Concrete veneer coffee table

379 views

I was sent some micro-cement from @concretelabuk to try out and wanted to see how a concrete coffee table would turn out! Glued a couple of pieces of plywood together with @gorillaglue for the table top and used a combination of half lap joints and butt joints for the legs.

Sam,

Did you like how the micro-cement worked? Would you recommend it? Do you think it would work for a concrete kitchen countertop? Can it be stained or painted?

It sounds like an interesting method of making a lighter weight concrete-appearing surface. We’d love to hear more about it.

Hi both,
I found the micro-cement very easy to use. The process involved sealing and priming the plywood sublayer and simply mixing up the microcement and spreading it over the top. The microcement can be sanded to give a smooth finish or left to give a natural concrete feel. Lots of people use it’s for concrete counter tops and it looks brilliant! There’s lots of examples over at @concretecarrot and @concretelabuk on Instagram

Sam,

Thanks for the additional details.
