These old car parts have been upcycled into some of the most phenomenal and creative DIY projects I’ve ever seen! When we made the wheel rim fire pit to add to our other patio decor, it got me thinking about more projects and crafts to make from old car parts. I was astounded to find awesome DIY decor, upcycled furniture ideas, and projects that will go perfectly in the backyard.
I particularly love blending the masculine, industrial feel of all the different car parts and the rustic, tailored finish these projects give them. I would be happy to add almost every one of these projects to the rest of my home decor. Those I wouldn’t add to my space make cool man cave ideas that I’m sure any guy would be thrilled to have. (Not all of these have tutorials to show you how to make them, but you can either buy them or use them for cool DIY inspiration

Now, my sister in law is using the old one because I own two of these! Piece two tire rims together to get a comment worthy outdoor fireplace that you can even grill on!
