Colder weather is around the corner and since we’d love to keep using our patio as long as we can, I’ve started hunting for a great fire pit. Before I show you the fire pits I’ve found so far (post includes some affiliate links), I’d love to show you where it will be going. You can consider this a “before” tour because I haven’t done a single thing to our patio since we moved in a year ago. No pillows, no cute side tables, nada. But I’ve got some great bones to work with as far as the patio itself.
You can step right out onto the patio from our kitchen but there’s also a stone walkway leading to it from the side of the house. Hope will lead the way…
My husband is our resident landscaper – he deserves props for keeping those boxwoods framing the patio beautifully shaped:
This is where the fire pit will go – surrounded by these four chairs in place of the coffee table:
You all know my decorating style pretty well by now so it probably won’t surprise you that I’m looking for a fire pit with a simple design and rustic elegance. My favorite is this Iron Oxide Patina Wood Burning Fireplace from Lowe’s – the flat ring around it would be perfect for resting happy hour cocktails! The only problem is the price – yikes! Maybe it will go on clearance?
I also found some great copper fire pits that would develop a beautiful, weathered patina over time. And they’re reasonably priced. My favorite is this Hand Hammered Copper Fire Pit:
I also love this Stone Base Fire Pit:
and this Cast Iron Dish Fire Pit:
So what do you think – are any of these looking like “the one” to you?
