They remodeled for pennies on the dollar …literally! Some people believe it’s only good luck to pick up a penny if heads is showing. A penny with the tails side up should be turned over for another person to find. You may hear people repeat a common rhyme to this effect: “Find a penny, pick it up. All day long, you’ll have good luck.”

Do you stop to pick up a penny? No matter how it lies there, most people will walk right over it never giving it a second glance. But, a penny will add up in a jar over time and you just may be wanting pennies to do a remodeling job such as these people did. Making a penny floor and bar was way cheaper than getting the wood and flooring from a store and best of all…they did it themselves saving on a contractor’s fee.
