My husband, Jan, has a recent obsession with concrete. He's begun doing some artful things with it....we now have a gorgeous new coffee table, which he made with Australian walnut and brown-colored cement. I love all the little pits and natural look of it.
His latest piece of our new bathroom countertop. We purchased an old 1960's cocktail cart and he made this top out of stained concrete for it. He has sealed it and it shines to a gloss, still retaining its cement character. The bathroom is almost done now -- just need to place those tiles as a backsplash, and we've created a new look for it for very little.
