Our Concrete Countertops


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.

I put primer on the counter so the concrete would adhere and then added re~bar and wire mesh.
