PROJECT SIDEYARD: SHED AND AFFORDABLE FIRE PITS

Our shed is done!



(It's a cute 4x10 garden shed.  We had it custom made to match our house)


Currently, we are trying to figure out the fire pit.

Mark wants the flexibility of a portable one (more play space for the kids and he wants to make the ice rink bigger this year.)


Here are some affordable yet stylish fire pits...


Portable Fire Pits

       

1.  I actually like the look of this and is on sale at Stein's ($80!), a local garden and gift shop.  I am a little concerned  though that there might be too much chippendale going on with the faux bamboo set.

2.  I love the modern look of this Crate and Barrel fire pit.  It is massive and also on sale.

3.  Always a classic.

4.  The base reminds me of the spun fiberglass furniture.

5.  Pretty cool but very heavy!

6.  Not as cool as 5 but much lighter.


BUT

I, on the other hand, want a stone fire pit.  



I think I've convinced Mark that this is the way to go.  Since we have concrete flooring now, I think we can DIY a semi permanent stone fire pit. 
It's a good compromise, don't you think?!
(I may have promised him that I would move the fire pit come winter time) 




Call me crazy.

I love the Home Depot stone example you shared - I also love #1, but think stone works better with the (purty!) furniture you have - Lovely!

Your shed is too cute - I love it. And you guys will enjoy the fire pit so much I think the semi permanent option is worth it.
