Concrete projects are becoming quite the rage right now and you might be itching to try one yourself.
I've tackled a few recently.
|Quick and easy concrete pavers.|
Some turned out great and some...not so much. Anyway I'm super geeked about the whole concrete thing. I mean, 1.99 a bag! Can't beat the price and it is super easy to mix. The worse part is lifting the darn bags. But, that's why I grew these 6' boys isn't it?
|My attempt at making a concrete garden globe. Ummm. yeah.|
Back to the drawing board on that one.
|Start with an average bucket of any kind.|
Probably should be clean but honestly
I don't usually worry about it.
|Use any old garden tool to mix.|
|Mix between each addition of water being careful to dig down deep|
to the bottom to get all the dry mix.
In the end you have to make sure to mix it all well but, depending on the look you're going for, you can have it a little on the dry side (which creates a rougher end product) or more wet (which creates a smoother end product).
Once you try it a time or two, you will be an old pro!
Go ahead, don't be afraid and give it a try.
