Retro never really goes out of style. It tends to circle back around. Perhaps the reason is that retro things remind us of a different time when things were all about movement and freedom.

Nothing captures this essence quite as well as the retro Volkswagon bus. Maybe that is why the vehicle has become such an iconic part of our culture.

While the VW bus is quite unique by itself, there is a cute way of bringing its aesthetic into our homes. Many people have been showing off a rather interesting DIY decor that is sure to brighten up any room.

The project in question is taking a dresser and turning it into a personalized VW bus. As anyone can see from the photos, it definitely requires an element of creativity and imagination to pull off.

There was a photo posted to Facebook by Peacock Place, which is a Huntsville, Alabama-based antique mall, that shows a very subdued greyish-blue and white dresser that looks just like a VW bus.

Another Facebook user, Wendell Raymond, shared a VW-inspired dresser complete with headlights. Quite adorable.

Then, there is the furniture store in Macon, Georgia, which showed off their own creations. They recreated a VW bus with a red hue. They even installed slanted handles in order to give it a windshield wiper effect.

Of course, we can’t forget about the Facebook user Lucinda Christian Bunn, who proudly showed off her creation of a pink and blue dresser decorated with flowers.

If you’re thinking that you’d love a similar design in your home, then you’re in luck. There are plenty of tutorials and aesthetic inspirations online like on Pinterest. All you need to do is just pick what look would best suit you.

If you want a tutorial, you can check out a YouTube one created by DIY expert, Ashley Blake. In her video, she even shows you how to attach an adorable chalkboard window to your dresser so that it’s both pretty and functional.
