Tiling a Room for Pennies...With Pennies

Cynthia Marcoux
Tulsa, OK

We ripped up 44 square feet of flooring near the guest bath to get at some plumbing, but couldn't find any Douglas fir to match, so we tiled that area with pennies instead. We had one of those big jars of pennies like everyone does, so that saved us buying tile. Problem was, we didn't have near enough, so I had to go buy about $75 worth of extra pennies.
