please email me your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm having trouble capturing your emails. I think there may be a glitch with this post because of all the comments (complimenting glitch to have, I guess!). The words I'm typing aren't even showing up right now! (FYI: I have the instructions in an ebook on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Turn-Fabulous--A-Kind-... and on Lulu at http://www.lulu.com/shop/home-attire/how-to-...). The instructions are as clear as I could write them and have worked for several people, but if you're not comfortable with directions that allow you to make your own crafty tweaks and creative interpretations along the way, they may not be for you. ~Nikki
This is my upcycled ottoman, i made it with an old 26" tire, plywood, glue, manila rope in a round design, in the center a Gentleman's Jack bottle cap, all of these items were recycled
items ( except the manila rope) and added fence caps as legs for extra savings. htt://www.hooarte.blogspot.com

Yay! Another tire ottoman! Looks great Hoover! So proud to see my idea is getting
around--that's one more tire saved from the landfills! Regarding the rubber smell, when I made the original tire ottoman back in August, in the heat of summer in "Hotlanta," there was a slight smell that diminshed quickly, but it was from the manila rope, not the tire. So, you shouldn't have any smell issues come next summer. Enjoy!
Hi Everybody! Man, what a whirlwind this has been since I posted my tire ottoman idea. I know the power of Social Media, but wow! For those who have suggested and asked, yes, I have considered and have decided that I will be marketing my ottoman. Hopefully I haven't hurt the possibility of sales by sharing all the down and dirty how-to details with everyone. But, hey, generosity can only be rewarded, right? For all you DIYers, I know you can make your own, but for those not so
inclined, I'll have tire ottomans for sale soon--and of course for much less than my inspiration ottoman! Yay for recycling! Go Earth!
I followed the instructions for this ottoman off of thatwasawhat.blogspot.com when I first saw this on pinterest over a month ago. I am so in love with this thing. It took a while for me
to get it done, but it was worth the effort and burns from the hot glue gun. Thanks Nikki and good luck on the opening of your new store. I can't wait to check it out!

Hi Phyllis, the directions in the Ebook are the same that were on the blog. It's on Lulu and
Amazon. The Ebooks have distribution rights so you have to download a free version of Adobe to open them. I only put the rights on the books because I've had a few people comment on public sites that they were going to sell my idea (figured I might as well beat them to it). If you decide to get the book and have any issues, just send me a message here and I'll email them to you. Of the books I've sold, I've only heard from 3 people having problems downloading (or not wanting to download). Good luck with your ottoman if you decide to make one. I know you'll love it! Share pics if you make one!
