I wanted a patio. My husband wanted a fire pit. We compramised, worked together and came up with this. All done with stuff laying around the house. We hauled the flagstone from an old sidewalk on the side of our house, the fire pit is half an old barrel and the landscaping rocks are from a flower bed I moved. The shells are from a trip to the shore. I would like to add more seating, flowers, maybe a patio table and even make the patio bigger but we ran out of flagstone rocks.
