Our brand new bus!

Sorry it’s been a bit quiet round here recently. We’ve been really busy. But we’re back with exciting news – our bus is back on the road!

When we last posted about the bus, the floors and the wall had just been completed. Since then, Christina has been hard at work putting the finishing touches to the bus, including a new seating area at the back and lots of upcycled accessories.

Just look at the difference!
The bus before and afterAnd here are some close ups of the old items that have been given new lives as accessories.

Our leaflets have been transformed into works of art. The tiles in the background are made from recycled plastic products – the colourful panel in the centre used to be toothbrushes!

This ironing board frame is now being used as a table – a lucky find and a great idea!

And these old tyres make a great stool.

We’ve had lots of positive comments already and even some press coverage. If you’d like to see the bus for yourself, it’s often outside Marks and Spencer on Union Street – keep an eye on our Facebook page or Twitter for the dates. Or if you’re in the Powis area of Aberdeen, pop along to our Kittybrewster office on Monday 12th May at 11.30 for a special viewing. Hope to see you on board soon!
