How to Cover a Countertop with Pennies

If you liked the tiled penny floor idea, then you'll love Michael's penny countertop. He says the project was quite easy and took approximately 6 to 8 hours to complete. He used about $77 in pennies, which, including his other supplies, came to about $7.50 a square foot. Cheaper than granite!

Complete instructions explaining how to tackle such a project yourself can be found over at Make. You can read more about the countertop at artifacturestudios.com.

Amazing.......My favorite color.  I raise my hat to you.  What a fabulous idea.

Astar--You know, I never even noticed all the other finishes! You're right. Not long ago I saw some bronze appliances at a local dealer. Wasn't sure about them, but with a penny countertop, they could be cool. Kind of steampunk-y, no?

The penny finish is really nice, but there are far too many finishes in that kitchen to be anywhere near tasteful.
