A little inspiration: A refurbished school bus gets a new leash on life as a travelling cabin!

I was in need of a bit of inspiration this morning and this refurbished Canadian school bus had me at hello.

In ten days this trusty 1979 GMC / Bluebird 36-seater school bus was transformed by Marco Khalil and Caroline West, owners of pop-up vintage shop Eight Inch Rule. Impressive. First everything in the bus was stripped out: the seats, stanchions, heaters. The floor was covered in vinyl, a timber day bed was fitted as well as out cute pieces of furniture sourced from many flea market visits. When not serving as a mobile store of travelling wares, the bus doubles as a camper for the two when they hit the road each Summer.
