DIY Penny Floor Update…it’s been a while!

It’s been a while since I’ve published anything about our penny floor project in our basement…quite simply, that’s because it’s been a while since we’ve worked on it! We got diverted with other projects, including an investment home that we purchased (that we installed a small penny floor in) …and my husband wound up crewing a sailboat down under for about a month…I can come up with more excuses reasons why the floor has not progressed…you get the idea.

DIY Sea Shell and Sea Glass Sconce

Just for fun, I decided to take a plain sconce and glue sea shells and glass that we’ve collected to it. My husband and I collected a majority of the sea shells from beaches along West Seattle.2016-01-20 22.04.43

DIY Sea Glass Mirror – Part 2

I must admit, my sea glass mirror has been hanging in the bathroom for a while now…I just haven’t had the time to write this post to share my results. In my last post, I had a base of flat glass glued along the border of the mirror.

The next step was to glue larger pieces of sea glass layered on top of the flat glass. Before actually gluing the glass, I selected the pieces and set them where I thought I’d like them to be, rearranging them as needed. [Read more…]

DIY Sea Glass Mirror

I guess I’m becoming very crafty… I wanted a sea glass mirror for one of our bathrooms. When I checked online, I was a little surprised at the cost so I decided to make my own. My husband happened to have a mirror of the exact size that I wanted for the bathroom that he was hoarding storing from a previous home. It’s an oval mirror with a beveled edge.

DIY Penny Floor: Week Two

We are on the second week of our penny project. I am now referring to that ginormous 10 x 13 foot room as the pennytentiary. I must admit, I love seeing how it’s evolving and I will be happy beyond words when this project is DONE! πŸ™‚

Since my last post about the penny floor, we finished gluing the compass.

DIY Project: Our Penny Floor

Now that my husband and I are officially “empty nesters”, we are beginning to have fun redecorating some of our extra bedrooms. My hubby has decided to convert one of the rooms into a man cave. The carpet needed replacing and the room is in a basement. We thought a “penny floor” would work well.

There are several web pages from fellow Do-It-Yourself folks who have happily installed floors made of coins… I thought it would be fun to share our progress with this project on some weekend post.2015-11-02 19.16.18
