Ottomans can be expensive. Finding one you can afford that matches your outdoor decor and is weatherproof can be especially hard.
I had never thought of using rope and a tire to make my own ottoman, but after seeing this Better Homes and Gardens tutorial, I can’t believe I didn’t put it together sooner (literally).
You don’t need that many items to build this ottoman. If you don’t want it to have the ability to roll, you can leave out the casters, pen, hammer, screwdriver, nuts and bolts entirely!
To build, attach the casters to one of your pizza pans. Then, use the construction adhesive to stick the pizza pans on each side of the tire. Use the nylon rope and construction adhesive to wrap the rope all around the tire, starting with a coil in the center of a pizza pan and working outward.
Once you leave it to dry overnight, you’re all done! This ottoman is great to rest your things, prop your feet up, or even as a makeshift chair. I can’t wait to use mine this summer!
