Default Drink like a fish?

First of all, No I did not drink all this beer myself. I'm not even sure that would be possible seeing as it only takes a few beers before I am mumbling incoherently and having "the best time of my life." I had PLENTY of help, lol!

I made this for my cousin's "man cave". The inspiration was of course the phrase "drink like a fish".

I started by laying the caps between two pieces of wood and hammering them flat. This took a few hours and I am proud to report I only hit my thumb twice! I drew out the fish on one of my old cabinet doors that I ripped out of kitchen (that's a whole 'nother story in itself). I layed the caps out, choose the colors and then began nailing them down, one by one. It actually came together alot easier than I thought it would. I added a little paint and a clear coat of sealant and BAM! It's a beer fish. Enjoy!

Default super cool

This is totally cute I have seen a lot of things done with bottle caps. I have seen a hole table covered with them with glass over it or them studded on a belt, but never in artwork like that.
