A woman has managed to create an incredible Wendy house for her children for just £40 and it's incredible.

Suzy Greene and her husband, Ash, built the playhouse using wood, MDF and wallpaper before decorating the "cottage" with faux foliage, plants and a cute teepee tent.

Sharing the creation on Facebook's DIY On A Budget Group, Suzy explained the playhouse has been filled with a toy kitchen and an armchair, adding that it fits both herself and her husband as well as their two children.

She told Tyla: "We decided to create this as a little hideaway for our daughter, three and son, one as somewhere they can play together, as it was something both me and my husband would have loved as kids.

"The structure was mostly done by my husband who used wood from B&Q's charity donation box, where you can take any wood and give a donation to their Shelter charity.

"I did the decor using paint tester pots, artificial plants and wallpaper which was reduced to £1 a roll."

In the original post on Facebook, Suzy explained it only cost her £40.

"[It was] all done on a budget total cost around £40," Suzy wrote.

The mum-of-two went on to explain the brick-effect wallpaper was from Wilko and B&M while she snapped up the wood from B&Q "for a small donation".

"It's our first time doing something like this. The eucalyptus leaves around the edge are from The Range, the plant box we got in the sale, £3 at Next and the roof is a garden trellis on clearance at B&Q.

"The walls of it are MDF which we got from B&Q, it was an old display they broke down and had for free with a suggested donation to a local charity which we did.

"It's quite big inside, fits myself, my husband and two kids with a toy kitchen and armchair (might move into it myself)."

The photographs show each stage of the construction, from the foundations, to the finishing touches.

And the finishing touches are *so* cute, with Suzy also adding some artificial grass and a teepee tent in the 'cottage garden'.

There's even an adorable house number on the front door and a cute trellis on the roof.

Meanwhile, the inside of the play cottage features snazzy parrot wallpaper, a woodland-themed bunting and a polka dot arm chair.

NGL, we're considering recreating this in our own homes...
