This original birdhouse design is a real blast from the past! Modeled after a vintage minibus, this nostalgic project has room for two lucky bird families and is sure to be a fun conversation piece.
Give your minibus birdhouse a standard paint job as shown or add colorful flowers and peace signs to create your own sixties era "hippy" or "love" van. Realistic features include front and rear tires, headlights and taillights along with front and rear bumpers. Bottom removes for easy cleaning of both units. Can be hung from eyescrews or mounted on a post.
