Add some colour to your interior – use an old bicycle tyre to make a funky mirror frame.

Tools for the job:

  • Paintbrush
  • Drill with 4mm drill bit
  • Screwdriver
  • Dulux SuperGrip Primer
  • Water-based Dulux PearlGlo
  • D-rings
  • Pattex FT101

Step 1

Prime the tyre inside and out with Dulux Supergrip waterbased primer, and leave to dry.

Step 2

Paint the tyre with water based Dulux Pearlglo for walls and trims. It is premium paint for interior and exterior use with a mid-sheen finish.

Step 3

Drill 4mm holes on opposite sides of the tyre, where you want to attach the D-rings.

Step 4

Screw the D-rings in place, and attach the chain to the rings.

Step 5

Run a thick bead of Pattex FT101 round the rim of the mirror then press the tyre in place. It bonds best under pressure, so ideally you want to place a piece of supawood (just larger than the mirror) on top to add weight to the tyre, then leave it to cure for at least 24 hours before hanging the mirror.
