During a recent visit to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, we came across this artwork by Mike Wilkins titled "Preamble" (to the U.S. Constitution) made from license plates. With all the transplants to DC, we love the idea of reusing out-of-state license plates as artwork or home decor. In our house tour of Helen's DC condo, we showed Helen's clever use of an old license plate as a toilet paper holder (shown again below the jump)...

What else could you do with old license plates?
