Does your furniture need an upgrade? A worn-down tabletop, or your old chairs will get new life and an industrial look with Conteco’s flexible concrete series. You can easily paint or roll Conteco on any surface and give your piece of furniture a new and cool look. Read here for more information on how you can turn your furniture into concrete.

It is easy to upgrade your furniture with Conteco and bring the urban look into your home. Give an old table top new life by turning it into concrete, or transform your shelves with a beautiful concrete look. Think of using Conteco as you would use paint – the only limit is your imagination when it comes to the possibilities with Conteco.

Conteco is available in 6 gray nuances, which span from the classic ‘concrete color’ to a dark charcoal nuance. In addition, Conteco is available in a selection of colors that can be tinted with pigment for your needs. The structure of the concrete can be altered depending on how you apply the product – whether it is applied with a painting brush or a spatula.

The flexible concrete from Conteco can be used anywhere. Read more about other possibilities with Conteco here:

DIY concrete furniture: 

  • Before you start, please make sure that the chosen surface is clean and even. As Conteco is applied in thin layers, joints and unevenness will show on the finished surface if not evened out before application. If used on untreated wood, we recommend spackling out joints and priming the surface before use. Mask off those areas that should not be treated.
  • When the surface is prepared, mix Conteco with Conteco Color Pigment and add Mix & Primer.
  • Apply the first layer – as thinly as possible (approx. 0,5 mm) using a tool of your choice, according to the desired surface (see under “Get the look right”).
  • Before applying the next layer, the surface can be sanded with 120/150 grit sandpaper to obtain a smoother surface. This should be done before the layer is dried up completely as regular sandpaper cannot be used on hardened Conteco. The drying time is 30-60 minutes per layer at room temperature (21-23 °C, 50% humidity).
  • Before applying the next layer, moisten the surface using a water atomizer. This will ensure optimal adherence.
  • Apply additional layers in the same way as the first layer, until the desired result is obtained. This normally takes around 2-3 layers.
  • When the result is as desired and dried up, treat the surface with Conteco Color Sustainer. Apply the product in a thin layer and massage it onto the surface with a microfiber cloth. When dry, apply Conteco Sealer in order to make the surface water resistant and dirt repellent. Mix Conteco Sealer and pour it in a bucket. Apply to the surface using a paint roller. Make sure to apply enough product in order to seal the surface correctly (min. 100ml/m2 per layer). Avoid dry rolling. When the first layer has dried up (approx. after 45-60 minutes, room temperature, 21-23 °C, 50% humidity) and the milky white finish has disappeared, the second layer can be applied, using the same amount of product. Please note that Conteco Sealer must be applied within 2 hours after cross-linker is added to the product.
