Pebbles Not long ago you basked on the beach, but now you shiver chilly under a light blanket on cool evenings? There is an opportunity to warm up in another, active way, and even to settle a piece of summer in your kitchen. We suggest that you decorate the surface of the wall above the cutting part and above the ordinary pebble stove. Well, as usual ... Of course, it will have to be selected in color and caliber, depending on the pattern and texture of the future apron, as you conceived it. For the sake of an amazing effect, it is worth trying and collecting a couple of buckets of this building material, since the weather still allows you to wander along the sea or river bank. To make such an apron, you will need:
- Cement mortar;
- putty knife;
- Colorless varnish for finishing.
The process itself is simple and fascinating. You'll like it! Just lay the wall with pebbles, laying it flat or on the rib in a cement slurry applied to the wall. Begin the work from the bottom, so that the pebbles support each other, but do not forget to hold the next pebble for some time, so that it safely takes its place. After the entire cloth of the apron has dried, wipe the surface with a damp sponge, removing any excess cement spray. Wait a little longer and cover the surface with a colorless varnish. Now you can call your friends and invite them to visit. Wine corks Don't want to add to the interiorkitchen brutality using pebbles? You might also like another idea - to lay out an apron from wine corks. It's even easier thanks to the lightness of the source material. You will need:

However, then there will be less contact surface of the plug with the wall, which threatens with a sudden exposure of the front of the work due to the fallen part. It is better to cut each cork along, and if you're planning to lay out a skilful pattern and are ready to do this for a long time and painstakingly, you can cut the material across, so to speak, "on the heels." Open another bottle of wine for inspiration - and get creative! Wood The next sustainable finishkitchen apron material - wood.

Mirror tiles Glass in the apron finish - notnew idea. The originality is that we suggest using reflective surfaces instead of transparent glass. These can be mirrored tiles, narrow or square, or uneven pieces of plastic or metal covered with amalgam. Choose, and depending on the choice, do not forget to take:
- Adhesive for plastic or metal;
- A base of wood or other material on which you will attach details, forming blocks;
