Got a piece of furniture with a cheap, melamine top? Use it to upgrade your home with a sturdy and modern DIY piece of furniture.
When working with cement-based products, always wear eye protection and waterproof gloves.
Screw the vinyl trim onto the edge of the melamine top of the existing stool, and tape the gap(s) using duct tape to close any holes or cracks.
Support the vinyl base trim with two large zip ties, making a band to surround the mold, and seal the inside edges with generic silicone caulk to seal the mold.
Mix the concrete, according to the instructions on the bag, and pour the mix into the mold. Tap around the vinyl edge to release any air bubbles.
Let the concrete cure for at least 20 hours.
Remove the vinyl trim edge and take off the concrete top.
Unscrew the melamine top, remove it, then attach and screw on the concrete top using masonry anchors.
