It is like reusing the old workless items has come to be my best leisure time occupation.
Recycling materials is an exceptionally rewarding process. It gives one the opportunity of using what people consider as waste and come up with something useful. Most of us have untidy garages and the video below has something to change that. There are piles and piles of stuff inside the garage waiting to be recycled to something useful.
I promise that it is such a fun to take out your working tools and try out the new project. Once, when I got this opportunity to watch how one can turn an old useless tire into something useful, I knew that I had to give it a try.
This simple but very interesting project involves the transformation of a useless tire into a calm, rustic ottoman for the house. A part from the few tools required, you just need a tire, some wood, screws, glue, some sealant, and some rope.

All you’ll need for this amazing DIY ottoman are a tire, wood cut into circles, rope, screws, a screwdriver, a glue gun, a drill, a cloth, a brush, and a jar of sealant.
If you’re utilizing a used tire, make sure to clean it with a dry cloth. If it is particularly dirty, you can scrub it with water, but allow it to dry before moving on. Drill three holes into the wood, deep enough pierce the tire rim.
Use your screws to secure the wood to the tire. Repeat the same on the other side of the tire as well.
Begin the gluing process by securing one end of the rope to the very center of the wood with the glue gun.
Begin to coil the rope around the center, applying glue each round and pressing it down until the rope is secure.
When you’ve covered the wood entirely, do the same thing along the rim of the tire. You’ll want the flow from rope-on-wood to rope-on-tire to be seamless.
Flip the tire over and continue gluing the rope down until you reach the other wooden board.
Once all of the rubber is fully covered in rope, use your scissors to cut it. Glue this end of the rope down securely. You don’t need to cover the other portion of wood because it will be face down!
Use your brush to paint a layer of sealant over the rope. Allow it to dry, and then apply a second coat.
Once your sealant has fully dried, you’ve got your very own rustic, homemade ottoman. You’ll be all ready to kick your feet up!
