According to The Stir: Instead of forking over thousands on a new floor, this couple decided to make a change with ... well ... change
Ryan Lange and Emily Belden have paved their entire 234-square-foot bedroom with pennies, which amounted to about $600 worth. It's a much cheaper option than cherry wood floors, that's for sure.
The project started when they wanted to renovate their bedroom and inspiration hit Ryan as he stared at a jar of pennies in their home.
"We'd been looking up options and were thinking about being green when I said we should just tile the floor in pennies,” he said in an interview.
Well, I have to say, that is certainly recycling at its best. Friends even got in on the cause, bringing over the coins they had lying around their own homes. The couple even found a couple of rare ones to plaster to the floor (like an Indian Head penny from 1873).
I’m not sure if this couple is uniquely artistic or completely crazy. Either way they come up with the most beautiful and original bedroom floor.
