Did you know you can get old rubber tires for free? Just go to your local tire shop and ask them for one. The tire shop near me just places a pile in the parking lot that anyone can grab, any time of day.
After giving the tire a good scrubbing, it’s time to paint it. I actually painted this tire for an eHow tutorial, and I turned the rubber tire into a swing. But seeing how I don’t swing so much anymore, I decided to take it down and make a dog bed out of it. For the complete eHow tutorial on how to paint a rubber tire, go here. I had never painted a tire before, and I learned that it wasn’t very hard. I wasn’t sure if the spray paint would stay on the rubber, but it totally did.
