As it turns out, with the right materials and some creativity, you can transform just about anything into a functional and stylish piece of furniture — even old tires!
This project comes from Brazilian decor site Minha Casa. All you need to create your own outdoor, natural-rope ottoman is the following:
- 6mm MDF
- drill or screwdriver
- hot glue gun and glue
- sisal rope
- sealer and paint brush
Once you’ve gathered your supplies, check out the full tutorial on Minha Casa! The instructions are in Portuguese (it’s a Brazilian website, afterall), but the photos are pretty self-explanatory.

it is a grat idea! i run to make it!
in your opinion, how much meter of rope i need for this table?
Tires smell bad. I doubt rope covering it would get rid of the rubber smell. I didn’t read the instructions to see if they used something to take care of that. Hmm. But it is pretty!
I think this would be great for outside.
Perhaps the person who posted this was not aware of the 2012 post by Nikki. Maybe you could ask her?
Love it, but have any of you guys got any suggestions for a bigger version? Love the idea of using tyres but was looking for a larger type of ottoman.
