Re: DIY speaker stands

I'm still thinking of a way to make them look more visually appealing, but for now a couple of coats of latex paint gave a smoother finish and stopped the concrete dust in its tracks. I didn't need to use construction adhesive as the paint anchored the blocks together. A 75lb speaker stand is a bit tricky to move but I used some of those plastic furniture gliders. Got them in position in the listening room and spent the evening enjoying some music. I'm very pleased with them, and even the wife commented that they "sounded good".

Total cost less than $10 as I already had the paint!

Re: DIY speaker stands

Wow those stands are bulletproof literally! Very nice! Definitely has a nice industrial look to them! The only thing I can think of to potentially dress them up would be pvc or wood moulding around the top and around the base of the stand. But they look pretty cool as is

Re: DIY speaker stands

A picture with the speakers on top of the stands (via plumbers putty). I'm still thinking about adding another horizontal block at the base to bring the top of the stands up to the level of the TV.
