Savvy mother transforms Wendy house into an incredible outdoor cafe

Brits have been eager to renovate their outdoor spaces in time for summer – including one savvy mother who has transformed her ‘toy dumping ground’ shed into an incredible outdoor cafe for just £14.

Her post was quickly inundated with 5,000 likes and more than 500 comments – with fans claiming it’s ‘so gorgeous they could cry’.
