Sure, your living room might be pretty well put together. You might have a great sofa or recliner, a big-screen TV, and a little robot that picks up your stray potato chips. But without a good place to put up your feet, is your life really complete?

So unless you have a coffee table that’s just the perfect height (lucky you!), you’re going to want to take a look at this incredible DIY project.

 For starters, you’ll need rope, two pieces of wood, a drill, a glue gun, and some sealant. Oh, and a used tire. / Luis Gomes

Place the wood over the side of the tire and drill at least several holes. / Luis Gomes

Then, secure the pieces of wood in place using screws. / Luis Gomes

Once the wood is secure, find the center, and begin gluing the rope in a spiral pattern outward. / Luis Gomes

Keep gluing as you spiral outwards towards the edge. / Luis Gomes
