Penny Wall Stove Backsplash


When I bought my house there was one of those old yucky ovens from the 70's with the high top. I replaced it and now there was just wall behind my stove. So I decided to do something that I, personally, could put up myself. A penny wall! I cut the top and side pennies with a pair of Cutco shears but you could use any metal snips. The backing is clear sticky backing that holds light objects- pennies, small tiles, half marbles. Then I threw some grout overtop and wallah!

Here's my empty wall with jagged tile and just stares at me every time I cook.

Grabbed a few of these sticky wall mats from the Home Depot (tile and grout section).

So easy to cut and put up! Stays in place even with the stove being on constantly and heat/cold.

Start stickin' those pennies! Don't worry about pattern, they all look the same in the end. Unless you want to make a a pattern out of shiny and dark pennies. In my case, I just wanted pennies!
Once all the

Once all the pennies are up I chose this color grout. Very very easy to work with. Just open the tub and slap it on. I used Cutco shears to cut the pennies on the edge, any metal shears will work. Don't tell the government I cut their pennies! Haha

Cover the pennies completely with grout

Take a cheap large sponge, dollar store or home spot. Wet the sponge with water and go over the entire surface until all your pennies are showing and the grout is only between the pennies

Now take some pics and enjoy!

The tile is still there... one day I'll hack it off, but for now it's barely noticeable because all you see is pennies. It brings brightness to the kitchen and it's nice to have a different backsplash in a different part of the kitchen. The compliments I get when new people come over are incredible!

    How do you clean this back splash?

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 12, 2017

      I just use water on a sponge... nothing really gets up that far to have to scrub

    • Tammy White

      Any tile or mosaic project can be protected with a coat of grout protector sold at home stores if you are afraid of the grease issue

    What glue to do pennies and how to prepare old backsplash

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 13, 2017

      You'll have to get yourself the mat that I posted a picture of. Not expensive, will stick to virtually anything really.

    Could you use pennies to do a countertop?

    • Ira
      on Feb 15, 2017

      I've seen pennies used as a flooring, so why not use them on the countertop as well.

  • Karen DiCataldo

    Why cut the penneys?

    • Pat Nalley Moore
      on Feb 15, 2017

      When you get to the end of row and no room for a whole penny you have to cut to make it fit...

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 15, 2017

      Edging. A whole penny won't fit where a quarter or a fingernail clipping size would fit. So I cut them to the right size for each area of the edge of the area

  • Queenbee

    Was the grout sanded or unsanded?

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 15, 2017

      I did not sand at all

      Looks fantastic! I've also seen people put pennies on there floor!

    What was the measurements for the space of your project and how many pennies did you use to complete your project?

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 15, 2017

      I believe it was like 10-15 bucks in pennies and it's only the width of a stove, height from stove to ceiling. I believe I used 8 strips of the simple mat

  • Gwendolyn Sue Poliszczuk
    on Feb 15, 2017

    Did you use anything special to clean the pennies first? Someone told me I could just soak them in some coca cola and that would do the trick. Just wondering what you did.

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 15, 2017

      I filled up a bowl with apple cider vinegar and baking soda. It fizzes up pretty high to use a big bowl! The fizzing helps remove particles. Let it sit and then take a brush and your hands, shove em in the bucket and light just scrub away.

    • Eliza Spear
      on Feb 16, 2017

      Lemon juice and salt will clean them. We did that all the time as kids

  • Sandra Meador
    on Feb 15, 2017

    Have the pennies been up long enough to tarnish or have you sealed them in some way? I have a hard enough time with copper kettles, forget an entire wall! I do like it though. Great idea!

    • Trudy
      on Feb 15, 2017

      I wonder this too, will they eventually all be brown? Right now it is very cool!

    • Sandra Meador
      on Feb 16, 2017

      I did some research. They will turn green, but you can seal them with marine urethane and they will not turn. Good luck!

