A Fire Pit Makeover

As I pulled our patio together this spring, I decided to fix the fire pit once and for all! If you’re interested to see how you can easily makeover any fire pit, this post is for you.

Sand

In an effort to make this last for awhile and to eliminate the deeper etchings, I decided to give the fire pit a really good sanding prior to painting it.

Wipe it clean

Before painting, you’ll want to wipe the surface really well, removing any debris or residue from sanding.

I carefully masked off the electrical and gas components.. the center portion, as well as the control panel and knobs. Once everything is masked off- you’re ready to paint!

Spray paint

I used Krylon’s High Heat spray paint in flat black. This paint withstands very high temperatures (up to 600° F) and protects against rust.

I did remove the volcanic rock, so I could hit the inside with a fresh coat of paint. I also scrubbed it really well!

We’ve spent hours around this fire pit and I’m looking forward to making more memories this year.
