Lay a thin strip of "backsplash" tile in between the large tiles, instead of just using grout.

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.

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 :)...

The Mama Crow: Copper Penny Backsplash- love the tile just below the pennies too. Adhere pennies to a cloth mesh such as used for needlepoint. Adhere the mesh to the wall and grout the pennies.

Tiling with pennies. This will take you to a page with a lot of links to different projects - penny-covered countertops, floors, tables, etc. - with various methods of application. I like the lady who uses grout and poly for her kitchen floor - no epoxy/blow torch needed. I seriously want to do this in some way.

Glue copper pennies in place, fill in with black grout, seal with clear coat, and you have a cent-sational floor that will wow your guests.
