That is awesome. I didn't know they sold molds to do that on your own. I will remember that one.

They also have it in different styles

PathMate Do-It-Yourself Belgian Style Stone Mold | Gardeners Edge

Can google Pathmate concrete mold for additionals as well as youtube video's.

You can find any of these molds on amazon or ebay but it's actually cheaper to buy the quickcrete name at Lowes/Home Depot.

I don't like doing it, but only because it pisses me off seeing how fast people who do it for a living can do it while having it look twice as good as mine and still need less sanding. LOL

The room took longer than expected though... All new everything, the electrical sucked because we broke up a few areas of the house so they were on their own circuits...

You do any kind of waterproofing membrane behind the tiles on the shower?

Yes behind the tile has plastic with all joints and holes taped. And with drywall it's all about your first coat after that it should be a breeze

Taking your time and doing it right is much better than rushing and having it look like crap

After buying stones in April I finally found the time to finish my little area that has been annoying the crap out of me for months...

Between the ACL surgery and studying for my certification I just couldn't find the time to finish.

Went from this.....


To this...



Its not 100% perfect and I still need to finish the fence, but considering it will have very little foot traffic considering it is good enough...

@LoveSpank or anyone else recommend a good self-leveling concrete I can mix myself? I'm putting down tile in my basement bathroom, but the slab is low in a few spots. Want it to be nice and level.
