Her eye-catching design was achieved by using different-colored one-cent coins and alternating between heads and tails

She said: “I started by measuring the area and finding the centre. Drew an axis to follow along.

“I started by glueing one diamond shape in the center. I let it dry so I could push the next pennies against the center without the whole thing sliding.

“Didn’t really have a design in mind. Just started with the diamonds, liked how it looked and kept going.”swns_penny_floor_09When she got to the edges of the room she used a wave pattern to border the central diamond formation.

Tonya said she tried a number of different ideas before finalising her decision and gluing the coins in place.swns_penny_floor_02She added: “It took a few months. But I took many sanity breaks and had to wait for stuff that I ordered a few times.

“If I had just sat there and done it and had all the right things at the beginning then a week and a half would have probably done it.”
