Old tires – Hard to get rid of and bad for the environment. What’s the solution? Turn them into an ottoman!

Burning or landfills are both unwelcome ideas for disposing of worn-out and damaged tires as they cause health, safety, and environmental problems. This is why recycling, repurposing or upcycling old tires is an alternative encouraged and done by many.

If you have one or some old tires lying in your garage, this idea is a clever and beautiful project you can do.

There are many ways/designs for turning an old tire into this kind of furniture. You can use a rope to cover the tire if you think a rustic style will suit your home. If you like having bright accents in your interior then upholstering it with a colorful fabric is the idea for you.
