Whether you need a pick-me-up treat, a few laughs, or a dose of inspiration, trust Facebook to deliver as you scroll through hundreds of posts on your feed. Recipes, DIY videos, inspo boards, and home improvement projects get easily shared on social media and we happily stumbled upon an amazing makeover that involves a dusty, old bus. Who knew it can be transformed into something so cozy and inviting?

Mundo desconocido (Unknown World in English) shared a series of photos showcasing the transformation of the bus into a bright and functional home. After browsing through the pictures, we honestly want one, too. 

Prior to the makeover, the bus looks straight out of a junkyard.

Old and rusted, it’s safe to assume that it’s been years since it was last used.

Inside the old bus, dirty and old seats can be seen.


To start the makeover process, the seats were removed and the bus was stripped down to its structure.

After thoroughly cleaning the vehicle, the different areas of the tiny home were defined using wood. From having a dingy interior, it now has a snug appeal brought about by the use of wood. 


After years of working on the space, what used to be gloomy and unwelcoming became bright, charming, and functional. An all-white palette defines the space while touches of wood add warmth. Given the overall vibe, it's safe to say the owner chose a country-inspired aesthetic for her new space.

The wooden countertops work well with the white walls and surfaces seen in the space. Meanwhile, white curtains give enough privacy while letting in natural light.

If you look closely at the photos, you’ll see that the flooring was given an overhaul as well. The dark wood flooring gives the newly renovated space a country vibe that complements the white and wood elements.

To personalize the space, the owner added works of art and maximized one countertop by using it as a work area. She also cleverly incorporated seating and storage nooks to make the most of the space.

The sleeping area is compact yet cozy, with an inviting bed, fluffy pillows, and quirky accessories adding color to the area. The windowsills serve as storage for essentials and the owner’s favorite books.

With her pretty and cozy home, we’re sure the owner looks forward to coming home to this space every day. It would be extra fun if this is a mobile home, don't you agree?
