7 Pretty Penny Projects That Make More Than Good Cents


We all know the saying: “Find a penny, pick it up. All day long, you’ll have good luck.” But instead of just carrying a penny around, why not try using it in a home decorating project?

From a penny floor to a penny backsplash, there are virtually endless ways to use pennies to decorate objects in your house. But it’s understandable why some people might be skeptical of penny projects at first. After all, looking at one penny by itself isn’t exactly inspirational. Not only does it only cost one cent, it also doesn’t have the prettiest design. Luckily, there are some super-creative people out there who found ways to make their penny projects look absolutely beautiful. As this video shows, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication.

As you can see, though, the results are really worth it after you catch a glimpse of the gorgeous copper penny floor. (In fact, you might even call the project priceless!)

So without further ado, here are some of the most amazing penny projects we’ve seen on the web lately. We’re willing to bet that the people who own them are feeling pretty darn lucky!

1. Penny Sink

It’s neat to know that there are exactly $12 inside this penny sink right now — literally! Considering how beautiful the sink is, we’re sure there are plenty of people who’d be willing to cough up a lot more money than that to buy it.

2. Penny Backsplash

It looks like we’ve got some competition going on in the penny projects world. One artist happened to see a penny sink online and offered up an image of a penny backsplash as an alternative. As for us, we think they’re both equally beautiful.

3. Penny Countertop
