Winner - Comment #381 - AEKZ2 said...Like you on FB (Annette E)
My husband has wanted a fire pit since we bought our house two years ago. We don't go camping very often, but he wants to be able to go out in our yard and do manly things - like cook over a fire. We've looked around at fire pits for quite awhile, but he hasn't seen anything he likes in our price range. He wants a big sturdy fire pit with a grill and cover, not just an inexpensive one.
He found just what he was looking for at Hayneedle with the Patina Evening Sky 31" Fire Pit Set.
When the Fire pit came in the mail I was surprised at how heavy it was. I'm just glad that we got it on a Saturday when my husband was home because I don't know how I would have carried that down our stairs and in to our backyard by myself. The box said it weighed about 48 lbs, which makes me seem really weak, but I am pregnant and the box was huge which makes it harder to carry.
When we took it out of the box, I was just as impressed. The metal is thick and sturdy, and I love the moon and stars design.
Due to poor weather factors we haven't been able to light a fire in it yet, but I can't wait to see it all lit up while we are roasting marshmallows at night.
I also like that to make the fire pit safe as well as attractive, there is the metal spark screen grid on the inside of the pit and around the cover. This will keep little hands from poking in where they don't belong, and keep sparks from coming out.
Another feature I love is the rust patina finish. The fire pit does come with a vinyl cover, but the finish should weather the elements well if we forget to put it on.
To Buy - The fire pit set retails for just $229.99 at Firepits.com, and is a great deal for the price. As I mentioned earlier, the fire pit is huge and measures almost 3 feet in diameter. It also comes with a grill insert, a fire poker, and a cover, as well as the previously mentioned fire pit accessories. My husband is really excited to cook on it and wants to go buy a giant piece of meat as soon as the weather here clears up.
