A MUM transformed her boring garden shed into an incredible glam gin bar.
Rhian Alwen Evans jazzed up the old shed – which was destined for the tip – with pink paint, fairy lights and giant cans of G&T.
Rhian, from Wales, painted the garden structure in bright pink and blue paint – complete with sparkling pink lights.
The incredible space has been branded a "she shed" where Rhian can chill out and enjoy a gin and tonic.
She revealed that she used special outdoor paints – Dulux Weather Shield Quick Dry paint and Cuprinol Colour Garden, plus varnish on the floor for extra durability.
The thrifty mum fashioned gin bottle shelves out of old wooden boxes, and added doors to the outbuilding using old bits of wood.
Rhian also added a sign and sparkling fairy lights to complete the look.
She even paid tribute to a late friend who sadly passed away while she was renovating, with a meaningful sign that reads "cofio," which translates as "to remember" or "remembering" in Welsh.
Rhian posted to Facebook about the incredible upcycle job, writing: " This was my upcycled ‘Summer House’ now my lovely Gin Shed. The Shed was destined to the local TIP.
"Luckily my partner rescued it, he added red felt roof, old broken IKEA light fitting for roof centre, made new doors from scraps of wood he had and added new Perspex windows.
"I painted with Dulux weather shield Quick Dry paint, along with Cuprinol Colour Garden paint, and a varnish over the blue paint on floor.

"I recycled my old wooden boxes as shelves to store the bottles, and the sawn off unneeded shelf parts as ornament shelves.
