34. Fireside Gathering Space

Make a fire pit to turn your backyard into usable entertaining space in chilly weather. Rather than a store-bought bowl, use a steel rim from a truck or tractor tire. Lay it flat on a dirt or gravel surface, ring with stones to hold in place, and build the fire inside.

Find used rims for about $20 at junkyards and auto-body shops.
