#3 Tire footrest

There are a couple ways to do this one. One way is to take your old tire, paint it, and then add a round pillow in the center and you’ve got a footrest/ottoman. Another way to do this if you are going for more of a classic rustic look is to add a bit of rope. You’ll need a round board of some sort to eliminate the hole in the top of the tire, some rope, and just a few more items to put it all together. Check it out by clicking here.

#4 Tire table
