Decorating by recycling it’s possible, and we really love it. This is not the first time we talk about this ideal resource for those who want skimp on the moneywithout losing style. In this article we want to share more ideas for decorating with cement blocks.
These concrete blocks may appear to have limited use, only for constructionbut it’s not. It is possible to do a lot of things with them, and the truth is that we must say that the results are more than interesting. Do you dare?
The best of supports
Cement blocks and their holes can be great for suspending benches. The perfect support, robust and stable, to create relaxation areas in your exteriors. The operation is simple. Look for wood strips or boards that can fit into the hole in the cement blocks. With these, you will manage to form a surface stable enough to place cushions and make a nice sofa outside.
Very green pyramids
The hole of the concrete blocks is really versatile. This is not the first time we have seen, for example, pots with this kind of material. However, we would like to highlight the possibility of creating large green pyramids. Alternate sizes on the blocks and place them in a nice pyramid, as vertical garden. Also, the good thing is that this material can be painted, so decorating your low-cost flowerpots can give that special touch that personalizes your exteriors.
Shelves for indoors and outdoors
If the blocks are capable of creating armchairs and benches, they will also serve us to get shelves. The operation is very similar, although on this occasion, instead of introducing the boards into the holes, we will place them on top of the concrete blocks, as we can see in the images. This way, we will obtain beautiful shelves that can be ideal to place outside, with pots full of flowers, or inside, as a library, for example, in a reading corner.
If we use the blocks as support points, we can cover them with wood. The result may be a little rustic, but it can be a great element for gardens and terracesHow about a great barbecue table to enjoy a good meal with friends and family? In addition, these blocks, individually, can also function as side tables. Depending on the format of our blocks (there are different sizes), we can create auxiliary tables that can be placed in any corner of the house, even creating a dynamic set with several blocks.
