Vintage Trucks Turned Into Awesome Upcycled Furniture

That old truck sitting in your field or backyard could be transformed into a stylish, one-of-a-kind furniture piece. With some elbow grease and a dash of creativity, the weathered metal, wood, and glass from classic trucks can be repurposed into sturdy, rustic furniture that makes a bold statement.

From headlight lamps to tailgate benches, vintage truck parts lend themselves remarkably well to upcycling projects. Check out some of the amazing Americana pieces that others have created.
