There is nothing quite like lighting up the fire pit in our backyard on a relaxing summer evening. The crackle of the fire, a cool breezy mountain evening, and the taste of freshly roasted marshmallows are a trifecta of summer goodness for me.
So when my hubs found this little gem on CraigsList for five bucks, I was pretty excited.
Of course, it looked a bit like it had seen better days…
But the handle, lid, grate, basin, and stand all lift apart. So I hosed the pieces off, then grabbed a drop cloth and laid them out. I gently hammered the top from the back side to straighten out the dome.
This little can of spray paint–Rustoleum High Heat enamel–is made for high heat applications and only costs $3.88. Perfect!
You wanna know what’s awesome about spray paint? I mean, besides its ease of application…
The stand went from dumpster-ready sad…
…to sleek and new, in minutes! All it took was one can, one coat!
Ahhhh, much better!
Anyone else feeling the CraigsList hunt bug coming on? I chatted all about that back here, with our house full of furniture for under $200 post! Go git ‘em! Now pass the marshmallows, and let’s do this thing, y’all!
