This Australian mum has gone viral online after sharing her clever hack for how she upcycled an old car tyre into a stylish ottoman for her lounge.

All she needed was some thin rope, a tyre, some wooden legs and something to fill the gap in the middle.

"Like all my upcycle projects I’m really quite passionate about these guys!" she wrote on her Facebook page 'Modern Mila'.

"It’s so hard to get trendy furniture at a reasonable cost and made sustainably. Plus it comes with that additional storage space under the lid."

Here's a step by step guide to making her stylish ottomans...

Step 1: Start by hot glue gunning the rope to the tyre...

Step 2: Work your way around the outside...

Step 3: Keep going until you're at the top of the tyre...

Step 4: Design your own footrest to complete the design!
