8 Must-Try Concrete Projects

I’ve only worked with concrete once before, but after coming across the projects below, I want to run out to the hardware store and pick up a 10lb bag and get to work! I know that concrete may seem intimidating to work with, but I think when it comes down to it, it’s all about taking your time to prep for the project. Once you have your mold, all that’s really left to do is to mix and pour. Chances are, if you can make a cocktail, you can handle these 8 must-try concrete projects!

    I love d.i.y projects with concrete. It is so simple, the only thing i hate about is, is the patience you need because it has to dry :)

    I’ve made a few concrete projects and have been happy with how all of them turned out! It’s a great material to work with, and super budget friendly. I still have 90% of the bag I bought left…hmm, maybe I should tackle one of these ideas!
