I hit the snooze button three times this morning… two times more than I usually do. I think it was knowing that Mike has off today and that he’d be nestled in bed for a few more hours that made it so difficult to get up. Or because I have no winter clothes and dread having to run to the car in my pencil skirt as my legs turn into popsicles. Either way, this was not my morning. But that’s okay, because the weekend is right around the corner and I have a nice date planned with my couch and my snuggie — at least for Saturday morning, that is.
So, today I’m in need of a bit of Pinspiration. Remember that awesome coffee table project I was talking about a few weeks ago? The one that caused my fingers to be stuck together for days at a time after I’d come home and spend hours laboriously spray painting pennies and super gluing them to my table? Well… I got half-way finished when Mike accidentally put a huge, unfixable, gaping hole in the corner of the table. I guess you get what you pay for with IKEA.
So, after we tediously scraped off all the pennies from the broken table and replaced it with a shiny new one, I have about $5 worth of spray-painted pennies and need some inspiration for what to do with them! I’m not going to even try touching the table project again, as I feel that hole was a sign that maybe I should just let it mind its own business.
I’ve done some searching on Pinterest of course for more penny project ideas and have found a few that I like. Here’s what I’m considering:
So – which of these penny projects do you think has the potential to be a hundred dollar idea? Any other cool projects you’ve seen floating around? I’d love to see them.
Whatever I do with these 500 pennies, I need to figure it out…and quick. Because finding them strewn across my apartment, hiding in my shoes and now sitting in my shower thanks to my two little home wreckers won’t be cute for much longer.
Happy Pinning Everyone!
