DIY Modern Fire Pit

A sleek fire pit is a backyard essential for keeping friends and family close and the mosquitoes away. The design of the fire pit is modern and complimentary to any backyard décor or theme. The inside perimeter is lined with red fire brick to prevent cracks forming in the concrete, which will eventually turn black from the fire. A DIY project like this costs roughly $250 and a few hours of rewarding labor.

How to make it

 

Outdoor Dining Table

A stand out feature and my personal favorite touch are the oversized, exposed bolts on the legs. This along with the raw saw marks and authentic hand-rubbed finish create a rustic look. The extended tabletop and trapezoidal shape is a polished and pragmatic feature. The solid acacia wood ensures a timeless piece while the kiln-dried hardwood guarantees durability. Prices at $1500CAD, this table value will exceed its price tag.

Outdoor Concrete Table

Being an avid fan of minimalism, I apply the same “less is more” philosophy to home décor, and nothing says this more than concrete. Apart from being aesthetically pleasing, concrete is a practical material for outdoor use. As long as it is sealed, concrete is strong enough for snow and sufficient enough for rain. The simplicity of this design is very versatile and easily customizable. The above picture is made out of a countertop grade concrete and start at about $1500CAD, though it can be DIY-ed for less.

 

Outdoor Sofa

This beautiful sofa from Restoration Hardware will let your whole gang look cool while getting comfy. Available in a wide variety of customizable color ways, the black is my favorite for adding a sophisticated presence to your space. Made of grade A teak, mortise and tennon, this sofa will last you many patio parties. At a whopping $3195, this investment piece will cause some serious backyard envy.
