DIY Project: Ottoman From Old Tire

Tire Ottoman DIY | The Urban Pig

Please Note: This idea was originally found on Pinterest and sourced to “That Was A What?!” You can find her tutorial here, but she does charge for instructions.

My hands are permanently black (FYI: wear gloves for this project!), I have overcome two blisters, and my back aches from several days of gluing rope to a tire, but it’s done! When Connor bought his truck, he got this old tire and wheel with it for free, but it didn’t fit his truck, so it was given to me to do as I please. I had just seen the idea to turn it into an ottoman a few weeks before, so the idea was fresh in my head, and thankfully I didn’t get rid of the old tire. The ottoman I made is a bit different from the original tutorial, so I am sharing what I did and what helped me the most to make this awesome project!



Headboard Inspiration & DIY’s

I have a little round up of some inspiration and some of the images even have DIY’s at the link if you are interested in building yourself a new headboard!

Living in an apartment, it can be really difficult to do large projects, and unfortunatly for me, there are several of these that I have on my to-do list, just waiting for the time and space to work on them. One of the major projects that I have been considering for quite some time now is to fix up the bed frame that I have had for at least five years. It was actually for a waterbed, but when Connor and I moved in together, we replaced the waterbed with his mattress, which is so much more comfortable. We kept the bedframe for two reasons: 1. He didn’t have a bed frame, 2. It has really awesome storage underneath, three drawers on each side.
