Cool evenings sitting around a backyard fire pit are simply the best!
This stone fire pit was one of the first DIYs during our first summer here at our coastal Maine home. There is plenty of stone on the surrounding border of the property and that is what we used to create this backyard fire pit.
It took a bit of muscle and one crushed finger, other than that it was pretty simple to create…
The stones were super heavy so we used a wheelbarrow and a shovel to move the rocks to a level space in the backyard that we chose for the fire pit.
My goal was to have a round and tall fire pit that I could rest my feet on while sitting on a large upright Adirondack chair.
Building the stone fire pit was like creating a puzzle. It took us three builds to finally get the fire pit to the way we wanted it.
It was a simple trial and error.
There’s nothing like classic white Adirondack chairs.
Don’t you agree?
My favorite are these upright white Adirondack chairs made by C.R. Plastics.
These Polywood Adirondack chairs are made out of long-lasting recycled materials.
The Adirondack chairs weigh in at about 60lbs each and are guaranteed from cracking and peeling.
And will never require painting or staining!
I love them! They will last forever outdoors in New England’s harsh weather.
That was it. A super easy backyard DIY that we will be able to gather around and enjoy for years to come!
