Bedside Table Concrete Top

Here's a quick update.
Because I am inpatient, and a few other because's....I have a big a$$ crack on the corner of my pour.  Luckily for me, this crack will be covered from the side of the end table.

The pour

The crack and the chipping from my impatience.  Just couldn't leave it in the mold like I should have.

Ready for the grinding.

I put a Mountain Ash leaf in my concrete.

No it's not big bird....It's me in hubby's grinding gear.  This grind was all mine.  He got the title of "Waterboy" for this  project.

Now to let it dry.  

That darn crack.  Well at least it didn't break apart during the grinding process.  No worries though.  I will fill it with a two part epoxy, seal it, and call it a bedside table top!

  1. Wow, I'm impressed! I really like that you added the leaf pattern -- very cool!

  2. Oh fun. I love projects like these and cracked or not, your coffee table top is great.

  3. Oh you are such a genius putting that leaf imprint in! I'm so doing that too! I'm looking forward to seeing it all finished! Love the big bird outfit girl!

  4. It's looking awesome! You had a great vision for this piece and I'm looking forward to seeing t all finished.

  5. I like the imprint. This is great!

  6. I love the leaf idea. I don't have a grind, but that reminds me when I had to cut marble tiles with a wet saw, I wish I have thought of using one of those suits!

  7. This is such a cool idea. I just bought a gorgeous Concrete Table for my patio at Mecox. It has such a great look and is so durable. It was the perfect solution for my home and there were so many options there.


Cheers to great words!