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 16, 2017

      So far it's been 3 years and they still look on point. Barely even dirty. I cook 4 times a day on my stove too, parties, events, you name it. If they turn into zombies I will just rip it down and do something else fun! You should see me with tattoos, I wish I could laser them off and put new stuff! Haha. I'm always willing to try something else or something new :-)

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 16, 2017

      And the penny is no longer copper, so the chance of them turning is quite rare. Thank goodness!

      I love it! So original. What about using nickels for a vanity backsplash in the bathroom?

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Mar 20, 2017

      I don't have the means in my bathroom but I LOVE that idea for the shower when we re-do it. Not sure if nickels are allowed to be cut but in a big space like that they probably don't need to be. Cutting nickels would be tough.

  • Queenbee
    on Feb 16, 2017

    My question was if the grout was sanded or unsanded. Grout comes both ways and they both leave a different finish. I was not asking if u physically sanded the grout once it was applied and dried!

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 16, 2017

      You'll have to look up the grout I pictured just to be positive but all I did was sponge the excess off the pennies. As far as how it's labeled, I have no clue haha sorry. But I did put up the picture, might have it on the label :-)

    • Stephanie Burns Short
      on Feb 17, 2017

      I've used that grout before. It's sanded.

    • Sarah Walker

      Sanded grout is only bad if you h a vr high gloss tile or glass because it c as n scratch, otherwise it's OK.

    Why did you have to cut the pennies

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 16, 2017

      In order to fit the pennies closer to the edge of the wall I had to cut them, some in quarters, some in half. I used a pair of Cutco kitchen shears to cut them.

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 16, 2017

      And because I didn't want a straight line look, I wanted more of a scattered look, I decided this way was best as opposed to lining them up first.

      What a great idea. This looks like glass backsplash tile. I'm presently having a kitchen remodel; it's costing me a fortune. The best part of your idea, is it really works, what an ingenious idea!! How many rolls of pennies are used? I don't know if I would have the patience.. How long did this project take to do? Beautiful job..,

    • Veronica Heaney
      on Feb 22, 2017

      It takes roughly 256 pennies to cover 1 sq. foot. That means the cost would be $2.56 / sq. ft. Not too bad since I've seen tiles that cost much more.

    • Patti
      on Feb 24, 2017

      Absolutely LOVE the penny idea for walls, floors, tables, etc. ! However, having experienced Z Brick, ceramic tile, etc. REMOVAL, I personally would apply the pennies/fake brick et al to a separate board and then mount the board. I've had to replace too many walls because it's impossible to remove brick, stone, pennies, etc. without damaging the original wall.

    • Tees
      on Mar 1, 2017

      I so wish I could try this. But they took the penny out of circulation in Canada about 2 years ago :(

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Mar 20, 2017

      The original wall is sheetrock, damage to Sheetrock is the least of my worries. I also will never remove it, no reason to, as I did it myself and love it daily. If a new owner wants to remove it then they can have fun with their bad self!

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Mar 20, 2017

      As far as legality. The bank told me it's fine. I also live in New York and no one is arresting me for cutting a couple pennies, I can tell ya that right now haha!

    • Sandra Hahn
      on Mar 29, 2017

      Watch out for the penny police just gave me a ton of ideas like I can have you arrested and get the pennies for free for the defacing them. May I please have your address don't forget the ZIP Code so I can Google you and forward it onto the penny police

  • Dennie
    on Feb 17, 2017

    Ok, so I'm new to this. I would like to know why the 'simple mat' is needed? Is it for in case you want to take all of the pennies down at a later time? Or is it to level things out? Or, is it for heat, moisture? I love the wall with all those pennies on it. I think it is really cool.

    • Beryl
      on Feb 18, 2017

      I presume it is to stick the pennies to the wall

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Feb 18, 2017

      Both sides are sticky, very sticky. Enough to hold more than a penny, say a pretty glass bead or stones or nuts or buttons.

