Mirror! Mirror! On the Wall
A penny saved.. is a tile floor - I knew even before we bought our house that I wanted to put a penny tile floor in somewhere. As in real pennies. We had seen a floor like this at the Standard Grill in New York and thought it was really pretty and on a small scale wouldn't be hard to fabricate. So I saved a bunch of pennies, made a template, bought some mesh backing for mosaic tiles, glue that could hold metal and started making sheets of tile.
