August 7, 2023

Holliday Sand & Stone is committed to serving homeowners who take pride in creating unique spaces for their home. Although we often help address the exterior elements with our products, we know how important your interior spaces are as well. Below you’ll find some DIY concrete furniture projects ideas that are both practical and stylish. Not only will they bring a distinctive charm to your home, but these projects also offer a satisfying hands-on experience.

1. Concrete Coffee Table

Kickstart your DIY adventure with a minimalist yet stylish concrete coffee table. This project infuses elegance into your living space and serves as a perfect conversation starter. You’ll need to start with a mold for your tabletop – this can be any size or shape you desire, although a rectangular design often suits modern decors best. Use a smooth, high-grade concrete mix from Holliday Sand & Stone for a polished and professional-looking finish.

2. Concrete Bookends

Next, consider crafting a set of concrete bookends. Their industrial look adds character to your bookshelves while ensuring your favorite reads stay organized. You can use a small cardboard box or wood for the mold, depending on the desired shape. Remember to insert a smaller box or piece of wood into the mold before pouring in the concrete to create a hollow space for your books.

3. Concrete Planters

The third project on our list is concrete planters. These not only add a rustic touch to your indoor greenery but are also surprisingly easy to make. You’ll need two different sizes of containers to create the outer and inner mold for your planter. Once your concrete is dry, drill a small hole at the bottom for drainage, plant your favorite flora, and watch as your space transforms.

4. Concrete Stool

For those ready to take on a slightly larger project, a concrete stool makes an excellent choice. The key to this project is creating a sturdy concrete seat. You’ll need a bucket or large bowl as your mold. The legs can be made from treated wood or metal, depending on your preference, and attached to the concrete seat using strong adhesive or screws. This versatile piece of furniture can be used as a stool, side table, or plant stand.

5. Concrete Lamp

Finally, we suggest trying your hand at a concrete lamp. With some patience and the right tools, you can create a stunning industrial-style lamp that’s sure to be a showstopper. The base of the lamp can be made by using a simple mold, with a space left in the middle to accommodate the lamp wiring. Once your concrete base is fully cured, you can attach your lamp kit and choose a stylish lampshade that complements your interior design.

When you’re working with concrete, the key is remembering that safety comes first. Always wear gloves and protective eyewear, and work in a well-ventilated space. Additionally, patience is key — letting your concrete furniture pieces cure completely will result in stronger, more durable creations.

These DIY concrete furniture projects not only give your indoor space a unique look, but they also offer a sense of accomplishment as you create practical, beautiful pieces with your own two hands.
