In recent years the low-cost decoration has become more prominent, firstly because of the simple, and more than understandable, purpose of save moneybut that is not the only reason why the low-cost furniture are invading homes, as it turns out that the artisanal or “homemade” has become a trend lately.

Cement blocks for decoration
This is a resource that we recently discussed in an article where we offered quite a few ideas for decorate with cement blocks.

But they are also very interesting for making tables, desks and even, why not, a chest of drawers for the bedroom (of course, for this type of furniture you need to have certain knowledge or buy them made).
