Just a Lil’ DIY Fire Pit

outdoor fireplace camp fire pit

Our bonfire area

The hubby and I built this awesome area for our bonfires! They seem to be pretty frequent this year, so we finally made an official outdoor fire area. It was fun making this area together and it was very easy and free!

Eddie cut a fallen pine into 3 foot sections to use as benches around the fire. They’re great! The rocks around the fire pit were found around the yard, woods, and the creek. We’re planning on building the rocks up into a more stable wall with some kind of cement or grout soon. For now, the rocks contain the fire and help give it stability.

I just love this spot in our yard now! I’m thinking about adding some mulch or pebbles around it to define the space better. There are so many things we could do with it! Do you have a favorite DIY outdoor area? What is it and how did you build it?