    • Jennifer Lynn

      That's the part I never kept track of. I believe it was only about 15 bucks.. 25-35 rolls I'd say

    • C
      on Jul 17, 2017

      I GUESSED IT RAN ABOUT $1.50 PER SQ FOOT. I FIGURED THAT EACH PENNY WAS APROX 1/2" AND IT WOULD TAKE 12 TO MAKE A FOOT. 12 X 12 = 144. FIGURE YOUR WALL SPACE (SQ FOOTAGE) AND THEN MULTIPLY THAT TIMES 1.44.
      IT'S NOT CHEAP BUT IS CHEAPER THAN TILE AND IS BEAUTIFUL AND WILL WEAR FOREVER.
  • Tami Mathis Prince
    on May 12, 2017

    I have bare sheetrock on the wall, do I have to buy a simple mat to apply the pennies? Thanks so much. Its beautiful and I've been wanting to try this for over a year! Yes I'm slow!
    • Jennifer Lynn
      on May 14, 2017

      Yea, it's so easy. The mat is sticky on both sides, stick it to the wall, stick whatever you want on it and then grout it!
  • Katrina
    on Jun 21, 2017

    Hi there. I have been looking to do this for months. Is there a pattern to follow? Also what is the sticky matt called? What do I look for at HD?
    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Jul 17, 2017

      I posted pictures of the mat. It's called simple mat. No pattern, just start sticking! You'll need to get heavy duty shears to cut the pennies once you reach the edge. Unless they fit without cutting.
    • Colleen Sturma Reynolds
      on Jul 17, 2017

      Lowe's has a similar product called Bondera...that's what I used...did the same thing behind my stove years ago. Looks great, especially since my kitchen has a lot of copper in it. I also had better luck cutting my pennies with side cutters. I also put some poly on top of it to seal it, as this is a backsplash that will get lots of splatters from the stove....

    • Joa4777969
      on Jul 17, 2017

      It does. Saw it on This Old House last year. It has a few minutes open time so you can reposition if needed. They say that it holds as tight as thin set.

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Jul 18, 2017

      I personally wouldn't use anything heavier/larger than a quarter or bottle cap unless it's on top of a table. But tile needs setting compound.
  • Kathy Hall
    on Jul 17, 2017

    Were you able to get the excess stuff off the ceiling and any area that you may have not wanted it on?
    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Jul 18, 2017

      I am unsure what you mean by excess stuff.. there is no mess really. The grout is simple and so is the mat. It's a very very clean process!
    • Kathy Hall
      on Jul 18, 2017

      I saw some stain on the ceiling and on the wall below the pennies on 1 of your pictures. And i was wondering if that came off pretty easy?
      I have never used grout before so i didn't know if it stains.
      Sorry i didn't make myself clear.

    • Annie Wiens Oper
      on Feb 9, 2018

      I think it would be great with dollar store flat marbles. Same principle. I would clear coat after for easy cleaning. Just my opinion. I might have to try this with the marbles, I need some color behind my stove. Thanks to both of you for inspiration!!!

    • Nancy Flemming
      on Feb 9, 2018

      You wouldn't need to clear coat the marbles they are glass and easily cleaned, but you should seal the grout.

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on May 24, 2018

      Hi Christine. Some of the pennies needed to be trimmed to fit along the top and side edges, otherwise you'd have a large gap with no penny. See pic for details. Hope this helps.

      The wall mats she used are Not removable, actually VERY sticky. You could do on a board and tack up so it can be moved and you only have to patch a couple of small holes.

  • Seanmom

    Is there a quick way to figure out how many pennies you need? How many did you use? Thanks.

    • Diane Lynn Raven
      on Nov 17, 2018

      Lay out enough pennies for 1 ft square. Count them. Then measure the area you plan to cover. Next multiply the amount of pennies used for a square foot x the the measurements and of what you are covering. This should give you an estimate very close to the pennies needed for the project you plan to do.


