The custom countertop that you see was made out of five years’ worth of bottle caps collected with the help of the DIY-er’s family and friends. Their initial plan was to layout images using the bottle caps but instead opted to create an easier gradient effect. They initially wanted to make clear color transitions, but they had way more blackcaps than the other colors for them to achieve the desired effect. The solution – they decided to just let the colors “flow” and overlap with each other. You can view the gallery below to better see how the bottle caps are laid out! 🙂

Aside from the gathering period, sorting the bottle caps took the builders a lot of time. It also took a few tries of arranging the bottle caps until they were satisfied with the look. This DIY project is indeed time-consuming from start to finish. But the result shows that it was definitely worth the wait!
