How to Make a Concrete Umbrella Stand
This warmed-up, splashy storage project from our #DIYDARE challenge will have you smiling in the rain
Filled with a bunch of umbrellas, this stand keeps the entryway clutter-free. Concrete is one of the ultimate outdoor materials, but it can look cold. To soften the aesthetics of this umbrella stand, we formed it using distressed wood, then added a greenish-blue color to make it really pop in an entryway.
Could you do better? It's your turn to make use of any scraps you've got lying around, supplemented, of course, by one or three trips to the home center, to build a project of your own.
We're calling it the #DIYDARE. Check out our examples to get inspired, then snap a photo and of your project and tag it #DIYdare when you post it to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. (HASH)Tag, you're it.
