I was challenged to create something from a recycled tire and I loved the idea of a planter. I had planned to spray paint it at first, but I really wanted something that was different and wouldn't look like a tire at first glance.
I absolutely love how the planter turned out. It came out even better than I had imagined!
I used an old tire, a wood spool end, and some scrap wood to create the planter.
To go along with the automotive upcycling, I also built a tailgate bench. I love how they look together! For more details on how I built the planter, head over to my blog for the full tutorial.
