want a penny floor, but the idea of sitting for over 8hrs painstakingly gluing pennies to the floor makes your heart sink? Well - you can, over time, glue pennies to square mesh, so on the day of flooring, you just have to glue/grout down the mesh, and then fill it with grout, which seems to me, a more reasonable undertaking :)

A penny saved.. is a tile floor - I knew even before we bought our house that I wanted to put a penny tile floor in somewhere.  As in real pennies.  We had seen a floor like this at the Standard Grill in New York and thought it was really pretty and on a small scale wouldn't be hard to fabricate.  So I saved a bunch of pennies, made a template, bought some mesh backing for mosaic tiles, glue that could hold metal and started making sheets of tile.
