There are so many old things that have a potential to get a new life. A worn out car tire is a good example, as it can be turned into a beautiful table with a piece of wood, rope and glue.
Find How to do it:
- Cover the top with a wooden plate
- If you prefer a table with table legs, also cover the bottom with a wooden plate on which you fasten the table legs
- Glue a rope from the middle of the table top and twist it around until it covers the top and sides, and if preferred also the bottom, of the tire
- Give it a layer of varnish to protect it against dirt.
If you want the table to be tall, you may use two tires on top of each other. It is also possible to make tires into seats by attaching a cushion on the wooden top.
