    What to do with a bunch of concrete chunks

    Advertisements

    So we had a palate of 30 bags of concrete in teh driveway - when we built the fence and deck we had this much leftover.
    We were goign ot use it to build a walkway around the deck on teh ground but 10 of the bags on the bottom got wet because of a hole in the plastic tarp and now I have 10 rock hard 90lb chunks of concrete - quite a bit has been broken up into big chunks (maybe 10lbs each) or so - but I don't know what to do with it.

    I was thinking of stacking them in some way to form an improvised garden stonepile for flowers and vines to grow around and then painting them with concrete paint - but Would that look just too stupid?

    Might be nice- especially if I paint them. Now they're just a classic "grey"

    Well - I exhausted myself by relocating it all but the driveway is now clean of chunks and junk!
    I'll paint them tomorrow - I need to buy some paint - but I think it'll be cool as a boxed planter.
