Man Tiles Kitchen Floor With 27,000 Pennies

November 13, 2017


This is a video of Matt Giles tiling his kitchen floor with 27,000 (although I only counted 26,672) British pennies. That's £270 worth, or cheaper than you it would probably cost to buy actual tile or hardwood. Plus if you fall on hard times you can always take a sledgehammer to the floor and realize just how impossible it is to separate pennies from epoxy.

Keep going for the video but if you're interested in doing something similar Matt posted a complete tutorial HERE.

Thanks again to Luc, who plans on tiling his floor with real gold doubloons because he's a rich pirate.

    Why do people do this with .01 coins? They do realize that they are actually worth something and that you can actually buy things with them? A few hundred dollars, euros, pounds, whatever isn't something to just tape to the floor and walk around on top of. Makes no sense to be so wasteful.

    "sorry sir but your last mortgage payment was £270 short, you've got one hour to empty your belongings "

    I did the floor in my wine cellar. All the pennies are heads up and facing the same way... except 1 is tails up. I know where the tails penny is and I have a hard time finding it.

    Nice, but if this was my kitchen I could guarantee you that the surface would cure with at least half a dozen stuck bugs, a few suffocated spiders, random hairs, fluff, a fine coating of dust and probably a hapless delivery man. All encased in my floor forever.

    A friend of mine spent a month doing this to a building's basement downtown probably 6x that size, still there today. One of the few things on this earth to remember him by.
    RIP Ted.

    And people complain about cold tiles on winter mornings.

    Hope you have thick socks...

  • It's not $270, it's £270. So that would be $354, or there abouts.

    Probably about £2700 worth of resin on top of the pennies though. Or are they pents? I know nothing.

  • Pennies or pence.
    Or 'p's.

    Property was instantly devalued by much more than $270.

    What happens if you accidentally drop a penny on the floor?

    British people drink Coors Light?

  • Salvare000

    We try not to, He was probably a few pennies short when he went to buy beer that day.

  • TyDurd

    I wonder if they can get a WiFi or cell signal in the basement.

    UK homes generally don't have basements, sucks to be us.

  • Ollie Williams

    As someone who owns a house with a below-ground level, you don't want a basement.
