home: made [ concrete ]

home: made [ concrete ]

A material that has mixed views within the home is concrete. Some see it as ugly and lifeless, others see it as an interesting, even beautiful material with many uses.
We are much more the later so today we look at gorgeous accesories you can create in the home using concrete. There are loads of great tutorials and guides online showing how easy it is to make a concrete moulds for all types of projects.
A simple place to start is making tealight votives or a hanging plant stand. You pick the size and shape using plastic pots or old bottles and with a bag of cement mix away you go.
Check out sayyes.com and themerrythought.com.
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous try creating a concrete pendant lamp. Again using the same process with bottles, this time you will need the cable and light bulb attachments, and a little more patience, but you will have a stunning contemporary light after. Alternatively on a smaller scale try a table top lamp base. Head to brit.co and pastill.nu to be inspired.
