Maybe you’ve been holding onto bottle caps for years. Maybe you want to start. You’ll need quite a few (thousands, perhaps) to make this project happen, depending on the size of your bar. Many people mix and match all the colors. It’s an awesome conversation piece in a home bar or kitchen. People enjoy seeing their favorite breweries and brands lining the counter.

If you browse the Internet for ideas, you’ll see sports teams’ logos and other sweet designs. Get inspired before you start your DIY bar top. You might decide to do something classic, whimsical, or even humorous.

One of the best designs we saw was a rainbow effect with the caps grouped by color. Work your way down the bar top color after color. Pretty soon, you’ll have beautiful, vibrant stripes.

If you’ve been hoarding corks, now it’s time to use them. Some of you may need to tell your friends you’re collecting these for a project. But isn’t this stunning? It’s somehow both rustic and luxurious. It’s wine country and sophistication, yet it’s fun and super charming. We think more bar tops should look like this one.

You could certainly tweak the cork arrangement. But this pattern is an amazing option. Wouldn’t glasses of glimmering wine look terrific atop this beauty?

4) Concrete Bar Top

If you have more of an industrial or modern farmhouse style, go for concrete. The color is great. And the surface is eye-catching, for sure. This can be a wonderful accent piece in any room. You’ll have to pay attention to the details, though. It’s not an easy process. Leveling the concrete can be difficult, but it’s a huge payoff.
