Concrete & Cinder Block Projects on Hometalk

My love for all things related to home and garden has been revitalized by Hometalk – the online resource where you can ask questions about a project you’re working on and get advice, tips, and tricks, or just search all the wonderful ideas people share from furniture to fresh tomatoes and clip them all to one handy place.

Believe me, you will be inspired!

One of the subject near and dear to my heart, is recycling the overlooked materials we have around us, especially concrete and cinder block.  This simple building material can be put to use in a variety of ways, which led me to curate a board for Hometalk.  Check out these clips that will give you what you need to get the ideas flowing, and send you on a mad hunt for a stash!

    I have been wanting to build a fire pit for my backyard. I love the way you used cinder block for the pit! It gives it sort of a rustic look. I also like the red blocks you used as well, rather than the normal grey I see. It adds more to the look in my opinion!
