How to Make a Fire Pit Seating Area: Backyard Makeover – Thrift Diving

Last summer I created a DIY fire pit for my backyard. But since that time, the fire pit started looking like it was just floating in the backyard and it really needed a DIY fire pit seating area to anchor it. Home Depot sponsored this project, sending me the edgers, and I created the fire pit seating area for my family to entertain! Now it’s ready for spring and summer! #thriftdiving #sponsored

Stay tuned because I’ve got more outdoor projects coming soon!

Wait, you bought all those bags of rock?!? Don’t you have a place that you can buy rock by the truck load?? Or am I just a spoiled Oregonian that gets lots of those kinds of places? Cause within 10 miles of my house I have three different places that I can buy truck loads of rock/dirt/whatever and they will come and deliver it or I can take a truck and they will scoop it up in a tractor and dump it into the back of my truck. It’s also like $40 for a β€œyard” full depending on size and type of rock.

Looks fabulous!! You definitely built up your muscles with all of that hard AND heavy work! It has been raining here so i had to take a little break from my yard work. I found myself sinking in the mud lol! So I went to my favorite thrift shop and scored big time!! I just had a hip replacement surgery in October and was basically in pain for many many years! I’m technically too young to have such major arthritic damage so no one took me seriously when I told them my pain was coming from my hip. I’m having my left hip replaced next October because home based physical therapy was awesome during a Pennsylvania Fall! Long long story short- a ton of things were neglected both inside and out. But I’m way better now even with a bad left hip! I’ll be 50 June 3 but my new Bionics make me feel like I’m in my 30’s again! I scored a 1900’s Sideboard and an Iron Bed for less than $50!!! Woohoo! So on my take it easy days I will work on my furniture!
I’m still with you though on these challenges! I hope you had a Wonderful Mother’s Day!!!
