As the weather starts to turn, it’s time to emerge from your home-based hibernation and experience the outdoors again. Nothing beats cracking a beer outside with just the heat from a fire on a cool night. Of course, buying a fire pit will easily run you $100+ depending on its shape, size, and quality. Instead, may we suggest, buying a recycled washing machine drum for about 10 bucks and spending an hour turning it into a pretty sharp fire pit for your backyard. This straightforward DIY project doesn’t require many tools, a ton of ingenuity, or a lot of your time, and will leave you with something you’ll use almost year-round.
