You know all of those containers full of pennies that you’ve been hoarding for whatever reason ? Well now you have something to do with them. Like Kelly Graham, owner of Etsy shop Camias Jewelry Designs, she decorated her floor using 7,500 real pennies.
“In a nutshell, the penny floor was a fun and cathartic project which I did back in 2015,” she writes. Using both old and new pennies (and if you look closely, just a few dimes to complement the copper), Graham arranged each coin to create her own variegated mosaic floor. After gluing each cent in place, she grouted the floor and coated it off with clear resin on top. “I’ve got a few kids and it still looks in top shape,” she says, speaking to the floor’s durability.
Take a look at her finished project:
Pretty cool. Here is a link to her story, how she did it, and how you can do the same thing. Hint: it doesn’t have to be that big.
