Since then mum-of-three Stacey kept her fans up to date with all the renovations that have taken place.

Most recently the DIY queen totally transformed her conservatory into a purple haven with £11.99 flower garlands hung from the ceiling.

She also gave their Wendy House in their huge garden a lick of paint, which is located very near to their swimming pool and hot tub.

Earlier today on her Instagram Story the star revealed that in the next few weeks the pool will be safe to use with a proper cover.

Earlier this month the star tackled youngest son Rex’s bedroom and managed to give it an amazing make-over on a budget.

She also showed off a jaw-dropping staircase transformation as she ditched the red carpet around the house and stripped back the oak in each room.

Stacey loves to share all her transformations on Instagram, and one that divided fan opinions was her decision to paint over her traditional fireplace in Rex’s room.

She painted over the oak wood, white tiling and a gorgeous floral pattern with a matte black and grey paint.

The telly star has also proudly showed off her blue toilet transformation last month.

Stacey and Joe’s bedroom was one of the first things she tackled and wasted no time letting her Lion King mirror take centre stage of the space.

The impressive pad has come on leaps and bounds since she revealed the property on Instagram in March.

After announcing the exciting news on her page she went on to show teasers of the scenic landscape around the property, which has been aptly named Pickle Cottage after her youngest son Rex, who is nicknamed “pickle”.

Pictures showed a closer look at the huge home, which features Tudor-style wooden beam detailing on the outside of the property.

The wooden beams run throughout the country home, with Stacey detailed is “further from the city and closer to their family” in Essex.

The kitchen is fitted with oak cupboards and a large green cooker and gas hob, with tiled flooring and large panelled windows.

Underneath large chandelier lights, the dining rooms looks out onto the acres of land that come with the home, making it a perfect setting to raise her boys Zachary, 11, Leighton, eight, and Rex, one.

A small snug living room sits on the side of the house, as well as a bright conservatory and large carpeted drawing room with library shelves.

Upstairs there are multiple bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a large dressing table space, and a family bathroom.

Admitting the house needs “love and TLC”, she and fiancé Joe Swash hinted they may be renovating the opulent property.

She told her Instagram following last week: “So, for a very long time Joe and me have been searching for our forever home, further from the city and closer to our family.

“A few months ago we saw a house that we couldn’t even believe was on the market and in the same budget as our house now.

“There were so many signs. I really believe in signs and they were everywhere it just didn’t seen real. We thought it was too good to be true.

“We have not wanted to say anything just in case it didn’t happen. Today we got confirmation that everything could go ahead.

“I think we just thought for so long that something would go wrong so today just didn’t feel real. But it is real.

“The house needs lots of love and TLC which can cannot wait to show it with. But Pickle Cottage is going to be ours and we cannot wait.”

Stacey shared a variety of pictures from the outside of the home and the surrounding lands in the sunshine as she shared the good news.

She and Joe had already appeared to put up a sign in front of the cottage to officially claim it as their own.

The Loose Women star, who regular shares home improvements and crafts, promised that her tips would continue in the new home.

She added: “Your messages have me actually sobbing. Joe is laughing his head off at the state I’m in.

“I can’t wait to bring you all here and tap to tidy the life out of everything. I can’t wait to have a whole new project and adventure to start with you all.”
