I was SUPER excited when I got my latest Lowe’s Creative Ideas email. It said:
For June & July, your challenge is to make your outside space more appealing, more fun and more memorable. Give your backyard a little lift that will keep your loved ones laughing and smiling all summer long.
When we bought this house, we had some landscape plans drawn up. These plans included a lounge area in one of the corners of my backyard with a fire pit. Then we remembered we had 2 little kids (man, those were the days ) and a swing set that needed a home. So, the fire pit never happened and we put the swing set in its place. That was almost 9 years ago and the swing set has had better days.
The time has come to get rid of that sucker and install the fire pit…or has it?
I went to Lowe’s and saw this sucker right out front:
It’s a fire pit kit that includes the metal ring and a cover for under $200. It comes in 2 color schemes (with other pavers/castle stones/etc available, too).
They were in the back of the garden center at my Lowe’s.
I came home to make a final color decision and as I walked back into the house, I noticed this situation with my deck:
And then I looked closer:
Dude. My deck is about to collapse.
So, instead of the 9 years in the making fire pit, I’m fixing my deck. Woo?
And I’m making BC put this behemoth somewhere else
because I feel like it’s kind of to blame.
Stay tuned to see how that all plays out.
