Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash are busy getting used to life with their newborn daughter Belle.

The pair - who also share Rex, three, and Rose, one, - welcomed the tot in their Essex mansion, Pickle Cottage earlier this year.

Pickle Cottage is also home to Stacey's two older boys Zachary and Leighton, who are from previous relationships.

After deciding to renovate their home herself, Stacey regularly shares her journey with her 5.6 million Instagram followers.

Let’s take a look at the incredible transformation of Stacey and Joe's home…

Stacey has been hard at work in the kitchen, getting a new tile floor and beautiful oven which she has even named.

She recently told her followers: "Audrey the Aga. I love her so much.

"We fell in love with her when we moved in but it was gas & used a huge amount from a tank in the garden, so we sent her back to Aga for them to repurpose & switched it for an electric one to save energy.

"I called her Audrey and I’m going to jazz the wall up behind her with something special so she stands out even more."

Stacey recently showed off her beautiful dining room complete with a table big enough for the whole family.

Taking to Instagram over the Easter holidays, Stacey revealed the long wooden table with benches either side.

The light and airy room opens right out into her stunning garden with patio doors, perfect for the kids running in and out.

Loose Women star Stacey made the ultimate hangout spot for her husband Joe as his 40th birthday present.

Stacey documented the entire process as she spray painted the cupboards and even made Joe his very own juice bar.

As well as a pool table and seating area, the room is also littered with memorabilia from significant achievements during Joe's career, including his hat from I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and his trophies from MasterChef and Dancing on Ice.

The downstairs loo has also had a spruce with Stacey and Joe giving it some TLC.

Stacey decided to keep the original toilet and sink, but gave the walls a repaint and added shelving, as well as pampas grass from Primark.

Belle's nursery

Stacey picked neutral colours for baby Belle's nursery and even made decorations herself.

Before giving birth, the mum-of-five revealed she had made her daughter a decoration with a bear in a hot balloon basket decorated with pearls.

She wrote: “From Mummy with love, little one. Patiently waiting for you to be here, we are all so excited to finally meet you baby girl.

"She’s very comfy apparently, letting me know who’s boss already. Now just need to find a safe, out of reach, little cubby hole to put this in."

Rose’s nursery

Stacey transformed Rose’s room into a pink paradise with a feature flower wall that she made herself.

Opening about the theme before she gave birth, Stacey previously said: “To my Darling daughter, I’ve loved every single second of making this special place for you. My whole heart, and soul is in this room and I would do it all again if I could.

“I can not wait to bring you home here and show you everything. I can not wait to hold you, cuddle you, sing to you, feed you and put you to bed in here. I’m so proud of everything in here and it’s been the best feeling making it and I’ll miss being covered in pink paint 😂

“We can not wait to see you little one. To the moon and stars and back again princess, we love you. 💕”

Rex’s room has also had a makeover, this time with a grey animal theme.

The walls are decorated with trees and pandas, along with a quote that reads: "The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."

The two-year-old also has his own special bathroom which is dinosaur themed.

There are T-Rex toys and dinosaur footprints stuck on the floor, with Rex clearly over the moon with his loo.

Stacey’s house is set in 2.5 acres of gardens which was actually the setting of her wedding day last year.

After tying the knot, the star shared a video of the stunning set up she created in the garden of the family home which included a large marquee.

Sharing a before and after clip of the Dutch barn structure in her garden, Stacey filmed the long wooden tables and white chairs laid out underneath.

The open-sided barn had long wooden tables and white chairs laid out underneath, while the structure was adorned with strings of fairy lights and white flowers.
