This was our sad, little fire pit. It seemed like a good idea five years ago, but as you can see it is pitiful pit. LOL!
We decided that this sad fire pit needed beefed up and it needed to be well round. We priced out fire rings and mobile fire pits but the quality just wasn't there and some of them were too much money. So, we decided to make our own. Lowe's has a pretty good tutorial we didn't use as many pavers/stones as Lowes did, but you get the idea.
Aww, much better! Now, that looks like a real fire pit. We got the adirondack chairs for $25.00 a piece unfinished. I stained them with dark stain. I sewed the pillows and used fabric from a yellow table cloth that I had bought from a thrift store.
The picnic table was white and I painted the top of table and seats brown. I think the brown gives it a little character and goes better with the chairs.
Now, we can spend these crisp fall nights by our new fire pit. I love looking into my backyard now!
