SINCE moving into her dream home Pickle Cottage earlier this year, Stacey Solomon has slowly but surely been working her way through each room and giving it a much-needed update.
And luckily for us fans, she's taken her 4.4million Instagram followers along for the ride.
After finishing Rex's bedroom last week, the savvy mum-of-three has now turned her attention to the Wendy House that was gathering dust in the family's Essex garden.
Posting on her Instagram story yesterday afternoon, the Loose Women star filmed herself giving the playhouse a new lease of life with a fresh lick of paint.
When Stacey, her fiance Joe Swash and their sons moved into their new £1.2million "forever" home in March, the Wendy House in the garden was painted black and white to match the exterior of their new property.
As she went over the black wood in grey paint, Stacey explained: "I've only done the front [so far].
"I decided to try a different lighter colour because I thought if it looks wrong, it's easy to change it back to black."
Once this was done, Stacey gave the indoor paving stones a good sweep, added a "Little Pickle Cottage" doormat and made a flower basket to display at the front – and let's be honest, it looks as good as an ACTUAL house.
Showing off the finished results, the mum added: "Aww it needs another coat and then I'm sealing it all but I really love it."
Asking for her followers' advice, she continued: "I didn't want to paint the roof because I love the wood but do you think?"
So far Stacey has also fixed up the property's outdoor swimming pool, her little blue toilet and also turned her attention to the gorgeous stain-glassed conservatory.
Stacey, Joe, 38, and her three sons Zachary, 13, Leighton, eight, and Rex, one, moved into their new forever home last month.
The Tap To Tidy author shared the happy news with a picture of the whole family standing outside their new pad on Instagram.
She captioned the post: "🏡 Home Sweet Home 🏡 And so a new chapter begins 🥺 We can not even describe how strange it feels that this is home. 😭
"Never in a million years did we ever think this would be. We feel so lucky and are so grateful to have found this hidden treasure closer to our family and further out."
For more amazing home transformations, this is how Stacey Solomon transformed baby Rex’s bedroom on a budget – from £10 Amazon stickers to DIY chalkboard wall.
And this DIY fanatic quoted £500 for new worktops gives hers a B&Q makeover for just £21.
