Cheaper than tile

For what we paid to redo our floors, that doesn't sound too bad, cost-wise. Bit cold in winter, I'd suspect.

well, the wifey wants to change the decor in the bathroom ......

'Amazingly enough, we found out it's a lot cheaper to just glue money to your floor than actually buy tile,' Angst told WTAE in Pittsburgh. 'It's about three dollars a square foot.'

I glue pennies to the ground at WalMart.

I don't call myself an artist.
 
2012-11-05 08:50:39 PM
I wish someone would allow me to be the artist I am.

Money is the key.

Fund Indubitably.

There is no fund I know of in existence.

*sigh*

And longer lasting, and if you break a tile, you have to hunt for a matching one. If you pop a penny off the floor, well the repair part is in your left pocket.

Although I can't understand why they wouldn't find a way to make them all shiny before they glued them down....

Not really. English lacks a neuter gender, and current accepted grammar rules specify the use of the masculine when gender is undetermined, ambiguous, or plural.

It should be said that the floor will be quite the conductor of electricity and will need to be sealed.

Did you not read that part, or do you see buying tile as a waste of money as well?

Saw it on DIY network over a year ago.

Still pretty cool though.

If you go around gluing people's penises to the floor I'll bet you don't have many friends left.

That's what I was thinking. If the floor was resin-coated after the pennies were stuck down then it would probably look pretty cool and as one piece, would be very easy to clean. No grout to get dirty, no wood to absorb spilled liquids.

This is wrong on SO many levels.

Look up.

So did they have to snip/cut each penny to some kind of hexagon or octagon shape to get them to fit right? Cause if not, that's going to be a pretty nasty-looking floor in short order as grime gets into the gaps between coins.
 
2012-11-05 09:04:24 PM
So now the floor is a big metal plate good for electrocuting people if it ever gets energized. I hope they grounded it.
