How To Turn Old Tyres Into A Table

Give old tyres a new lease on life 

Give old car tyres a new lease of life as a coffee table. Choose tyres about 650mm in diameter and paint them white to contrast against grass or timber decking. 

Working in a well-ventilated area on a dropsheet, hold the can 300mm from the tyres, spraying lightly from side to side. 

Stack the tyres once the paint has dried and add a glass top that’s 850mm in diameter. Recycle glass from an old table or buy a piece from a salvage yard.
