Our hot tub quit working last summer! When we found out that is was going to be over $1000 to fix it, we started exploring other options for that space! A fire pit area seemed like a no-brainer since our house is the hangout place for all of the kids in the neighborhood! We were so excited to find these pieces from Macy’s at such amazing prices! Macy’s is having a HUGE sale with prices that can’t be beat! During their Big Home Sale, you can use code HOME from July 31st to August 4th to save even more!
Here is a photo before the makeover! The kids did honestly love the hot tub, but they spent more time in the pool! And I know that they will get so much use out of our revamped fire pit area!
Is this even the same space?!?! I would be lying if I told you that I just snapped my fingers and this serene environment appeared! Projects are always more work than I anticipate! Whenever I get an idea for a project, I know that Briton just cringes! I told him that I wanted to get rid of the hot tub and create a fire pit area! He wasn’t thrilled at first because that meant a project for him too – removing the hot tub! I texted my brother to see if he and his friend would haul it away while we were in Colorado as a surprise to Briton! He was so surprised!
After the hot tub was removed, I power washed the area and purchased black 3/4″ piping! I was hoping that I would be able to just put those right into the ground, and they would be stable! Yeah…. that didn’t happen! My brother helped me dig holes, add cement, and in way more hours than I had originally thought, lights were hung!
I added an outdoor rug to soften the space and a smaller round rug (similar) to go under the fire pit! I love this fire pit SO much! It is run by propane! I love that I can push a button to turn it on and off! I also love that I don’t smell like a campfire and no sparks fly!
