After you pop the top off a tasty craft brew, what do you do with that cap? I bet you throw it away. That’s what we typically do. That is, until we saw what KegWorks.com did with 60,000 bottle caps.
Last August, the company used its blog to alert their customers and fans of an idea that they had and asked for their help. Their newly renovated office space included 459 square feet of empty wall, and they wanted to cover it entirely in bottle caps. The only problem was, they’d estimated they’d need about 60,000 caps to make it happen.
Their readers (and a few breweries) rose to the occasion, and the caps started to pour in. Within a couple of months, the wall was covered in magnetic sheeting and the caps started to make their way onto the wall (after they’d been cleaned, of course.)
The project, now completed, took a total of two months. Check out the two minute time-lapse video of how it all came together above and find out more at the KegWorks.com blog. You might look at a cap differently before tossing it. We sure do. We’re planning on building our office completely out of caps.
