What a great idea for car tires! The penny counter is a great deco idea as well.

This would be a fun place. And Melissa is easy on the eyes. I do like those tires converted to plant pots or numbers or ?

Interesting and creative use of those old tires. They must have had paint left over from doing the trim on this shop. Perfect reflections.

My opera Italian is good enough to inform me that tesoro means treasure. She's one but the table hasn't kept up with inflation.
