If you are a regular reader of ‘Lazy daisy jones’ you will no doubt be aware that my ‘old man’ Marc is a talented and imaginative up-cycler? If not, you are about to find out just how clever he can be! Take a look at our newly upcycled fire pit…
Let me explain…
We had recently attended a friends bar-b-q and I had remarked upon and admired their fire pit. I always feel the cold and rarely stay outside in the summer evenings unless wrapped in layers of clothing, topped off with a crocheted blanket or two.
Our Upcycled Fire Pit
A fire pit was top of my ‘wanted’ list. We researched the one we had seen and discovered it was over £100 pounds! I’m sorry to report it was not in our budget range at the time. Therefore I decided it would have to wait until we had re-carpeted the upstairs bedrooms.
“If you are a regular reader of ‘Lazy daisy jones’ you will no doubt be aware that my ‘old man’ Marc is a talented and imaginative up-cycler?”
To cut a long story short Marc returned from work a couple of weeks ago with a huge grin on his face he told me he had a surprise…
Yep you guessed it he had ‘made’ me a fire pit. But not only that, it was bigger and sturdier than the one we had seen and cost nothing but his precious time.
He recycled and made it from an old ‘air cylinder’ that was no longer serviceable.
Lucky for me it was blue (although the paint soon burns off all fire pits) he had cut the bottom off and welded on some large handles…
Later we found a wire grill that matched the circumference exactly; et voila! our new and very
much used and loved fire pit.
Today it was patiently waiting to be put to use. We all love it and it keeps us sooo warm in the garden during the evenings too.
