Midday Muse: Beauty in Rusted Cars

For proof that we can find inspiration anywhere, take a look at the fading paint colors on these rusted old automobiles. I love the way the brick reddish-brown looks against the baby blue. How could you use these ideas in a room?

You are way creative! I never in a million years would look at that photo and think about interior paint colors!

There is a line of old cars that have been there for years that are all rusted here in North Florida. You can't go to an art show without seeing someone's pictures of this.

i like pinupsweetheart's idea. also, i think if you had a bit of red or something on a wall and added some plaster to the top while leaving some of it red behind it'd be so nice and rustic/shabby chic looking.

I don't like rust color or anything like it. I don't like that color blue either.

I think if you take the blue and rough brush it on a wall and use the rust color as an accent along the border or baseboards it will really pop.

I really like that look, it almost looks intentional!

Actually the rust reminds me of the red tones in dark wood furniture and that always looks fantastic w/blue. I also like the green color on the other truck. I think this photo would make a cool art piece for a "Man" room/office/den. I can totally picture my father (a retired mechanic) having this next to his pool table and bar.

I am also a fan of the green on the second truck. Has lots of potential.

I remembered a rusted wall on Trading Spaces...but I wasn't a big fan of it.
