My best friend... Maddux's GodMom came down up to stay with us for the weekend, We celebrated my grandpas birthday with some Meatloaf and Euchre at our place.... then ended the weekend with Smores :)
I desperately want to give our little cement patio a makeover... so Lauren I went downstiars to check the basement to see if Rod left any cement paint down there... He did. So we assumed JackPot! so we got some painting clothes on.... went outside dumped the paint out... and (dum.. dum... dum...) barely any in there. so we painted a small square section for fun... and that was that... so maybe next weekend I can finish that project (fingers crossed)
But today I thought I would share our little DIY firepit.
I found someone with an old firepit they no longer wanted... so i could use the bowl... Thank goodness!!! Because I was having no luck with garage sales or Craigslist.
We went to lows and bought some cheap garden paver stone thing a ma jigs.... for about a 1.20 a piece or so. I think we ended up with ... 25 or so?
So this piece all together cost somewhere around 30 bucks....
I have had a few people that have had a hard time finding these blocks and are running into higher priced blocks... We used THESE
They do have 12 inch ones at about 1.60 which would work... and you would use less. so its really up to you. and you could use any bricks you can find :) This is just what worked for us
So here is everything you need... to DIY a fire pit :)
Build a base of bricks... Hopefully you have two adorable guys doing it for you...
Double Check your work to make sure everything is stable and secure... Check
Meanwhile... keep your dogs away from the firepit.... Check
