Penny Countertop

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 http://www.domesticimperfection.com/2012/05/...

    I did this to the top of a small step stool. Looks good. But it is the epoxy that I do not think I want to deal with on a countertop. AND got rid of a bunch of pennies!

    You did a great job, can hardly wait to start on the top of an old trunk we have hanging around.

    Another Idea: If you have a counter that is boring but you rent or don't want anything permanent - make a frame of 1"x3" and cut one end to match the height of the sides (as the end of the counter that touches the wall will bring the end higher).

    Gorgeous, I have a small piece like this that has a black back ground. I use mine in the kitchen to sit my stainless steel can open on. The three color combos: black, copper and stainless steel really pop together...

    Love the penny tile look. Depending on the lighting you can get all sorts of different color variations. Ive actually sold some to a few friends because I did the work and put the pennies on a mesh back and poly-clear coated the faces to save a whole

    Actually pennies are not considered legal tender so they are not protected under the US Code.

    A mosaic of natural patina! Mm-m-m... Canada recently discontinued the penny; I knew it was going to be a mistake not to hoard some!
