My sister had added a concrete top to her coffee table, and I fell in love. I immediately thought of an old side table we had inherited from the previous home owner and knew it needed concrete...
Adding concrete to a table top isn't as hard as you would expect! This was done with no special tools!
This is the side table we had inherited from the previous homeowner.
I mixed a "feather light" concrete. It really doesn't take much!
I added a few layers at a time - check out my blog post for al the details.
Here's the piece after I added all the concrete layers.
Once the final layer was dry, I lightly sanded the surface.
Adding a sealer was my final step.
And the result was a more industrial look! (I also stripped the wood and added a darker stain. To see more, check out my blog post.)
