Dream DIY idea for 2012 — Concrete Counter Top!

I have an old house (built in 1888) and have been dreaming of moving my kitchen into a different room and then turning my old kitchen into a laundry/craft room.  Since my dream plans have me putting in a new kitchen, I am looking for ideas that can keep costs down.  Well, I ran across such an awesome idea!  Look!!

These are concrete countertops!!!!  OMG, they are beautiful and would be much cheaper than granite or ceramic tile!  And the site I found this on even has a tutorial.  Here’s the link!

    I like how it came out! Using cement to make a countertop for your kitchen is a good idea if you want to go frugal. The good thing about this is that you used a rebar to strengthen the structure of the countertop – I mean, it may have been going a bit overboard, but there’s no harm in going the extra mile to get things done perfectly, right?

    It seems like concrete countertops are famous nowadays! Even my wife has been suggesting that we get one too. By the way, did you make that countertop or this is just a picture of your ideal countertop?
