Meet concrete, my friend who has long been an element of industrial design (which we know I love from this DIY table, and this organizer, and this shelf, etc., etc.,). But have you noticed concrete decor sneaking into the realms of modern design too? Concrete is such a unique and inexpensive material that it’s easy to see why people would gravitate to it. Originally people saw concrete decor as cold, but now we are loving the raw texture and recognizing concrete pieces for their unique beauty.
Why do we love concrete decor?
Inexpensive and unique. Take a look for yourself! Here are a few of my favourite current favourite concrete projects:
Concrete Soap Dish by Love Create Celebrate
Concrete Lamps by Homemade Modern
Tiered Concrete Planter by Anika’s DIY Life
Concrete Candle by Love Create Celebrate
Faux Concrete Rug by The Uncookie Cutter
Concrete Nightstand by Homemade Modern
Concrete Vases from Tin Cans by Love Create Celebrate
Decorative Concrete Signs by Paint Yourself a Smile
Tall Concrete Planters by Garden Therapy
Single Stem Vases by Love Create Celebrate

Mini Square Planters by Love Create Celebrate
If you’ve never done anything with concrete before, a bag costs less than $10 and I bag could probably make all of the above projects! Ok… except for the side table maybe, but I had to include a piece of furniture, because it’s stunning!
I hope you’re feeling inspired to pull out a bag of concrete! If you have any questions, please ask!
