Decorative Splash Block

DIY project with concrete and some leaves for making the imprints! Great alternative to ugly plastic downspout extensions.

Concrete Block Wood Bench. Nothing super special about this bench as it's all over Pinterest, but it was so simple to make we couldn't resist! We used solid blocks for the base that my building had available, Liquid Nails for the adhesive, 4x4x8 red cedar for the boards and 96-cent concrete blocks for the tops to hold the boards! Since the solid blocks were free, this project cost us about $75 with items on sale from Menards! Not sure if I'll add cushions or not yet...
