On the man cave Jack Daniels soap dispenser where do you find pumps to fit that bottle?

Renee Romeo

Hi Donice,

Regular pumps from hair shampoo or conditioner from the store ususally fit that type of bottle, we’ve gotten lucky and just ran to the local grocery and found some larger pumps. Beauty supply stores generally sell large pump dispensers as they need them for salons.

Thanks,
Renee

That penny floor is certainly not inexpensive. With a penny taking up just under .5 square inches, a 10×10 ft room would have 14,400 square inches of space to cover with pennies. That means that it would require 28,800 pennies, or $288. Probably cheaper than some methods, but not “non-expensive” ($2.88/sqft just for the pennies).

Hi there! Great roundup! And thanks so much for featuring my license plate crate! But could you PLEASE replace the pictures you have with the ones in the post WITH the watermarks?

It’s really important to leave featured photos untouched so they can always be traced back to the owner.

I have copyright info right on my blog face that asks this very thing.

Please email me if you have any questions. Thank-you!

You omit any mention of “filler or sealer”. What do you suggest ? Are the pennies glued down ?
Does anyone have any experience with living with a “COPPER” floor ?
