Back Yard Fire Pit and Chairs


I love this spot in my backyard. It is not complete but I will add to the post as it goes. We are adding a deck around the fire pit because we have these wonderful trees and it is very hard to grow grass. The chairs are made in an Adirondack style but not quite so deep in the back. This makes them easier to get in and out of. I have painted a couple and stained some. The beauty of these chairs is they were made from fencing wood. It is so much lighter weight and it weathers well. The rustic look is good for me also. You can't tell much from the pictures, but the height of the chairs is a little different so short people can enjoy too. The seat is a little wider so I can have my Dachshunds sit with me (since it's me or them). The wide arm lets me have a coffee spot. I love it. Thank you again Honey! The plans for these chairs are at Lowes.com. I also love my fire pit. The bricks came from Lowes and they are just stacked in place. They have a lip on them for stacking. The bottom is Lowes pavers and a little dry cement poured in the cracks and wet to harden. We love sharing fire side chats with our friends. Now on to the decking. Thinking about using old pallet wood.
