DIY: How to Recycle your Old Tires !
Even Old Tires deserve to be pretty! Usually once we are done with the old tires we start thinking how to get rid of them, but this is just because we are not aware of the fact that these trusty, old tires can be transformed into the most beautiful ottoman you have ever seen! So what we basically need to make this happen is the following:
- 6mm MDF
- Screws Drill or screwdriver
- hot glue gun and glue
- Sisal rope
- Sealer and paint brush
May be you are wondering how you are going to do this! It is easy, fun and you can do it on your free time. So what you have to do essentially is to pick up a tire from the garage, clean it with a dry piece of cloth, then cut two circular pieces of MDF that would cover the top and the bottom of the tire, after that drill three holes spaced points on the edge (they should cover the rubber). Tighten the screws so that they are fixed to the tire. Now after you are done with this, you can start gluing the rope to the tire. Start from the middle, first apply glue at the center of the circle and attach one end of the rope to it, press it well (It would be better if someone can help) and start wrapping the rope as you do so, make sure you put more glue before each turn. When finished with the top, turn the tire upside down and continue the work. Now that you have all the rubber part covered, apply the sealer with the brush to give it a unique look. And there you go enjoy your new, comfortable and stylish ottoman!
