Loose Women presenter Stacey Solomon and her fiance Joe Swash bought the lavish £1.2million mansion earlier this year. They have since been spending much of their spare time doing it up
Stacey Solomon has unveiled her stunning living room transformation after completing the makeover in just one afternoon.
The pregnant Loose Women presenter took to social media on Friday to reveal she had overhauled the living space in the lavish mansion she shares with fiance Joe Swash.
The mum-of-three, who is expecting her fourth child – and second with former EastEnders star Joe – uploaded a time-lapse video to Instagram that documented her impressive handiwork as she painted a feature wall.
“So this is how it all started, I painted the wall,” Stacey began, as she posted the video on her Instagram Stories.
The former X Factor star, who is around four months pregnant, wore an industrial-style face mask to protect herself from any of the paint fumes.
Stacey then hung “cheap oak frames”, which she said she bought from IKEA, and filled them with dried flowers from small businesses, as well as a beautiful watercolour painting of her 12-week scan photo.
The mum-of-three told her followers she started with a small renovation job to motivate her to tackle other bigger jobs that need doing in her multi-million pound country home.
“I decided to start with this little wall because I have no motivation at the moment so I thought I’d do something not too overwhelming and hope it might give me the inspiration to keep going,” Stacey explained, adding that she has more ideas for the living room space.
“I can’t wait to carry on in here,” she said, telling her followers that she’d even replaced the skirting boards too.
The presenter also poked fun at herself when she revealed that she’d run out of dried flowers and grass to fill all of the photo frames, she decided to print out a random picture of house she’d found online.
“I don’t know why this has ticked me so much… I have no idea where this beautiful building is… I didn’t have enough grass to fill all of the frames,” she laughed.
“So I just had to print random free pictures and hope for the best! If anyone does know where this is I’d love to know, then I can pretend I’ve been there and took the picture,” Stacey joked.
Stacey and Joe purchased the lavish Essex home earlier this year, which they sweetly named Pickle Cottage after their two-year-old son Rex, who is nicknamed ‘Pickle’.
The Tudor-style country pile has a library and a swimming pool, as well as almost three acres of land, and the star revealed she and Joe were inspired to buy it to be closer to their families.
