Sorry for the shakiness.. I was trying to video over our happy dancin' 3 year old!
The fence behind the retaining wall was surrounded by years worth of organic material and was rotting.
These wood slats had seen better days, the gate wouldn't even open when we first moved in (who doesn't take a trip to explore their own woods???)
with awesome new big gate that can fit a canoe through it
|Love sighting the egrets and herons that frequent the lake|
|So I traversed a small dam to get into Bayou Chinchuba (more water to explore), paddled around a bend, and this was in my way... till next time, Bayou Chinchuba. I will figure a way around these trees.|
|I was not invited to this geese party.|
|most random place to store one's rollerblades!|
|The naked table, ready for action. This table was purchase in May 2000. The top was basically stripped off due to my lack of knowledge at the time of the damage cleaners can do to wood tabletops. It was used for hundreds of art projects, and therefore went through many cleanings.|
|Lauryn working on row 1.|
We used New Belgium for row 1.
The white New Belgium caps were from their winter brews.
We were a big fan of "2 Below" and "Snowed In".
You will see in the finished product just how many red bottle caps we had!
|Rows 2 and 3.|
Row 2 was Sweetwater and Highland.
Row 3 was mostly Sierra Nevada with some Lagunitas.
We did 4 or 5 Sierra Nevade/Lagunitas with a Victory cap, Harpoon cap, and then "Beer From Around Here" which is Red Brick Brewing in ATL.
|Row 4 was a bunch of miscellaneous brews that I categorized as ones we really liked,.|
To name a few, there are Rogue, Stone, Oberon, Bell's, Terrapin.. and lots more.
|Almost done gluing. Well, the whole right side has a good many left that are loose.|
I added some CDs of top tunes in the Blanchard memory bank.
|This was probably 2 glasses of wine and 3 hours deep of gluing.|
|Camryn graced me with her presence toward the end of the project again.|
She helped glue down some loose ends.
|The LAST cap that I glued down around 10:30 PM.|
|Ready to pour!!!|
|It seems that the resin is right up to the top of most of the bottle caps.|
I am thinking one more full coat in 4 hours will be enough to cover all.
|Here is part of my mess.|
