MOUNTAIN HOME, Idaho -- Randy Miller of Mountain Home is hard at work "changing" the look of his hometown.

Penny for your thoughts?

Make that thousands of pennies. Miller says he's actually used 14 gallons of them to build a 9' x 33' mural featuring symbols from his town. He's used caulk, simple tools, and volunteers to help. The stylized and shiny installation is currently taking up space by Kurly's Bar on Jackson and Main streets.

Miller sent KTVB a Facebook message with a simple explanation of why he's creating this unique piece of art.

"Im doing this all for free," Miller said. "Im not done yet, but I just want to show off a little. I've worked hard on this mural."
