Stacey Solomon recently moved into a new Essex mansion, adorably dubbed 'Pickle Cottage'.

The Loose Women panellist, alongside her fiancé Joe Swash and her three kids, has wasted no time in redecorating the gorgeous home.

And on Tuesday it as time for her to focus her attention on the old-fashioned fireplace in her baby son Rex's room.

Posting to her Instagram stories the former X Factor contestant explained she had chosen to tackle the fireplace "because it's small and hopefully achievable".

Before revealing that although she did manage to transform it, after she had finished "Rex woke up, ran in and made a nice big foot print in it".



But how exactly did the star revamp the fireplace?

Well, the mum-of-three set to work, there was a wooden mantel, as well as patterned tiles with a floral design on the hearth.

The home-improvement pro then began cleaning the fire, then she used dark blue paint at the base as well as inside the fireplace, followed by a light grey paint to cover the wood and to flank the patterned centre. It looks so much more sleek!


The star explained to her 4.3 million followers that the reason she redecorated the fireplace was: "I didn't know how to theme the room around all that was going on in this fireplace so as lovely as it was I needed something a bit more neutral."

She then added: "It looks very silver where the paint is wet but its actually a really nice matt grey when it dries…

"Also imagine the breast painted and the skirtings changed it'll look right eventually. One thing at a time."

Last month Stacey expressed her worry that she was being ostentatious by showing fans inside her large home.

The star said: "I'll stop bombarding you, I promise.

"Don't want to look like I'm a massive show off or make anyone feel rubbish or anything… I'm just sooo excited."

The mum-of-three and her family chose to property because it was close to their relatives.
