This is the Before shot of our firepit. Not terrible - made with simple cinder blocks and a few rows of roman pavers. It served us well for many years.
We lucked out and found small stacks of pavers, albeit three different colours, being cleared out for $1.00 each. Hubby and I looked at each other and said, "we'll make it work". As it turned out we rather like the randomness of the four different colours.
