Our Concrete Countertops

157K Views
We bought our home 14 years ago and the counterparts were new but cheap material.
I have always wanted to have concrete counter tops made but they want so much money I started researching and decided I can make them myself. I decided to pour it i place so I put in re-bar and framed it right on top of our existing counter.

    Hi Kelli, yes, I did do the back splash. I used the same slate that we used on the floors. I just broke them with a hammer and used liquid nail to adhere them to the wall and under the bar. The next day I sealed them (because otherwise the slate would grab the grout and not come off) the third day I grouted it. Thanks for the complements girls, but believe me you can do it too!!

    Angelia, your kitchen countertops look pretty cool. . The work that you did looks somewhat alike to the plans that my son planned out. He created a layout of how his countertops should look like. http://www.lamfab.com.au/laminate-fabrication/laminate-benchtop-links
