Repurposing Washing Machines

Curious about my surprise trip last weekend? BC and I flew out to Salt Lake City last Friday to surprise his mom for her 60th birthday. I thoroughly enjoy hanging out with BC’s family, and I’m not just saying that because they confessed that they read Salvaged Grace. They are just so fun to be around and I love having all those neices and nephews underfoot!

After the birthday bash Saturday night, we went over to BC’s sister’s house to enjoy some adult beverages and the fire pit. Imagine my delight to find that BC’s brother in law had made their fire put out of a salvaged washing machine drum.

It got me thinking – how else can one repurpose a washing machine drum?

  1. Yay! So awesome to see this post! I love how those photos turned out, it really makes the fire pit look nice. I never even realized people used the drums for anything else, I honestly thought my husband was crazy when he made it, but I love it!
