Car Wall Art

Car Wall Art {Dolen Diaries}

The Dolens dig unusual artwork. We love having pieces that you aren’t going to find in the neighbor’s house and have a great story. This Car Wall Art is one of those pieces.

In 2010 a dear friend had a Soapbox Derby Race for his birthday party. It was SO much fun and the car building was really competitive. Micah made our car look like a vintage 2002 BMW {not the year 2002, the car model 2002} and we all loved it.  So much work went into this and after the race we weren’t sure what to do with it. We didn’t want to store the huge car but we also couldn’t stand the thought of getting rid of it. After a little brainstorming we decided to cut the profile out and make it into art.

So Micah measured 2.5″ front the edge all along one side of the car and he starting cutting.

Using a jig saw he cut all the way from the front to the back of the car.

And an amazing piece of car wall art was born!

The finishing touch was add a couple of the tires from the soapbox car. I know not everyone has a soapbox car hanging out in their garage to make car wall art out of but I hope this inspires you to look for unusual pieces that you can turn into art in your home!
