Fire Pit Makeover
My other half found this old propane fire pit in the trash. We used it for a while at first but it was bit of an eyesore so I decided to give it a bit of a face lift.
The old fire pit was falling apart, so I first broke off any other loose pieces. I started to fill the crumbling top in with fiberglass.
Once filled with several layers of fiberglass I sanded it smooth.
Once sanded smooth, I put on a coat of primer. After the primer dried I painted it with high heat black spray paint.
To hide any sanding imperfections and to give it texture I used this netting material I got at a fabric store.
I put the netting material over the top and trimmed it up. I put several layers of Mod Podge over the netting to hold it in place.
Once the Mod Podge was dry, I sprayed it with another coat of black high heat spray paint. Looks great!
For extra protection after the paint dried I sprayed it with polyurethane. Here's the end result! Ones trash is another's treasure!
- $10 for a yard of netting (Joann Faberics)
- $20 fiberglass filler (a local store that was closing but can get in most automotive places)
- $6 paint (also at a local store going out of business)
