Rose Hughes upcycles an old tyre into this super stylish outdoor footrest.
You will need: 1 old tyre, 9mm sisal rope (amount required will vary with tyre size – I needed 5 x 15m packs), 6mm ply for top and base, optional feet: 20mm timber or similar cut into 4 squares, 65mm x 65mm pieces, suitable glue and small brush, a few fine gauge nails (to help hold the rope in place while the glue dries), Jigsaw, screwdriver & 8g x 50mm screws, sandpaper, tape measure and pencil, stain and paintbrush (I used Resene Woodsman Wood).
Cost: $95 excluding tyre and paint.
