Re-purposed washing machine drums

There was a post recently that showed a garden with all sorts of re-purposed washing machine drums as planters. I saw this link this morning in the Waste Nothing group and had to share. A few of them are garden junk style, so I figured it's OK to post here. These folks are VERY creative-I want the fire pit one!!!

I love the tables and the peacock.
Wouldn't coals fall thru the raised "firepit"?
It was years ago we got rid of our washer and now have a front loader. If only i'd known.
