    DIY mosaic tile tray. Just the thing I was looking for to redo my trays!

    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.

    So much work. But maybe in the kitchen/ bathroom- to match copper fittings?

    NICKEL tile floor... similar to the penny tiled floor, but toned down oh so much!

    We just installed the pennies (we had glued to the mosaic tile mesh backing) directly over the existing ceramic tile in the vestibule (foyer/entryway) with regular thin set. We then grouted it with laticrete epoxy grout in chocolate truffle. It was really very easy and i love the way it came out.. most people that first see it don't realize that it's pennies. It took 3,889 pennies (it's about 3'-8" x 5'-8")...so $38.89 for app. 24 sf of tile is not bad at all.
