It is almost time for some cozy crackling fire, isn’t it? Let’s talk firewood rack and creative firewood storage ideas for indoors and outdoors!
Besides being functional and practical, log holders and firewood storage racks can actually be very attractive as well. These DIY firewood racks will give you plenty of ideas and inspirations to make your own, in as little as a few minutes!
Honestly, although I love the look and feel of a fireplace, I am no expert at how to light a fire. Two years ago, we stayed at a bed and breakfast cabin in the mountains outside Los Angeles. I found a huge log, got so excited and put it right in the middle of the burning fireplace. Apparently this is not how to add firewood. Jeff thought I was going to burn the whole place down… whoops.
However, as a home and garden designer, I do feel more qualified sharing ideas on these gorgeous and DIY friendly firewood rack ideas! 🙂
