Penny Countertop

5 days ago
Took our dated laminate counter and covered it in pennies and epoxy. Messed up a ton along the way, so if you'd like to do something similar check out my tutorial at

    Great idea. Love it. Here is another idea for using pennies as art. Happy crafting.

    In Canada we no longer use the penny, so no problems doing this project if you had a stash, stashed away.

    "alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes,falsifies, scales, or lightens any of the coins" She didn't do any of that. They could still conceivably be taken out of the epoxy and put back into circulation.

    Pennies are not consider legal tender, so it is fine to do this.

    I deleted the pennies art I made. The pennies had been removed long time ago. I just have the picture. I just hot glue on the plate and cup. Thank you for letting us know.
