River’s Walk Shawl


Along with the industrial-style décor also came the concrete bench. Except long before this trend, it already existed. This type of bench was used decades ago, but with a slightly different purpose, usually designed only for outdoor areas, balconies and rustic-style gardens. It was the modern, industrial decor that brought the concrete bench into the house and made it the star of the living room, the lobby, and even closets and dining rooms. In this post you will see more about it and you can make a beautiful River’s Walk Shawl.


Concrete benches can take different shapes as the material is super moldable. You can choose either a large long concrete bench or a tall one-person stool. And one of the biggest advantages of the concrete bench is the price. The material is cheap and you have the option to make your own bank, you can get inspired from the many tutorials available on the internet – including this post, which you will see next.
