INGENIOUS CONCRETE LAMP – DIY CONCRETE LAMP

We love DIY with concrete. In very ingenious we made this  vase of glass and concrete  that may also interest you. And whenever we see a DIY lamp we can not resist sharing it. This is a great job of Ben Uyeda for Brit + Co where using as concrete molds plastic bottles joined by metal parts gets a fantastic result. You can see the process in the following images and visit the original source if you have any doubts.
