The $3,400 floor (Read 1670 times)


The Monkey Games

    I worked with a guy that did that in his kitchen, but he only used nice shiny new pennies.  He painted the subfloor black, placed every penny heads up (and pointing in the same direction) then poured polyurethane over the entire floor and allowed it to self-level.  I never saw it in person, but the pictures were great.  He said it would pretty much glow when the morning sun hit it just right.

     

    I wouldn't have the patience to do it, but I've kept it in mind for a much smaller surface like a bartop or coffee table.

    May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

      That is nice, if pricey.  I didn't see a photo of the finished floor, though.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

          I had a friend who used this method for their college house bar with bottle caps.

              That store is just a few miles from my house.  Cool stuff! 

              So bittersweet,
              This tragedy
              Won't ask for absolution;
              This melody,
              Inside of me,
              Still searches for solution.
              A twist of faith,
              A change of heart
              Cures my infatuation.
              A broken heart, 
              Provides the spark
              For my determination.

                  Will do.  Hopefully I won't drop too much $$ while there.

                    This is definitely cool, but I don't think we can wear it.  Wink

                      Not nearly as cool as the $30,000 floor...

                        Now I know where I could fit my deep freeze.  I should just install in the crawlspace flush with my kitchen floor.  BRILLIANT!

                        Actually, I've always wanted to do a root cellar that way.

                          If I ever get a wine cellar, it will be when we build a storm shelter under a screened porch out back accessed via a trap door in the floor.  I will probably not bother with the spiral stairs though.
