We have a lovely house here in southern Georgia with 4 original coal fireplaces. The tile in our dining room fireplace was old and badly damaged so after some Google inspiration and pricing new tiles, we went with pennies!! Check out our penny fireplace +the custom R for our last name. This was all majorly impart to our friend Dirk who is the expert when it comes to tile work and remodeling things.

Every other penny is fliped head to bottom with some treasure hunts along the way ;)
A littleless than 5400 pennies, reused base molding, Bondera used for the penny adhesive,brown grout, and 2 coats of poly urethane.
Time: 1 Weeks Cost: $200 Difficulty: Moderate

Got a question about this project?

    I've been thinking of doing the penny tile on my window cabinet top. I have cats who love to look out the window where there is lots of sunshine. Do the pennies get hot? Thanks!
