DIY concrete countertops


I have been researching for a while now on concrete counters and intend to do them myself. I have made about a dozen samples of different colors and have finally chosen one that i like. I will post pics if anyone is interested. I was wondering if anyone here has attempted these types of countertop and would like to here of there experiences. good and bad. Was it easier/harder than anticipated? any thing that were not accounted for or you would have done differently? What was your mix?

DIY concrete countertops


I've never done it but very interested. Pleas do post pics. I think your approach of experimenting with samples is a good idea.
