Finishing the basement #5 ~ the bathroom

By now you all know we are finishing our basement and it’s been very slow going because were doing almost all the work ourselves when we find the time here or there. Also, I want to make sure that I do it in a different style than the rest of my house, which makes me want to do something a little different in the bathroom.

Like I said in my last post, when I’m looking for inspiration I look no farther than¬†Pinterest.

I think this is a really neat idea. The folks over at Revolverindy covered their entire shop floor out of penny.

I don’t think Billy and I could get away with this on a large-scale without either strangling each other or going insane, but a small bathroom floor might just be doable.

I think you definitely want to glue each penny down as you go, and grout between the pennies just to keep dirt and debris out.

The total cost for the pennies is $1.44 a square foot, and then you’ll have the cost of the glue and grout but that would be minimal.

I think it would be just beautiful, and unusual. Which is just what I’m looking for.

I want to say thanks to Sharyl Williams for finding this great idea in the first place. Sharyl has a wonderful design blog called ‘the little brown house.’ Check it out if you’re looking for design inspiration, or you love looking at beautiful photos!

Thanks for coming by, and as always I love reading your comments!

    Caroline, what a great idea! I hope you will post pictures if you decide to do your room that way. Would love to see it!

    We just might do it Karin. Then again, I’m just as likely to decide I might end up in a straight jacket if I go that route. That a lot of pennies!
    Talk to you soon,
