After seeing a concrete dining table at Restoration Hardware, April from Uncookie Cutter decided to create her own knock-off for way cheaper.
And when I saw concrete, I am not talking about a faux painting technique to mimic the look of concrete.
No, we are talking about a legitimate 500 lb. concrete tabletop! April says she had never worked with concrete before and is convinced anyone can do it with a little time and work.
And if you are wondering about the beautiful wood x-base supporting that concrete top, April built it using modified plans from Ana White.
I am seriously blown away by April’s DIY skills on this bad boy!
April was inspired by the Concrete Rectangular Dining Table from Restoration Hardware.

This table is GORGEOUS. While I'm skeptical that my floor could hold a 500 lb. table, I'd love something like this in my home. April may believe that "anyone can do it," but I'm not sure I have the skill or arm strength the work with such a tough material. Maybe that's why I like it so much--because I know it's so far out of my skill range. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Cal, Thank you so much for reading. You could always try out a smaller project first with the concrete to get a feel for working with it. How about this little bistro table? https://knockoffdecor.com/round-bistro-table-with-concrete-top/
