Favorite Concrete DIYs

Do you call it concrete or cement? I didn’t know what to title this post until I looked up the difference between the two. Did you know that cement is actually an ingredient of concrete? You learn something new everyday.

I’ve only worked with concrete once before when I made this concrete photo background. I wanted something textured with more of an industrial feel. I love how it turned out, and it was fun and surprisingly easy to make. I want to make more projects using concrete and these projects I rounded up serve as the perfect inspiration.

DIY Concrete Photo Background

Concrete Photo BackgroundConcrete Photo BackgroundI’ve been blogging for about 3 years now but I’m always looking for ways to improve my photography. The same plain white, poster board background wasΒ starting to get a little old. Literally and figuratively. I had seen some of the concrete countertops other DIY bloggers have been posting. I love the polished industrial look but I doubt my mom would appreciate me pouring concrete on her counters, no matter how much HGTV I watch. I figured I could get similar results on a piece of wood that I could pull out whenever I wanted to take photos, but also store when not in use. A quick trip to the hardware store and a little help from Dad, and I have an awesome new photo background.
