A BATHROOM FLOOR TILED IN NICKELS

Bethanny Sundman also spotted this one, which raises the stakes a bit. -Editor

In March 2010, I came upon the ever-popular Penny Tile floor post on your site. At the time, we were in the process of renovating our 1950s rambler and I was unsuccessful in finding a contractor to complete a concrete overlay (thin-set concrete) design on our master bathroom floor. A standard flooring option just wasn’t what we were envisioning for this space…

A floor tiled with pennies was perfect…well, almost. We were building a very modern home in Seattle and the overall color theme was grey and white — copper just didn’t seem to integrate well into our design scheme. But nickels did! So, 13,650 nickels later — that's $682.50 — and 30 straight days of gluing the coins to mesh, we have a nickel-tiled master bathroom floor.
