Milwaukee Modern [1] turns the discarded and unloved into beautiful art for the home or office. Above they transformed the hood of a 1975 Lincoln Continental by grinding a rusted image of Abraham Lincoln [2] ground into its paint. The piece is approximately 75 lbs, but can be mounted on the wall like any piece of hanging art. Check out their site here [1] to see other upcycled pieces and to learn more about custom works!
