Moving on from Harry Potter, although I know its hard :) I was going to post the big backyard drainage update we did this past weekend but my husband is slacking in getting me the deets on the pipes we used and I feel like crap and dont want to figure it out on my own, lame I know. But I AM going to share with you a crappy product, yay!
So you remember I showed you how we made our backyard awesome last year (you can find the post here). Well one of the things I wanted in the backyard was a firepit, but not one that everyone has but a cool looking one. Well we didnt really have a bunch of money to spend but I saw one at Wal-Mart that I thought was cool and was only $100, score! You can see the product here. Below is a shot of the firepit from last year after about 2 months
What the heck it was already rusting! So we bought some high heat spray paint and some red/yellow/orange spray paint and fixed it up. I had the great (I still think so) idea to paint flames on the grates of the firepit to make it look fancy and hello there is supposed to be fire in there so why not its an original idea dang it! Well Joe is the artist of the family so he made a stencil or sorts and got to painting. It looked really good...for 2 months and now it looks like this
Do you have any item you bought that you loved but turned into a piece of crap?
