DIY Concrete Furniture

Why not take some inspiration from the web and start a new project (or hire a contractor) to make some wonderful concrete furniture for your outdoor space? There are some wonderful examples around the web of beautiful looking furniture pieces made from concrete. Even our retail space at the Hot Pot Paint and Hardware store here in Vereeniging is cured concrete, and we have had lots of great comments about it over the years since we opened our extended building.

Take a look below at the Concrete Coffee Table Project from YouTube, and just search out more by typing “concrete furniture” into a YouTube search.

We think that concrete gets a bad rap sometimes, as it can really look impressive and give you something solid to last for years to come, yet still be practical as a furniture piece. Next time you want to do something different, be sure to check out concrete furniture ideas.
