Today is the last day of school for my kiddos and we are so ready to kick off the summer! What better way to celebrate than with a fire out by the lake. We loved having a fire pit at our old house, but we couldn’t quite decide where we wanted to put one at this new house. We still really haven’t decided, which is why we went with a fire pit table for now instead of something more permanent.
This fire pit table from Hayneedle was the perfect solution. I was lucky enough to partner with Hayneedle again here on our patio space.
I’ve been looking at fire pit tables for a long time, but this was one I’ve never seen. I love that it’s white and fits right in with our Adirondack chairs.
Apparently, you all haven’t seen a white one either, because I shared a sneak peek of this table on instagram last week and my dm’s blew up wanting me to share my source!
I totally get why, most of the fire pits I found were black, brown or faux stone and didn’t fit in with our lake house vibe.
This one is the perfect table to serve a cocktail or snack on and you would hardly know it’s a fire pit until you pop the top off. It’s a little higher than coffee table height (but still comfortable to prop your feet up on), so it makes a great kid’s dining area too!
I love that it hides the propane tank right underneath, so there is nothing complicated to hook up.
The Mr. is one of the smartest guys I know and he is good at lots of things, but his boy scouts skills are definitely lacking. It always took us like an hour to try to get a fire going (not to mention a can of lighter fluid), so having this thing flip on with the turn of a knob is amazing!
We used to have a fire maybe a few times a summer, because we didn’t want to deal with the headache of building a fire, the smoke, and putting it out safely at the end of the night. This table is so easy to use we have been out here almost every night. Even just for a quick half hour with a glass of wine after we put the kids to bed – it’s been a relaxing place to end the day.
I get a lot of questions about our Adirondack chairs and some of them are actual old school wood ones, but we have slowly been replacing them with the Polywood indestructible version a few at a time. Hayneedle has a great selection of them and I love how durable they are.
Oh, one last tip that I shared on instagram – all of my planters out here look so nice and full because I just buy hanging baskets and pop them out of their buckets and into my planters. It’s the easiest way to have nice full planters right away.
Between the pool cabana area (see that here if you missed my last post) and this fire pit area down by the lake, we are set up for a great summer. My favorite thing about living out here is watching my kids grow up making the same types of memories I did when I spent my summers here as a kid.
Happy weekend everybody!
