Concrete is a great diy material. It might seem scary to some, but it's rather inexpensive and easy to get the hang of. This fun tutorial shows you how to make a concrete bench that's modern, sleek, and can be customized 6 ways to Sunday (pssst, that's a lot of ways)!
We stopped in at Instructables where user madmanmoe64 has been building modular outdoor furniture. Molds were lined with leaves (and other assorted items that you can read about in the full tutorial) and then filled to the tippy-top with readied concrete.
When everything was completed and dry, the molds were removed and each piece now locks together for a modern stacking style seating arrangement. If you're looking for something a little easier you could modify the style of mold to make the process go a little quicker, but either way you're sure to be the only neighbor on the block with these bad boys while everyone else sports their uniform Target chairs. Score! Want to see the full process? Read More: Modular Concrete Bench from Instructables. (Images: Instructables)
