Stacey Solomon showed off her DIY skills yet again after she transformed her little Wendy House in her back garden from shabby to chic in a matter of hours.

Stacey and fiance Joe Swash and their brood moved into their stunning new home, dubbed Pickle Cottage, earlier this year and Stacey has been busy redecorating the house from top to bottom since they moved in.

Her 4.5 million fans have eagerly watched the mum-of-three gradually renovate the sprawling £1.2 million house with a range of handy hacks, with her unique Tap to Tidy technique online.

And Stacey just revealed that the brood is in fact expanding, with the very exciting news that baby number four is on the way.

The 'so grateful' mum-to-be shared her happiness with her millions of Instagram followers via an emotional pregnancy reveal on Wednesday night.



But she explained it hadn't been an easy journey – with 'quite a few' heartbreaking losses before she reached this point.

To celebrate, Stacey and her sons, Leighton, Zachary and Rex put the finishing touches to the Wendy house "ready to welcome a new pickle into [their] lives."

The Loose Women star has already shared how she carefully updated her sons beloved Wendy house with a lick of paint and some beautiful decorations.

Stacey, who recently transformed her one year old's room, took her followers along on the journey as she ditched the dark black on the wood panels on the front of the Wendy house and opted for a lighter coat of pale grey and white for the exterior.

The doting mum captioned her video: “I’ve only done the front … I decided to try a different lighter colour because I thought if it looks wrong, it’s easy to change it to black.”

For her mini home makeover, Stacey spent time painting over the black paint and opted for a lighter base to show off some of the old-fashioned fittings like the door hinges and the diamond windows.

After reworking the colour on the front of the house, Stacey, who recently butt heads with her fiancé Joe over her floral decorations, made sure to add some adorable final touches to make the house fit in with the rest of the garden and mirror their luxurious new property.

In addition to the new paint job, Stacey added a beautiful wooden sign which is engraved with Pickle Cottage on the front along with a small doormat similar to the one she has at the front door of her house, which says Little Pickle Cottage.



She also fitted the house with a sweet bouquet of fake yellow flowers in the shape of a love heart which she hung on the front door.

Stacey filmed Joe and little Rex holding beams as they wandered over to the Wendy house to put finishing touches to the house.

The 31 year old shared a clip of Zachary, 13, getting the painting under way as he touched up the Wendy house with white.

The end result looks amazing and the star even positioned a bench in front of the house, which boasts a picket fence around it, where she and each put their handprints using purple paint.



To complete the look, Stacey paired the bouquet with a bunch of fake daffodils in a concrete pot underneath the windowsill to match the pale grey and white house.

Proud of her handiwork, The TV personality took to Instagram to show off her afternoon transformation on the miniature house.

She captioned the post: “Awww it needs another coat and then I’m sealing it all but I really love it …”

Stacey reached out to her fans to ask for their opinion on the new Wendy house as she considered painting the roof and the paving slabs leading up to the house a different colour too.

Her youngest son, Rex, one, was blown away by the drastic update to the house as he wasted no time in wandering through his little house with the help of his sidekick, the family dog Peanut.

He dashed inside the lovely little house with his little furry friend hot on his heels as he called out his cousin’s name.
