Let me just say we have already cooked more than one tasty smores around this beauty:
Our backyard isn’t huge, but there is some space for hanging out and fun. My kids love campfires, so a fire pit was added to my 2014 project list and the kiddos early awaited. This project was rolled into the side yard, which will be finished today and I will post pictures tomorrow, and as it turns out it was much easier than I thought. After looking for the perfect pit, this display at Lowe’s ended up sealing the deal:
I already had the metal fire pit part that I bought on Black Friday a couple of years ago for $19, so I wanted to build something around it to fit. I ended up needing 39 number of these bricks:
You can buy them at a hardware store or a nursery. They cost about $2 each and are a trapezoid shape that make a circle simple to create. Level the ground, mark in the soil the shape you want and place the rocks, staggering the levels. This is an easy afternoon project. The only thing I think is noteworthy is that if you have a smaller car, make sure the weight of your bricks won’t weigh it down too much. Other than that, get the chocolate and mallows ready for a party.
Tomorrow, the side yard. Happy Creating!
