Nothing beats kicking your feet up after a tiresome day and drinking a refreshing drink. However, this whole idea can go down the drain if you don’t have a coffee table of perfect height or a footrest at home. However, do not worry. We have a DIY technique that will allow you to create your own footrest and that too without much of an effort. Check it out below.
You’ll need an old tire, some rope, two pieces of wood cut in circles, a drill, some screws, a glue gun and some sealant.
Clean the tire if it’s used and then place the wood on top and bottom. You’ll have to drill holes at three places.
Secure the wood to the rubber using screws.
Locate the center and start gluing the rope.
Spiral the strand and continue to glue as you work it.
Once you’re at the edge of the wood and tire, make sure you flush them together with skill.
Flip the tire and continue gluing while you place the rope.
Once you hit the bottom piece of the wood, cut the rope off.
Paint some sealant on the rope and once it is dried, apply a second coat as well.
Here you go, a homemade nautical ottoman.
