Remember my last post about DIY concrete stool? Since I have some left over concrete mix from the last project,
I'm wondering what to do next with the concrete? I found these interesting concrete projects all over the internet.
Concrete coffee table sounds like a good idea!

If you follow the link here , you can find that the video instruction is pretty easy to follow.
I used a smaller bucket size than what it was being used in the video,
so I simply used 2 kg of concrete mix with approximately 2 cups of water.
I found that once you pour the water into the concrete mix, it will become pretty dense and a little difficult to mix,
so I used a small gardening shovel to make sure everything is all mixed.
Oh, and I suggest making a small hole in the middle of the mound, and then add the water into the
hole (as if you were making bread) it will make mixing so much easier!
The fun part is that once you get the water and concrete ratio just right,
the texture will be very much gelato-like, so easy to sculpt (I hope it makes sense!) and shiny.
That’s it for now. I hope my tips are somewhat helpful!
massage and not to mention the beach!
I love to diffuse some essential oil blends while working or while relaxing at home. I found it helps
lift up my mood and spirit instantly. There are many ways to enjoy aromatherapy, I often use an
essential oil diffuser or a ceramic oil burner. They make my entire house smells wonderful, like a
quick trip to Thailand!
Here are some essential oil recipes I came up with.
1 drop of lemongrass essential oil
2 drops of lavender essential oil
1 drop of sandalwood essential oil
1 drop of peppermint essential oil
1 drop of lavender essential oil
I hope you enjoy this post and the recipes!
