10 Awesome DIYs Using Cement

As it gets warmer outside, there’s a few DIY’s I’ve been wanting to try that seem to be more of an outside exercise due to the eminent mess.  Unless you have a studio that’s equipped for big messes, these kind of projects are best to do outdoors.  Lots of fun, but also chances for lots of mess.
