DIY Fire Pit from a Washing Machine

Thanks to Michelle Loynes of A Noodoll Life for letting us feature their DIY fire pit made from an old washing machine drum.

Home Made Fire Pit: Up-cycled Washing Machine!

Michelle and her family had a break from the rain. However their area wasn’t particularly warm, and they wanted to get some garden time, so her husband had an impromptu fire using an old metal bin.

The makeshift fire pit was such a success that they wanted to have a permanent solution. But they’re not willing to spend a fortune on a new fire pit. After a bit of research they stumbled upon a washing machine fire pit conversion. With a free broken washing machine from freecycle, a couple of pieces of timber from salvaged slats, and spare bolts from previous projects, they built this clever and inexpensive fire pit!

Would you like to have one of these in your backyard?

You’ll need these materials:

  • Metal Drum from a washing machine
  • Wood Planks – about 3″ wide, for legs
  • Bolts

And these tools:

  • Drill
  • Screw Driver
