How to Make a Low Budget Fire-pit by Night-coffee Table by Day!

This was one of the easiest & fastest projects I've ever done, but I think one of my favorites, not to mention it's also easily transported to anywhere I like!
Supplies you'll need, (1) Galvanized bucket,(2) 4-wood feet for the bucket to sit on. (3) 4- washers & nuts (4) one old nut, me! bahaha (5) 3- tiki torch canisters (6) dirt, gravel & glass rocks (7) round piece of wood, LOWE'S carries these in a variety of sizes!
The feet, washers & nuts.
Now simply drill your holes in the bottom & screw your feet on! I also screwed a few extra holes for drainage in case water gets in there.
Here's a picture of the round top you will need. I spray painted mine blue & a coat of poly to help protect.
While the top was drying I got my dirt & tiki canisters & positioned in the dirt.
Next, just fill your top with your glass rock & gravel!
Now just light her up & enjoy!!!
This is my dog, Ellie Mae, she's sorta like my husband, they both give me that look, like, what are you doing now!
Now, when the party's over just put your lid back on & relax!

    I made this for my daughter as a house warming. A little larger and didn’t use the gravel just the glass (and sand at base)! I also left my torches a little higher for ease in unscrewing and refilling the torch. Still looks beautiful. Thanks for great idea!

      I’ll have to measure when I go back to my daughters. I think you could do without feet but it is a much better height for sitting around with the feet I think. Totally up to you! 😊
