How To: Turn an Old Tire into a Rustic Ottoman

When you think about it, a tire is a perfect place to rest your feet. It’s round, plenty sturdy, and soft enough to easy accept hardware while being rigid enough to maintain it.

So, Handimania figured out a way to do just that. It basically combines everything that we love about a good project, including upcycling, using raw materials, and not spending a ton of time on it.

And? It only takes a few tools like a drill and a glue gun.

Plus, it can also be used as extra seating (super good for crowded parties!) or even as a coffee table. We like the look as is, but if you want to add an extra somethin’ somethin’ then just add some paint or use a different kind of rope, perhaps one of those colorful nylon ones would work (neon anyone?). Plus, if you plan appropriately, it would equally well inside or out on the deck or patio.
