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
As if this ambitious penny project wasn’t impressive enough already, this clever designer created a gorgeous zig-zag pattern to add an even more exciting look. We can’t imagine how long that must have taken.
4. Penny Table
Inspired by the classic penny floor, this creative person decided to take it to the next level — literally — and design a penny table.
5. Penny Bar Top
This penny bar top is perfect for anyone who’s ready to put their two cents in while enjoying a nice glass of wine during a night in with friends.
6. Penny Desk
We’re sure this hardworking person has a “penny for a thought” every time he or she sits down at this desk.
