Cement and concrete has been with us since Roman times and the Brutalist current really put the raw concrete wall on the spot. But only recently concrete objects like furniture design, lamps, flower pots, candle holders and other similar decorations have taken off and have secured a place in the contemporary interior design lines. Clean, sharp lines, bold shapes or just simple ones reflect the object itself, not covering it into an appealing wrap. Its textured, rough materiality is the one that empowers the product and gives it an attractive appeal. And while laying a concrete wall is a difficult job, suitable for professionals, small cute fun DIY cement projects are easy and approachable for every member of your family. The best part is that even if you ruin a piece or item or it does not come out quite the way you wanted, you can always make a new one quite easy and fast. And they may represent beautiful gifts as well, with some personal touches such as lace printing, fingerprinting or sculpting initials on the raw concrete. The possibilities are numerous and the results depend only on you and on the degree of roughness or finesse you want the texture to have. we hope the collection below will inspire you to try and take a chance at making these simple DIY cement projects.
