Amazing DIY Concrete Countertops - Yes, YOU Can Make This Too!

This past month I took a course on how to make these AMAZING marbleized concrete countertops. The biggest things I learned is how easy it actually is to work with concrete and that there is an endless range of things one can make with the medium. I really love this marbling technique. It looks like a very expensive Italian marble, but is a fraction of the cost.
