DIY: Tyre Chairs
Michelle Long has always had a passion for upcycling used materials to create something beautiful and usable. And so the idea of “Tyre Chairs” was born.
The process wasn’t easy, as the right bands, base coat, paint and fabrics all need to work together to create something practical and pretty.
Her chairs aren’t directed at the commercial market, but for those who want to add uniqueness to their décor. Each tyre chair is custom designed, and sell for R450 each.
They can be used outside, in the lounge, or as a way to spice up a party on the stoep! And the best part? You can pick and choose the colours and fabrics you like.
Like the chairs as much as we do? Then contact the DIY connoisseur behind them: Email Michelle on email@example.com; or Call her on 083 266 0888.
Who knew that old tyres can be turned into furniture that’s both pretty and pracitcal?
