Materials: KLACK tray, $4.77 in pennies, brown contact paper, sisal rope, Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive, hot glue, Xacto knife

Description: When I bought this KLACK, I thought the dimensions were great, but that the white dry-erase board base of the tray wasn't my style. So I gave it a coppery facelift!


1. Use an Xacto knife to cut a piece of brown contact paper the same size as the tray surface, and stick it on. (This step can be skipped if you want the white to show through the penny gaps)

2. Start horizontally gluing down rows of pennies with quick dry adhesive, lining them up as tightly and closely as possible.


3. The pennies won't fit exactly to the edge on both sides- you'll have a gap between the last row and the wood on one horizontal edge. You can fill in the gap by hot gluing two rows of sisal rope around the whole perimeter of the tray. (The rope will fill in the gap on one horizontal side, and go over the pennies on the other three sides)

4. Et Voila!
