Trashy Fire Pit

Pin It
This one is for the hubster!

Hubs has been wanting a fire pit for the longest time, but not being a necessity... wasn't happening.
UnTiL...
best wife ever found this beauty headed for the dump!
I know what you're thinking!
Why would anyone want to just dump such a great piece of lawn decor, RiGht?
                                                                                         No?
Yea, well hubster didn't agree either,
UnTiL...
I introduced him to a little can of whoop butt I know.
Rust-oleum Specialty High Heat Ultra Spray in Black Gloss.


Rusty, ugly little fire pit
+
a half hour of cleaning and 1 can of spray...

Nice work Kimberley! Thanks for the tip about the paint too...I scored almost exact same fire pit in a yard sale last year and it could do with a little lurv!

I find my man can't see the potential in things like that either! He's in for a shock when I move in, I'm excited to have a garage, yard and power tools for furniture remodels! lol

Woohoo - that is one serious-looking fire in there. How fabulous. Amazing what a little facelift can do huh. :) Thanks for sharing at our party this week.

What a great way to save some money and also keep that pit from ending up in the landfill when it still had some life left in it :) My sister and I both have one, and love making s'mores with our young teens. Now we know how to revitalize it when it gets rusty from sitting out through our long winter.

Looks great and you will get so much enjoyment out of it!

Katie said...

I so need to do this--ours is just as rusty as yours looked! My hubby would be surprised! I wonder if the high heat comes in any other colors! I think it would be fun to give it a color!

What a great idea. We have been thinking of getting an outdoor fire pit now that the kids are older. We think it would be a great idea for those summer nights when we aren't camping. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful tip.
