During a recent trip to our local Ace Hardware, we discovered they had mini bags of Quikrete mortar mix. Well, we had to buy it, cause you know, “everything in mini form” is totally cute!
Now, what to do with our little mini bag? While in Target’s home accessory aisle, we happened upon a marble and wood decor piece which gave both of us the same idea- at the same time. A concrete and wood door stop!
Once home we found a beautiful scrap of wood that would become the base and on another Ace trip we found the perfect hardware to use as a handle.
We started by building a concrete mold of Legos around the perimeter of the base wood. We laid the Legos out to determine the length, then removed the wood and finished building the mold.
This project is a great one to use what you have on hand. Any type concrete would work and you can showcase whatever wood you have as well as choosing a fun piece of metal hardware as a handle. Get creative!
The doorstop also makes a great weight to use in the garage. We end up using weights to help weight things down and to help hold building projects temporarily in place.
