The most innovative book arrangement: Cool DIY pipe book shelf.for the industrial looking living room.all parts can be bought at home depot, and they will even thread the pipe for you there to the length that you need it! Maybe for bedroom idea.
Penny Floor - don't know if I would have the patience for a whole floor. but a coffee or patio table would be nice! Also an easier way to do it is to put out the pennies then flatten then by, I don't know, maybe a broom or some thing.
