Up-cycling is another exciting avenue for those looking to turn trash in to treasure. This fire pit uses the drum from a discarded washing machine. While that may sound a bit funky, after some work with an angle grinder and a coat of black paint, these creative souls had a beautiful fire pit – complete with an interesting light show. The price of the project supplies even bigger bragging rights – just $10!
