#thePennyFloor: Covering A Floor in Pennies

On the PennyFloor website, designers @emilybelden and @RyanLange show you how they've taken the humble penny and turned it into a warm and welcoming tile for their bedroom. An insane amount of work, but the finished effects are worth it.

Pennies: a couch-cushion's worst nightmare. The clanking noise in the drier. The difference between a dollar in change or 99 measly cents. After deciding that pennies were in fact the bane of our existence, we glued any and all right to the floor of our 380 square foot bedroom. Who knew their final resting place would be our new tile? Several thousand pennies (all heads up), over one hundred laborious hours, and a couple of clear coats later...there we had it: #thepennyfloor.
