Old tires are resilient: you can turn them into a range of upcycled furniture, from a tire swing to a coffee table. In this case, take a look at how you can transform an old tire into a tasteful, rustic ottoman. A piece that would go well with both modern and traditional decor, this upcycled ottoman is perfect for the living room, the porch, the bedroom, and the bathroom.
- Install the second wooden panel on the other side of the tire, using the same procedure.
- Starting from the center, glue the rope in a circular motif on top of the wood. Continue until you've covered the top and sides of the tire. Keep the base bare. Cut the rope once you’ve covered the required areas.
- With a clean brush, apply sealer over the rope. Air out for one hour before applying a second coat. Place in a dry, airy space and allow for two weeks to dry completely .
