In need of a cheap and easy DIY? I am! And this is it! It will be a fun way to use up the leftover cement from your last project. (If there isn’t any in the garage, you can grab a bag of concrete for $10). Hometalk has a great tutorial that I am happy to feature here today. These stools will look great outdoors in the garden or patio.

DIY Flagstone Veneer Fire Pit

I love it when someone else has gone before me and gotten the trial and error out of the way. That is what Instructables has done for us. They have taken the guess work out of making this fire pit and I am grateful for the avoided heartache. Working with flagstone will suck up your time (each piece’s size and thickness is different) but they look awesome. Pavers are easier and uniform but it all depends on what look you are going for.