    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Nov 18, 2018

      I just went to the bank and got $15 worth an dollar went from there. You can always deposit or save the unused portion. But I did not measure ahead of time to see how many I needed. That would take too long! It’s one of those things, if you need more go to the bank, if you need less deposit the rest back into the bank.

  • Angie
    on Nov 17, 2018

    I love it! How do you think it would look if you mixed it up? Pennies and nickels? I’m afraid that would be too much of that color in my kitchen. Would the different sizes mess it up?

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Nov 19, 2018

      I’d say if you made a pattern with it then yea it would look great but just a mix up of pennies and nickels...? I would have to say I’m on the fence on that.

  • River
    on Nov 18, 2018

    That looks really nice! Does the wall get hot or give off more heat when the stove is on? Nice job, thank you for sharing!

    I am thinking of using simple mat to stick on mother of pearl mosaic tile, 1” x 1”. Saw some bad reviews about it saying that whatever they stuck to it would fall off. Have you had that problem?? Your backsplash looks great with the pennies!!! Way cool!!!

    • Jennifer Lynn
      on Nov 19, 2018

      As long as the tiles aren’t too heavy and you use some force to stick them on and then grout and seal, you won’t have a problem. I can’t even pick a penny off if I wanted to.

    • Lyn
      on Nov 19, 2018

      Jennifer Lynn, thank you for the feedback!! Makes me feel better about using it!! My tiles are very lightweight so don’t think a problem!! What did you use for sealer?

      I used grout and that’s it. I don’t make a mess this far up the wall. It stayed perfect for years before I moved. No mess! And wiped clean regardless. One time I dropped a can of tomato sauce and it splattered on the pennies. Came right off with a brush and soap, no stains.

    This is great! Does anyone know (or has anyone done this?), how about using the pennies on a counter top? Seems it would be good and even be able to tolerate heat...

      I think you would have to use epoxy to seal pennies for a countertop, but it would look fabulous!!

      I think it would work fine. I saw someone who had done their floor in them. You might want to seal or resin them them on a countertop

      If I were to do pennies on counter or a table I would use a plexiglass top. I wouldn’t cook or try to clean over just grout.

      Love this idea, but unfortunately they got rid of pennies in Canada and you can't even purchase them from a bank anymore.... so sad

    I’m kinda interested in the cupboards being black on the bottom and white on top. To me, that’s a pretty unusual feature. Does anyone else have 2 color cabinets and they can share?

      They are actually a very subtle deep blue on bottom.

      Go to www.houzz.com and search for tuxedo cabinets.

      That’s the new thing in painting kitchen cabinets. Not exactly my taste since my kitchen opens to the dining room and I have wall to wall ceiling to floor cabinets in there too which are a chocolate brown.

      I have a kitchen with very little natural light. My cabinets are painted espresso on the bottom and cream on the top. I love the lightness in the kitchen with the lighter cabinets on top. I have granite colored laminate countertops that ties everything together. I love the penny idea, so different.

      I always used a hand-held dish brush with dish soap and pat-dried with a towel

    Just to get an idea, how many pennies I would need, how many did you use, and what are the measurements of your wall? I’m wondering how it would look on the wall behind my claw foot bathtub. I need something, bad, and preferably CHEAP!! lol

      Unfortunately I do not live at this location anymore so I don’t know the exact measurements. I also didn’t measure how many pennies I would need, I just went to the bank and got 15 bucks worth of pennies and threw the rest in the vacation jar! Behind a tub would look awesome but you’d also need to epoxy and seal. I didn’t seal because it was above a stove, no need for waterproofing. You’ll need to waterproof for behind a tub. Home Depot will guide you to the best sealer for your project.

    I love the penny look. My sister in law used Pennies for a bar top with a clear epoxy to top it off.

      I’m considering doing a table in that exact form, thanks for the reminder! :)
