What to do with all those pennies

Now that Canada is phasing out the penny, it's got me thinking of what to do with all that loose change. I did a post awhile back about a stunning penny countertop I found on Apartment Therapy, but how about a penny-tiled floor? It might just be the perfect solution for tiling our basement bathroom - although laying it out could be a tad tedious.

The Standard Hotel in NYC laid out a ton of copper currency in their restaurant recently...

Now that would be a huge undertaking best kept to a professional....if there is such a thing as a professional penny tiler.

If we hadn't already purchased a shower base, I could have been convinced to tile the shower floor. I love the sparkly shine of this bathroom - from the pennies to the damask tile.
