tabletops and countertops. The caps often get overlooked, but they’re actually tiny little works of art in their own rights.
The bottle cap countertop took a lot of very careful sorting, planning, and arranging, as well as a few mistakes. But in the end, Chris ended up with a truly unique piece that adds a pop of color and personality to his kitchen.
