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

    Awesome work. I created a penny floor but I am really enjoying the fireplace. Lots of info on my website about doing this... including a template to lay the tiles onto mesh so you don't have to mess the house up until all the sheets are completed!
