I’ve been seeing lots of concrete projects around lately. While I haven’t decided yet if I love it for *my* home or not, I do know that I love how creative people are getting with using the rough material in unlikely projects in their homes and gardens. If you love the industrial look, concrete fits perfectly with the rough metal, pipes, and chains that are really popular for the grungy/factory look right now. And, it is inexpensive and fairly easy to work with, so even if you have to try a project twice, you’re still not hurting your wallet much. A DIYers dream, right?
What do you think — love the concrete look or prefer something more classic? Either way, check out the ingenuity of these ten home projects and five craft ideas I’ve rounded up for you! And then come browse and join the party — love to see what you’ve been up to!
