Washing Machine Drum gone Firepit

wachine machine drum fire pit

I may have mentioned a similar tutorial before but I am so in love with the idea I had to point to Apartment Therapy’s recent post on how the size and shape of the drum inside a basic washing machine lends itself perfectly to being upcycled into a fire pit.

  1. My Dad uses one this way for twenty years now and I can only recommend it.

    And if you happen to rip one out of an old washing machine, the window glass from the door happens to be a nearly indestructible big bowl for salads etc. So you should save this one too, while you’re at it.

  2. This is a great idea! The finished piece looks — somewhat surprisingly — fantastic and modern.

  3. Thanks for mentioning us again, Tina! xo

  4. Great idea! I’ve been thinking of setting my washing machine on fire for some time now.

  5. Brilliantly done. The result looks great.

  6. My hubby is an industrial washer dryer technician and old washer drums also make fantastic planters.

  7. Looks like a must have to me.
    Thx for sharing.

  8. Really cool idea!
    i will try it, when my washing machine dies.

  9. ooh, i really love this!

  10. What an interesting way to turn something old into something artistic! I’m trying to find your instructions and would very much love to see how this can be made from scratch! Did you mention what kind of washing machine did you get this from?

  11. There is a campsite at Sowerby Bridge, Yorkshire, UK that does exactly this. They have a pile of old drums for use as campfires.

  12. what a great idea and although its original tecnology, its something we can all learn from in todays modern marketplace.
    Good talking point too.
