As a kid, I loved playing on an old tire swing that my Dad has made. As I grew, the more I talked to people it appeared many friends had an old car tire in their home. Your worn tire is probably stacked away in your garage taking up space or in the trunk of your vehicle where it’ll never see the light of day. You didn’t even realize that keeping that tire is a great idea.
In my opinion, round furniture is stylish for your home decor. Think of it round dining tables or even an ottoman is hard to refuse. I love it, but I don’t like the hit it can take on my bank account. We’re all trying to budget nowadays so why not work with what we have at home? Now is when your old tire comes in handy!
If you’re thinking of getting new furniture, or maybe your kids are asking for new outdoor toys this summer, then your answer is just sitting in your garage. The car tire can convert to all of these pieces and meet for all your needs With just a few simple modifications and a bit of your time, that tire can be transformed into something you’ll greatly enjoy!
Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look at what some creative people did with their old car tire.
