Build a decorative window wall with booze and beer bottles??


Old jars, beer bottles, soda bottles, wine and liquor bottles- save 'em all… the more colorful the better too…

Want some blue mixed into that wall? Suck down some Luna de Luna wine. A little brown? Toss in some budweiser bottles. Green? Yuengling works… and so on. Again, jars, and even yard sale vases work well too.

HOW? Frame out a wooden border, lay the bottles as you'd like them, and pour in some concrete (ideally a kind with a binding additive). Then, once hard enough to remove the frame safely, do so, and wipe any of the concrete/grout haze from the exposed surfaces of the bottles. Then frame this piece into a wall as you would a window- although, being much heavier, it will need additional framing support…

  1. Hello Boaters,

    I am a development TV producer always on the hunt for new shows and larger than life characters. Currently, I am working for a large cable network and developing a show called, Life on the Hook - which would follower sea-steaders and boatmen alike who live self sufficient lives at sea for extended periods of time. Now we just need to find our larger than life characters who live life on the hook! Think Life Below or Zero or Mountain Men but on a boat.

    So if catching rain water and filtering it, fishing and growing vegetables on your boat, using composting toilets is your thing - I would love to speak with you and hear more! IF this isn’t you, but you know who would be perfect - please send them to me as well. Thanks and look forward to hearing from you.
