Have you ever wondered what you could do with the drum from an old washing machine? Well, check out this really brilliant idea that becomes something very useful and attractive – a fire pit!
This project was done by Sarah at House and Fig site. The cost was an old washer drum plus $10 in other miscellaneous supplies! That’s it! The time to put this fancy fire pit altogether took 1-hour!
There’s probably not many uses for an old washer drum, but this one is truly innovative and so we had to share this and pass along the project to you.
You can see the complete step-by-step instructions and ideas on what they used to repurpose this washer drum on the House and Fig site HERE.
We love the very creative and practical nature of this DIY project – plus the minimal cost and time involved!

I go to click on this link and it doesn’t take me to the page to show me how to make a fire pit.
I would think with it being metal it would get awful hot
How long do these usually last?? Do you need to limit how long you burn each fire?? I am wanting to make this for our annual ag auction, but I dont want to make something that isnt going to last
I just read that if you use a stainless steel drum it will last forever. Putting it away between uses will help too. I saw one put on an old mower . . . wheel in, wheel out. Very clever.
How hard is it going to be to get the drum out of the dryer
First of all, you need the washer not dryer. Secondly, if you have an assortment of tools and some help it isn’t that hard nor long to get it out. A few screws and some wriggling, two amateurs (me and a friend) under an hour.
I’ve learn some just right stuff here. Certainly price bookmarking for revisiting.
I wonder how a lot attempt you set to make this type of fantastic
