$13.74 Fireplace

It didn't start out to be a copper penny tiled fireplace. The wrong stone arrived as we were building the house. I looked at the space and decided that it was a blessing in disguise. Stone would have been too big of a material for the space allotted. I needed something small, perhaps round,with some texture. Pennies popped right into my brain! A mixture of old and new and dull and shiny would be perfect.

What could be cheaper? 

I spent about a few hours for three days jamming to my favorite tunes adhering the pennies to the backing with mastic. I used a sandless cinnamon grout. This was my first penny project which has lead to some other projects such as penny topped tables. I'll show you those on another day.
