Project Idea: Concrete & Wood Side Table

Kara Paslay Designs

This intricate side table looks like it came from a high-end store, but it's actually a (surprisingly) simple DIY. Can you guess what the wooden pattern is?

A bath mat! And one that came from Target, even.

Despite the table being made from concrete and wood, the project requires no difficult concrete pouring, but rather concrete layering using ARDEX Feather Finish (a process similar to painting on the surface). The concrete is then sanded, sealed, and the bath mat glued on using construction adhesive. Since a hollow form is used for the table, it also won't weigh a ton.

Learn how to make this with Kara Paslay's step-by-step tutorial.
