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 :)...
"I used Weldbond Glue to adhere each penny, individually, to my floor. ALL wax was removed from the floor before I started. To be just a little crazy, I made each penny heads up & facing the same direction. Here and there, I would throw in a dime.... and when I found a cool penny (like a wheat penny), I put them tails up. It gave everyone something to look for. As I finished a section, I grouted them. I used black, sanded grout. Kept dirt from finding it's way into the cracks & looks finished."
