DIY – Mosaic Floor Made with 7,500 Pennies by Kelly Graham

Here’s another epic DIY project you’ll admire and probably not have the patience to recreate. Encouraged after Kat Von D shared photos of her floor made out of 28,928 pennies, Kelly Graham of Camias Jewelry Designs shared hers. “I made my own penny floor in my foyer room,”

Kelly wrote in her viral post. Kelly used 7,500 pennies to cover 6 x 6 floor, back in 2015 and it still holds perfectly. “I sat down at this penny floor project, inspired to make one, but it had to be nothing anyone had seen before,” Kelly said in an interview with Bored Panda. “I did it as I went along and that’s why you’ll notice a few pattern changes during the process. It took me 3 weeks to complete so ample time for me to change my mind (and I did often). The process was me having no idea what I was doing so I YouTube some basic tutorials. The process of making the floor was sorting the pennies (old and new, and medium-sized ones), then I caulked each one on the back for a nice adhesion to the existing tile. After I put the last penny down, I waited a few days for the caulking to solidify and then I grouted. I waited a full week for the grout to harden and set and finally poured a resin coating on top. There is no penny odor, the floor isn’t slippery. It was a cathartic experience I needed in my life and maybe that’s why the design worked as it did. The inner muse spoke and I listened.”
