DIY Penny and Epoxy Kitchen Countertop
By domesticashley on June 23, 2014
We came to the conclusion that we couldn't have the pennies wrap around the edge. It was a very sad moment. Not quite as sad, though, as the moment I realized that I had to pry all my carefully glued pennies off, one by one.
So after about a week of working on it, we were back to an empty black countertop. We brainstormed about what kind of edge to use and decided on copper flashing (to keep it copper/modern on the sides.) Then I went online to buy some, and saw that it costs about $1,000 a foot. Okay, so it's not quite that much, but you get the gist ... it was too rich for our blood. So we fell back on ol' reliable: cheap rustic cedar.
