Stone Veneer Firepit


Well I havn't been able to put a fire in it yet due to the fire ban, but there is a good chance of rain the next couple of days. In the meantime, I put the adirondack chairs together and stained them. I also started on getting rid of the massive pile of sand I had left over.





Chairs were purchased several months ago and were on sale for only $29ea at Ace Hardware. I got a small can of Olympic Canyon Brown Toner for about $12 to make them look nice.

They look great! Nice color too!

I hope you get to have a fire pretty soon. Do a rain dance.

Next thing you know it will be raining for six months and you won't even be able to go outside without a slicker on!

Nice chairs...and what a bargain! And you even picked a colour to go with your fire pit!

Man, what a difference a little furniture makes around that fire pit. Why don't you put some flickering lights in there and pretend you're having a fire.

Man, that's been a long time coming. So I guess we will see the pics later on. Are you hiring some belly dancers for the occasion?

Wait a month or so and you'll be able to roast chestnuts over an open fire while you're singing the song and watching for .
