Concrete Soap Dish

Love this DIY concrete soap dish! Such a quick and easy project for the bathroom. The perfect modern accessory!

Concrete used to be considered a cold, lifeless material. We didn’t see a lot of concrete products in home decor, but recently we are seeing it pop up again. My industrial-loving side really loves using raw materials and concrete is definitely one of them! When we renovated our Modern Master Bathroom, I really wanted the space to have a few industrial touches, and these concrete soap dishes were one of the ways I incorporated that idea.

I used my favourite, fast-setting Β concrete product to make them. Here’s everything you need:

Makers Mix
A Round Two-Part Mold
Vegetable Oil
Concrete Sealer

Start by coating the mold in vegetable oil. This will prevent the concrete piece from sticking to the plastic mold.

Next, mix your concrete according to the directions on the package.

I wanted the soap dish to be shallow on one side, and tall on the back side, so I poured the concrete mix into the mold, and then tipped the mold on its side. The flat part of the mold was now to the side, instead of directly underneath. Tap the mold on the table a few times to get any air bubbles out, and then let the dish set (about an hour).

The dish should come out of the mold easily. Then you can use your concrete sealer to waterproof the soap dish. I did a couple of coats to make sure that I got into all of the cracks and protected the piece well.

This project can be started and finished in an afternoon. It was the perfect addition to our bathroom!

  1. I love your ceramic soap dish, it looks beautiful. Just got all the supplies in the mail and ready to try. I read the directions on the Maker’s Mix but not sure how big a batch of mix to make? Did you use 1 or 2 cups or more of the Makers Mix? Thank you for sharing your creations!

    1. Oh! Thank you! I’d love to see it after you make it! I’m sure one cup would be enough, although I can’t remember how much I used. If you find you need more you could always add more mix and stir it well, as long as it’s only been a few minutes! If you have have extra, fill an old cream cheese dish and put a tealight in it to make a concrete candle :)
