Most people think of cars simply as modes of transportation: Whether it's a beat-up junker or a luxury Rolls Royce, in the end, a car is still just a way to get to point A to point B. But what can you do with a car once it's past its prime? While you could sell it for parts or scrap metal, these artists decided to turn their cars into amazing pieces of unique furniture and home decor. After you check out these 20 creations, you'll never look at an old car the same way again. You might even be inspired to build your own piece.
