Since the epoxy was so easy we decided it was worth another coat. So here we go… First we de-laminated the contertop to make it easy to get to the nails to remove it… except that there was NO WAY that sucker was coming off. Here it is sanded, you can see where it was still uneven after sanding. We just mixed according to instructions, poured, and spread with a putty knife. So what do you do when you have a ton of pennies to sort? We used Gorilla Glue. Here is where it gets messy.
This is one of those projects that if I was to do it again it would be super easy. We just mixed according to instructions, poured, and spread with a putty knife. I did some research online and saw that people recommended Tarn-X for easy penny shining so I picked some up at… Home Depot? Not because we started in random places like the picture above makes it seem.. Since the epoxy was so easy we decided it was worth another coat. I like that the color is similar to our counters in a totally not similar sort of way. Here is where it gets messy. Baaaaaad idea, the second coat was a disaster. It was a very sad moment. I mentioned in that post that I was open to suggestions and got the great idea to cover it in pennies and epoxy. Then it was time to epoxy. Next we had to figure out how we wanted our pennies. Now for whatever reason, the pennies kept not lining up. So here we go… First we de-laminated the contertop to make it easy to get to the nails to remove it… except that there was NO WAY that sucker was coming off. Oh wait…no, this was the only one. Offer free food of course! So after about a week of working on it, we were back to an empty black countertop. Then the gluing began. No way was I going to shine pennies one by one! We used Gorilla Glue. The box said you could get a satin finish by sanding and waxing so we decided to go for that and see if we could even things up. Turns out that installing this counter was one of the few things the builders of our house took the time to do right. I wanted the pennies to wrap around the countertop and look all modern and awesome. 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 what do you do when you have a ton of pennies to sort? So whats the best way? I wanted some color variation, but I also wanted all of them to be at least semi shiny.
