I’ve seen people upcycle tires into some pretty creative things (garden beds and such), but this one definitely takes the cake!

    This is the most awesome upcyle ever – as in I am in awe. This is the reason I read blogs. One post like this will keep me wading through all the posts where someone just repaints a piece of furniture.
