Tonya Tooners from Portland, Oregon took 13,000 coins, or three $50 bags worth, to create a stunning patterned floor in her house. After organizing them by color, she used ten bottles of Elmer’s glue, wood filler, and grout to keep things in place, while an epoxy layer gave it a shiny finish.

Aside from the pennies, Tooners used 10 bottles of Elmer’s glue, grout, wood filler, and ‘expensive epoxy’ to make her dream a reality,” reports My Modern Met.
