Penny for your Floor?

If you're like me, I get annoyed when I find random pennies stuffed in the bottom of my purse, the couch cushions, sprinkled throughout my desk, etc.  It's time to save your pennies because this design has me floored (sorry, had to do it).

Zinc Door linked to it on their Facebook page & immediately shared it. I couldn't find the original source, but a quick google search brought up images of a lot of other projects.  They are all so fun & cheaper than other traditional materials (this site mentioned a total of just over $38 for appx. 24 square feet).

& Nickels!  Obviously going to cost you quite a bit more in materials ;) but it looks so...cool.  I really can't come up with another word!

Searching around also led to penny kitchen islands, accent walls, etc.  I love them all.  You could even tackle this DIY style if you have a lot of time & patience!

I love that look - it's so much fun!

I have a feeling that the only way to tackle this would be 'DIY style'. I can't see pro flooring guys being too happy being presented with a bag of pennies! Although, Canada has stopped making pennies, so maybe we'll see an upswing of penny floors?
I remember reading the original article those first pictures came from, but I didn't save the site, sorry!

Rycrafty - oh yeah, duh! Can you imagine the look on a contractors face if you handed him a sack of pennies and a tube of super glue?! Funny :)

Oh wow, that is neat! Never would have thought of doing something like that.

This is a crazy yet fun idea! Really love to do this but I don't have too much time. Maybe I can get a few volunteers from the neighborhood.

Kristin, I'm your second cousin but haven't seen you for awhile! Your Mom and Pete visited us over the weekend.
We had a fun time laughing and drinking lots of beer. Janet told me about your website and I'm very impressed.
