I wonder if spacers were used for the penny tile. Get it penny tile. They appear to be evenly spaced.

Highly unlikely - ceramic penny tiles that come in sheets are space about this much...it's really determined by the nature of putting round objects adjacent to each other.

Hi elene,

A reader over at NotCot suggests using mesh backing with adhesive on one side. You stick the pennies to the adhesive and lay it in grids, then grout. Here's the link:

Best of luck! If you plan on trying this DIY, we'd love to see pictures.

Dunno, but I don't think it's legal to use money like that!

Oh I saw this a few months ago. I was looking to do an island countertop like this. I read that it cost $2.50 a square in pennies plus other materials pretty cheap alternative considering the cost of copper these days. Oh but you should use pennies prior to 1982 for a higher copper content.

Great idea. Possibly use different coins for different colors. A reader over at NotCot suggests using mesh backing with adhesive on one side. You stick the pennies to the adhesive and lay it in grids, then grout. Here's the link: http://www.notcot.com/archives/2009/06/floor-of-pennie.php#comment-131786 Could make table top this way too.. or tray?
