album covers "tiled" on a concrete floor? is it possible?

hello. i have recently purchased a home, it is a tri-level, and my wife and i are converting the lower level of the home into a bar area.

i pulled up the carpet, and it is smooth concrete beneath.
the look i am hoping to achieve is that of the floor completely tiled in old album covers. i am a diy'er, but don't have much experience in this particular field.

what i am thinking of doing is simply etching/cleaning the concrete floor, and then simply gluing the album covers (all the same thickness) to the concrete, and then covering it with an epoxy.

what i'm unsure of is how well the epoxy will hold up on a floor through the years, and also if the epoxy will adhere well to the album covers.

if anyone has ever heard of this, or has any input, or any other easier/cheaper/or more durable ideas, please, chime in!

The floor would also need to be sealed so that moisturecould not effect the album covers

Anything smooth enough to see thru I think would be a hazard when wet
Better idea for a bar top/tables I think
