After much deliberation, you have decided to build your concrete table. You have researched the various types of concrete available online and found out they come in many varieties, including various coloured concrete mixes. After much study, you decided on what type of concrete you will build your concrete table from.
Now that you have that sorted, the next primary concern is building the table and making your DIY concrete furniture project a success.
As a builder who has built hundreds of concrete tables, you will know precisely how difficult making the mould can be mostly, as you use low moisture cool concrete and low moisture plastic moulding to build your table. To make the mouldings, you will need to mix a certain amount of concrete cement powder in half a gallon of water. Mix this thoroughly and allow it to sit for an hour or so. The powder will then harden, and should be left with a thick white paste.
Now, that you have this, you will need to take an old plastic or glass cutting board and make sure it is completely flat and clean. Use it to make sure all the sides are smooth and flat. Now you want to smooth out any bubbles or holes in the concrete. By doing this, you will make sure the mould’s sides are smooth and even after you are ready to pour the concrete into the mould.
Next, you will need to attach the legs to their corresponding corners of the table. You will need to take out the bolts that attach the legs to the corners to do this. Use a ratchet or wire to tighten the nut and thread the two long pocket screws through the leg’s head and over the top of the concrete after that attach the leg’s bottom. Now you have a perfectly finished DIY concrete table!
You can easily use your newly-created concrete piece to build custom shelving, a small table, or even a large picnic table. It is essential to know how to build a wood plank correctly to look its best after building it. Start by making sure that the wood plank’s edges are smooth and rounded to be easier to work with when you finish and shape them.
The last step
The last step is to position the edges of the countertop in their correct positions. Use a level to make sure that they lie flat on the floor. You can then use wood glue to attach the edges to their corresponding countertops. Follow these same steps with the other DIY concrete table pieces until all the pieces are complete. Once you are done building the table, you will then be ready to enjoy it.
Potted plants are a great way to add colour to your concrete furniture and other outdoor areas. Remember that the soil and fertilizer needed to maintain those plants need to match those needed for the plants you choose. If you want to plant something permanent, then think about planting flowers or perennials that will grow for the long term. But if you want to plant something that you can move, such as a concrete bench, then consider purchasing one with a removable top, so that you can quickly move from the bench to a new location. A concrete bench made from recycled concrete can make a beautiful, colourful addition to your yard while also being environmentally friendly.
