Before & After: The Wash Machine Garden Patio Heater/Incinerator

Wash machine garden fireplace makeover re-cycle repurpose upcycled incinerator

Instructables: perhaps my new favorite website.

Want to make your own stainless steel re-cycled/ upcycled garden fireplace incinerator from a wash machine or dryer? Head over to the very do-able instructable page.
This is definitely interesting….I think it would be best if you had a whole bunch of them (one looks a little junky to me, but 3 or more could be a fabulous design statement). What do you think?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Great idea. I love Instructables. I can spend quite a bit of time there just browsing for ingenuity.

    Impressive work! I never thought a wash machine could be recycled into a patio heater that looks great. We could add this unique patio heater to a heart warming garden.
