Countertop tiled with pennies: Though she is not a professional tile contractor, San Antonio blogger Ashley from Domestic Imperfection tiled her countertop with pennies. Question: Is this a good use of money? All those pennies add up to less than it would have cost her to install a granite slab countertop. Ashley reports that her epoxy-covered penny countertop is very watertight (she even dries her dishes on it).
Butler pantry counter made from upcycled old dresser: If you need a counter area right away for a small space, consider upcycling an old dresser. Gypsy Barn, a furniture upcycler in Ontario, has built quite a few coffee stations from old dressers. The old dresser becomes a mini-kitchen island or cabinet with counter.
