This DIY Fire Pit will make for the perfect place for you and your friends to hang out on nice weather nights. You'll love the relaxing setting you can create with this homemade fire pit, and it's a great way to add some beautiful decor to your backyard. Instead of having to bring out the lawn chairs every time to want to sit by the fire pit, make these unique stone seats that used to be bird bath pedestals. Since they're made to be outside, you don't have to worry about damaging weather or rust on your DIY backyard fire pit seats.

What an inexpensive fire pit. I love that it is versatile and that you can make it any size you want because the concept is still the same. I could see putting this on the honey do list this summer for my backyard. We could do smores and so much more. Thanks for sharing.

I love this fire pit and it is so easy to make and I really love the idea to use the bird baths as a seating. I think I would make cushions with some sunbrella (outdoor water resist fabric) so the chair will not be hard to sit on. Did you not use concrete to keep the stones on the pit so they will not fall? Great tutorial . I am making a real small version for my fairy garden too.
