I am starting a new trend, as you all know I do love Junk! Every Tuesday I will be sharing my top five favorite junk inspired finds with all of you! This week I am obsessed with automobile art, looking around for a cute theme for a boy’s room I’ve been scouring the web for awesome car inspired upcycles. I was talking to my friend other day about automobile insurance and he recommended Money Expert to me. They have some great offers! I might have to consider getting a quote. But I digress. I found so many,… but these five are my favorite from this weeks quest.
The firstautomobile art piece is a two tiered bar designed by artist Steve Heller made with parts from an old 1957 Buick, isn’t it gorgeous? He makes furniture pieces, sculptures, lighting fixtures, and more, has some pretty rad cars as well! Check out his awesome art!
Next is this adorable lamp “On The Road Again “created by Melanie over at Bliss Bloom Blog, how cute is that? She shares how she put it together if you feel the hankering to make one yourself. Check her out!
How about this automobile art dresser in a motor oil motif? Chippy vintage is one of my fav’s and I do love the use of license plates! Came across this beauty on Pinterest. The Pin I found had no credit to the artist, however after some research I found it was created by Kristie Chamlee, and was posted on her blog. Check her our via the photolink!
Here is an awesome automobile art bookshelf made from suzuki motorcycle pistons, spanish cedar, and aluminum . You can find it over at Etsy: Matt Johnson Designs
Now, the best for last. We have all seen those awesome vintage car settees with working taillights? How about this killer hand painted buffet with working headlights? This 1953 Oldsmobile piece has the lights, hood ornament, hood emblem letters, and a vintage license plate! I especially adore this one because of its originality, and beautiful paint job! Designed by Paul Wilson and Shelly-Swanson Wilson from Repurposed Designs, I stumbled across this automoblie art piece at Roadkill Customs website but the artists have a facebook page, check them out!
